Staff Council Holiday Bazaar & Food Drive Huge Success!!

Thank You UVM Community for making this year's Staff Council Holiday Bazaar and Food Drive a huge success!

This year we had over 45 vendors from the UVM Community participate in the event on Wednesday, December 4, 2013 from 9am - 3pm in the Grand Maple Ballroom of the Davis Center.

Over 900 people attended the event making this the most attended Holiday Bazaar & Food Drive ever!

398 lbs of food was collected and $42 raised for the Chittenden Emergency Food Shelf.

Henna Tattoos by Parvin Pothiawala raised over $60 for the Staff Emergency Loan Fund.

Our Bake Sale and Raffle raised record amounts of funds to help defray the cost of future Staff Council Social Committee sponsored events for staff as well as support our Community Service Award Program.

All Raffle Prize winners have been notified, but you can find the full list of prizes and winners on the Holiday Bazaar & Food Drive website.

This event would not be possible without the help of so many dedicated members of the UVM Community. From those of you who took the time to share your baking talents with us for our Bake Sale to those who took an hour or more from your day to volunteer during the event, please know that the Staff Council and its Social Committee are extremely grateful for all your help.

This event has always been about building community while celebrating the talents of the people at UVM and doing something to benefit our greater community. We are glad to know that this year's event accomplished just that.

We look forward to organizing this event again next year and thank you for being a part of it.
