The Casket - - Classified -

If you’re look­ing for Christ­mas gift ideas, the Antigo­nish Af­ford­able Hous­ing So­ci­ety (AAHS) has a cou­ple of sug­ges­tions.

AAHS will present an evening of mu­sic and song at the Bauer The­atre on De­cem­ber 20 and 21.

Home for Christ­mas: An Evening of Christ­mas Magic will fea­ture a tal­ented cast of lo­cal per­form­ers in­clud­ing Laura Teas­dale, the B2G Big Band, Brent Ban­ner­man, Sheumais Macleod, Mike and Rose­mary Melchin, An­drew and Asta Stalker, Phillip Cooper and Janet Be­cigneul, along with mem­bers of the Mau­reen Fraser School of Dance.

Tick­ets are $20 and can be pur­chased at the Antigo­nish 5 to $1 Store, Hawthorne Con­ve­nience or from AAHS board mem­bers.

For the young, and the young at heart, raf­fle tick­ets are also avail­able for a beau­ti­ful hand­crafted Vic­to­rian doll house, which is on dis­play in the win­dow of The In­sur­ance Store at the cor­ner of Main and Col­lege streets.

Lov­ingly hand­made 25 years ago by Donna Huffman, the doll house comes com­plete with fur­ni­ture for ev­ery room. While down­siz­ing af­ter her hus­band Stephen re­tired, she de­cided to donate the doll house to a good cause.

The lucky win­ner will be drawn at the Christ­mas con­cert on De­cem­ber 21.

Tick­ets, which are $2 each or three for $5, are avail­able from AAHS board mem­bers, or by con­tact­ing Janet Be­cigneul at 902-872-2729 or jbe­[email protected]­link.ca

Pro­ceeds from both fundrais­ing ini­tia­tives will go to sup­port the AAHS’S Hous­ing for Hope cap­i­tal cam­paign.
