FESTIVAL PASSPORT

WREATH SALE

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.

QUILT RAFFLE

Enter to win a one-of-a-kind hand-made quilt crafted by Stash Busters. The quilt, “Phancy dancing on Phinney,” was inspired by book Slice ’em and Dice’em by Nancy Brenan Daniel.  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.

Shop for community

Not only are you supporting local artisans, but you are also contributing to PNA’s nonprofit programs–such as a hot meal program, the Greenwood Senior Center, memory -loss programming,  kids’ programs, a tool lending library, an art gallery, a community woodshop, as well as numerous community projects, events, and classes.

Spread the cheer – volunteer!

It takes over a hundred volunteers to make Winter Festival a fantastic experience for our visitors! From baking and decorating to helping vendors unload and keeping an eye on the toilet paper levels, each “job” is vital.
