HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE AND FUNDRAISER

Need to get some holiday shopping done?  Need a night out?  Want to help us raise some funds for the Mustard Seed?  We invite you to drop off your kids (5-12yrs) at the studio any time between 5 to 9pm on Thursday December 13th or Tuesday December 18th to enjoy an evening of winter arts & crafts, holiday movies and music, pizza, hot chocolate and fun.

Your kids can stay for the whole time or just for a couple hours while you take an evening to get some Christmas shopping done or enjoy some of the holiday magic around Victoria with a night out during the festive season.

Dates:  Thursday, December 13th and Tuesday, December 18th

Time:  Open House from 5pm to 9pm – kids can stay for the whole evening or just an hour or two – whatever works best for you.

Cost:  $5 per person to cover pizza and hot chocolate plus a donation of whatever you can afford (suggested donation $3-5 per hour).

Cash only please.

All proceeds will be donated to the Mustard Seed.

Space is limited so you may want to preregister to save a spot or you can just drop in that evening.  Hope to see you then!

Preregistration is now full for both evenings – but a couple spots are available at the door – especially between 7-9pm.  Thanks!
