El Karubah Shrine Christmas FEZ-tival
As we approach the Christmas season, I wanted to share some information about an upcoming event we are doing as a fundraiser for El Karubah Shriners. On December 8th & 9th, 2018, from 2:00 PM until 8:00 PM we are hosting our first annual Christmas FEZ-tival. The temple will be decorated and transformed into a Christmas themed Wonderland for the public to view and enjoy. Attendees will also be able to purchase tickets for a chance to win one (or more) of the many theme decorated Christmas trees, along with the presents under the tree, that are being provided by our tree sponsors. We will also have vendor booths selling crafts and other Christmas related items for the public to purchase. In addition, we will have food trucks and other food vendors in the parking lot and around the event for the public to purchase items from as they browse, shop, and enjoy the holiday themed festivities. Our entire building and property will be decorated for Christmas and attendees will be allowed to browse through the trees and enjoy the themes and decorations of each tree. Music and holiday entertainment will also be provided for attendees to enjoy. We have Santa Claus coming to the event on Sunday December 9th and people will be able to take free pictures with Santa.
Our hope is that this event will become a family tradition and groups will look forward to returning each year to take part in the Christmas Fez-tival. Admission is free to children 15 years old and under and only $2.00 for adults. Passes similar to those given out for the circus will be given to schools to help promote the event. These passes will be redeemable for a free treat for the child at a table inside the event. There will be other cookies and cakes sold or raffled as part of the event to help raise funds. We have several sponsors who are going to provide some really great trees for us to give away and this is shaping up to be a wonderful holiday event.
