Saints Faith Hope and Charity Women’s Guild hosted its first “Fabulous Finds, A Day on the Town to Shop and Save” on April 26 in the downtown district of Winnetka.
The event featured in-store discounts and door prizes at more than 40 participating downtown Winnetka businesses. Many stores allotted a portion of their sales back to the Women’s Guild. Fabulous Finds concluded with a light lunch reception and a grand raffle at the Winnetka Community House.
Co-Chair Beth Healy reported the event raised more than $7,500 for charity organizations supported by the Women’s Guild. This was the first year the Women’s Guild chose the concept of a day of shopping for its annual fundraiser. Stated Healy, “While this event’s main goal was to raise money for the various philanthropic causes of the Women’s Guild of Sts. Faith, Hope and Charity Church, I believe it had a wonderful benefit of promoting shopping locally! We appreciate all of the Winnetka businesses, underwriters, and Grand Raffle donors who were so generous in their support of this fundraiser!”
Saints Faith Hope and Charity Women’s Guild is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to enrich the parish community through working together in ways that enrich the lives of others.
