This year, the market announced a new feature open to all non-profits applicants on a weekly basis. One organization is selected per week and authorized to set up a booth at no charge for purposes of creating greater community awareness of its mission and programs. Last week the honor went to the Kiwanis Club of Marco Island for their annual Christmas sale of fresh balsam fir wreaths handmade in Maine. All proceeds go toward their scholarship fund for local teens. Seen here from left are members Debbie Weins, Joan Pidherny and Stevie Vann, Vice President and Fundraising Chair. “We decided with all this visibility we should also do a bake sale to increase our revenues,” Vann said. “We’re very grateful to the market!”
