Get fresh holiday decorations at The Phinney Neighborhood Preschool Co-op wreath sale. The wreaths are responsibly grown in Oregon, and are a beautiful Pacific Northwest blend of freshly cut noble fir, blue berried juniper, cedar and natural pinecones. They are $25 each and the proceeds support the preschool and scholarship fund.
Enter to win a one-of -a kind hand-made quilt crafted by Stash Busters. The quilt raffle is a Winter Festival holiday tradition and proceeds benefit PNA programs. Tickets are $1 or $5 for 6, and will be available in the Blue Building lobby and in the Phinney Center office before the event. Some lucky winner will get to take this work of art home after the raffle at 4 pm on Sunday. You do not have to be present to win.
