First Choice Holds Holiday Market for the Public

On November 14th, First Choice Center for Women will host its 3rd annual Silent Auction fundraiser at the New Albany Presbyterian Church. “This year we have added a little something different”, reports Lacretia Wilkinson, director. “In addition to our Silent Auction we will host a Holiday Market of 20 vendor booths from local area merchants who handcraft specialty gift items. It will be a great time to kick off your Christmas shopping.”

First Choice is a non-profit medical pregnancy center that offers pregnancy testing, limited obstetrical ultrasound, parenting and baby care classes, as well as post abortion counseling and support groups. All of the services at First Choice are free.

“It takes donations from our supporters and fundraisers like this to meet our yearly budget needs,” states Wilkinson. “Without the support of the community we would not be able to make a difference in the lives of young women, children, and families.”

The Silent Auction and Holiday Market will be held from 4-8 p.m. in the gym behind the New Albany Presbyterian Church. BBQ plates will be for sale for $10 each in the fellowship hall of the church. There is no charge for admission to shop.

Please call First Choice at 534-7061 if you would like more information on the fundraising event or if you would like to donate an auction item.
