St. Jude's Charity Event
Saturday, May 15, 2010 8:00 AM
E Main St
Murfreesboro TN 37130
Beginning at 8 a.m., knitters and crocheters are invited to pull up a chair or comfy blanket and work on projects to donate to the patients at St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Examples are small chemo caps, security blankets, anything to help them feel more at home and not in a hospital setting. JoZoara Coffee Shop will be selling coffee and pastries throughout the day with part of the proceeds benefiting St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Not a wielder of knitting needles or a crochet hook? Chicks with Sticks will be accepting tax-deductable donations of money, new toys, pajamas, and anything else that would benefit the children at St. Jude.
The main event of the day will be the silent auction of the “St. Jude Children’s Hospital Blanket.” Members of the Chicks With Sticks group have knitted or crocheted blocks to form a 46 inch x 60 inch blanket of beautiful neutral colors to be sold in a silent auction on the day of the Stitch-A-Thon. The tax-deductable proceeds will go to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The blanket will go on display starting April 30 at JoZoara Coffee Shop, 536 North Thompson Lane in the Oaks Shopping Center. Please go by and have a look at this wonderful creation of some very awesome ladies! Bids for the St. Jude Children’s Hospital Blanket will start at $75 and will be accepted from 8 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. on the day of the event. Winner will be announced at 2:30 p.m.
Please come support Chicks With Sticks and JoZoara Coffee Shop as we try to make a difference in the lives of children being treated at St. Jude Children’s Hospital!
