The Alternative Gift Fair is an opportunity for people to donate to local and international charities by cash donations which are then used as gifts. Shoppers are given gift certificates which can then be gifted to friends so they can feel good that both of them donated to a good cause.
Instead of buying new gifts this year, give the gift that keeps on giving by donating money to a cause of your choice of the various charities. On your way to the Christmas Light Up in downtown Vernon why not stop in at the Schubert Centre from noon til 5 pm and do some early holiday shopping.
Applications for charities are still available for charities who wish to join this event and can be received by emailing Deryk Ellison co- chair at the following email:
