This weekend the Fremont Eagles Club will be overrun with vendors and crafters as the fraternal organization hosts their annual Fall Craft Show on Saturday.
The event, on the main floor of the Eagles Club at 649 North Main Street, will feature more than 20 local vendors and crafters selling products including Avon, Mary Kay, Thirty-One, La Lu Rose, jewelry, Sentsy candles, crochet, and other crafts and goods.
“We have all different kinds of crafts and makeup products, there is going to be a big variety of stuff at the show this year,” Marie Peatrowsky, president of the Fremont Eagles Auxiliary, said.
Along with supporting local vendors with a space to sell their makeup, crafts, and jewelry the event also supports several charities supported by the Nebraska State FOE.
“Right now we have 20 tables reserved already, and all of the proceeds from the reservation of tables and the lunch will go support breast cancer and autism,” Peatrowsky said.
The event is free to attend and while shopping through the different vendors at the show, attendees will also be able to enjoy lunch at the Eagles Club as well.
“We have chicken noodle soup, and sloppy joes, and chicken salad and all of the proceeds from the meals will go towards the charities as well,” Peatrowsky said.
The proceeds will benefit the Nebraska State FOE’s Hoyt’s Hope Charity, which this year is the University of Nebraska Foundation: Cancer Center Breast Cancer Research and Development Fund.
The fund supports the UNMC Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center mission of discovering better ways to diagnose, treat and prevent breast cancer.
Along with the Breast Cancer Research and Development Fund, the proceeds also go to the State Eagles Auxiliary’s ongoing Children’s Autism Outreach Programs which support the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Local crafters and vendors who may be interested in reserving a table at the craft show are encouraged to call Peatrowsky at 402-720-0072.
