AAHS launches Christmas gift idea fundraiser
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.
