The open spaces at Lincoln Elementary School will be transformed into a bustling marketplace.
There will be food and clothing vendors stretching throughout campus, a coffee bar and book fair, as well as a Christmas tree to collect donated gifts.
The first annual Lincoln School Holiday Boutique is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature more than 35 vendors “offering their best Christmas gifts at great prices,” according to the event flyer.
The best part: Proceeds go to a worthy cause – education.
Sponsored by the Lincoln Parent-Teacher Club, the Holiday Boutique will help school-wide functions, including: the PTC, athletics, leadership activities, the library and science camp.
The PTC will also conduct a coat and barely-used clothing drive to benefit the Lincoln Clothes Closet.
The school is located at 750 East Yosemite Avenue and the boutique will be set up in the cafeteria and courtyard. Guests can park in the staff parking lot off Powers Avenue.
A coffee bar will be open to patrons until 11:30 a.m. The coffee will be provided by the student- and teacher run shop, Raider’s Joe.
Those that donate an unwrapped Christmas gift for less fortunate children will receive a raffle ticket. Donated gifts will be placed beneath the Christmas tree. Additional raffle tickets will be sold at the entrance and prizes, donated by participating vendors, will be raffled off every half-hour through the 4 o’clock hour.
In conjunction with the boutique, Lincoln’s book fair will celebrate its opening day in the library.
