Health Sciences North Foundation held a Holiday Craft Fair and Bake Sale on Tuesday, November 17, 2015 at Health Sciences North. Over 20 local artisans and vendors showcased their businesses and unique items to the 4,000 staff members, volunteers and visitors at the hospital throughout the day.
Vendors at the 2nd annual HSN Foundation Holiday Fair were selling everything from handmade jewelry, scarves, and clothes to maple syrup, homemade soaps, holiday décor and more! This year, HSN Foundation teamed up with Merek Hospitality Inc. for a holiday bake sale, allowing staff, visitors and to have their holiday baking done for them with the busy holiday season approaching.
“We are always pleased to support the HSN Foundation`s initiatives as we take pride in the excellent work they put forth to better our local hospital and community, and of course it falls right into our wheelhouse whereby our talented Chefs get to show case their creations and interact with the public,” says Stewart Brown, Retail Food Services Director – Health Sciences North, Marek Hospitality Inc.
In addition to the crafts and baked goods, Health Sciences North Foundation was also selling snowflakes to hang on a Christmas tree in the main lobby of HSN as way to raise more funds to put the best equipment in the hands of HSN’s physicians, staff, researchers and learners.
“Our second annual Holiday Fair was a huge success,” says Debra Dawe, Manager, Community Engagement and event organizer. “The support from the vendors, artisans, and visitors to the Fair was tremendous and it is great to see the community to come together to support patient care right here at home.”
