2007 HOLIDAY BAZAAR WRAP-UP

 

The 50th annual Greenville Regional Hospital Auxiliary Holiday Bazaar established a new sales record of $46,232 last Saturday, December the 1st, thanks to the over 210 volunteers who staffed the booths, area business are that donated funds, anonymous contributors, and of course the holiday shoppers. 

 

This year’s proceeds, from the 28-booth event, were up 19% over the 2006 total.  Over half of the booths reported sales increases from the previous year.  The highlight of the auction was the sale of a football commemorating the Greenville High School Comets 2007 season, including autographs of the team.  The football sale is thought to have set a record for the highest price paid for a Holiday Bazaar Auction item. 

 

The Soup to Go booth, which sold frozen soups and dry soup mixes, was new to the Bazaar and generated a little over $1,600.   Funds from the bazaar will be used to fulfill the auxiliary’s three-year $600,000 pledge to the Greenville Regional Hospital Laboratory and Imaging Services renovation project. 

 

Remaining Bazaar items will be sold Saturday, December 8th, at the Greenville Kiwanis Club Pancake and Sausage Day at the Saint Lawrence Catholic Church from 7am to 2pm.
