We will be featuring a big screen TV raffle to benefit the Maniace family. Susan Maniace has been a vendor at this craft show and other local shows for many years and her 20-year-old daughter Olivia, who has cystic fibrosis, is currently at the Cleveland Clinic in serious condition, hopefully awaiting a lung transplant.

Raffle tickets for the TV will be sold at this event and also at the Holiday Hollow event in Holland. NY on Nov. 23rd from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. The drawing will take place on Nov. 23rd.
