THIS MONTH IN FUNDRAISING
Here is how you can help support The Children’s Cottage this month:
- Holiday Bazaar: Join us for holiday festive-ities on Saturday, December 10th from 10 AM until 1 PM at The Children’s Cottage (2900 Larkspur Landing Circle in Larkspur). It’s fun for all ages with handmade crafts, tons of kids crafts and activities, photos with Santa, holiday goodies and much more!
- Buy Christmas Trees & Wreaths: Buy your Christmas tree or wreath through Sausalito Farms and benefit The Cottage! Sausalito Farms will donate $20 per Christmas tree and $10 per holiday wreath purchased by our families, friends and alums to The Children’s Cottage.
Fill out the form or place an online order at www.sausalitofarms.com (pre-orders got a slight discount last year). You’ll be able to still hand select the tree and/or wreath of your choice at the lot. Whether you place an online order, fill out the form or purchase directly at the lot, make sure to tell them that your purchase is for The Children’s Cottage. Thank you for supporting The Children’s Cottage this holiday season!
