MOMs club has annual craft, vendor boutique

The MOMS Club® of Coon Rapids is hosting its second annual craft and vendor boutique Saturday, Nov. 3, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Coon Rapids Evangelical Free Church, 2650 128th Ave. N.W.

The boutique will feature local vendors and artists with unique handcrafted items, which make great gift, according to Simone Simon, MOMS Club® of Coon Rapids.

There will also be representatives from home-based businesses to sell merchandise, Simon said.

All proceeds will fund club’s annual adopt-a-family service project this coming holiday season.

“This is an annual undertaking for the club, which raises as much money as possible to sponsor the larger families that others may not be able to afford,” Simon said. Last year’s boutique raised over $1,500 to support families in need over the holidays, she said.

In addition, there will be a bake sale and raffles. Admission is free.

“The MOMS Club® of Coon Rapids is passionate about supporting causes that aid mothers and children in our community,” Simon said.  “In addition to providing support and social networking for mothers at home with their kids, our chapter works fervently to give back in ways like this.

“Last year we raised over $7,000, all of which went back into the community.”
