“Holiday shoppers are sure to find unique treasures from vendors and local artisans. Proceeds raised from vendor registrations support Mid’s Annual Christmas Party for local families in need. All families and children in attendance receive gifts, dinner, and dessert, and families in attendance are also provided means to purchase a complete holiday meal,” explained Sarah Gariglio, Administrative Specialist to the Academic Deans and Mid Market organizer.
Since 1999, Mid Michigan College and its employees have supplied Christmas for at least 60 children from Clare and Gladwin counties every year.The event includes fun holiday activities and children have a chance to visit and have a photo taken with Santa.
“The children’s faces just light up, and that makes all of the hard work more than worth it,” said Gariglio.“The Mid Market vendor registration fees make up an important part of the funding for the Christmas Party.”
