2015 BAZAAR Report
Our 2015 Seasider Bazaar was held on Feb 13 and 14th at the Palm Beach Shores Community Center.
It was a great success in various ways.
It allowed local residence to clean their cupboards, closets and garages and know that their trash would be converted into some else’s treasures and that their donations would be going to a worthy cause.
It allowed local businesses to support us by sponsoring us with donated goods, food or gift certificates for our raffles.
It allowed the community to come together and volunteer their time and talents. This included Seasiders, friends and family along with the PBS Police, Volunteer Firefighters and Town Staff totaling approximately 100 people.
It allowed residence of PBS, visitors to Singer Island and people from further afield to come and experience the excitement of finding treasures and essentials that they did not know they needed. There was a full range of goods in one location. Ranging from plant to floral arrangements, from baked good to a food court, from knick knacks to fine collectibles, from crafts to kitchen gadgets, to electronics, from a 50/50 raffle to a beautiful quilt raffle.
Most importantly it allowed Seasiders to raise $11,700.00 for our local charities. This year the recipients of our funds were:
The Rotary Scholarship program, the Women’s Chamber Scholarship program, Lake Park Elementary School, St. George’s Meals Program, St. George’s After School Program, ConKerr Cancer, American Legion Riders and the PBS Volunteer Firefighters Association.
Thank you all for your support as we continue to service our community.
ALL PROCEEDS GO TO OUR LOCAL CHARITIES.
