Published 6:03 pm Thursday, December 2, 2010

The Local Women in Business Unite will hold their annual Holiday Open House at Green Creek Community Center, Inc., located on Coxe Road in Green Creek Saturday, Dec. 4, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Many businesses will be represented. While shopping you can see what is happening in the area with business and job opportunities.

This event has grown each year from just two businesses represented the first year to approximately 40 this year. Local businesses, crafters and cooks will be represented. Most of these will give away door prizes and/or services at their individual booths.

Each year the Local Women in Business Unite organizers choose a local nonprofit to sponsor at this event. This year they are donating to the Thermal Belt Outreach Ministry (TBOM) and Polk County High School Chorus. A basket containing more than $400 in goods and services will be raffled. You can purchase as many tickets as you wish. Proceeds will go to the PCHS Chorus. You can also receive one free ticket if you bring nonperishable food items or a new unwrapped toy for TBOM.

Breakfast and lunch plates will be sold in the cafeteria by members of the Patrons of Performing Arts.

If you are a local businesswoman and would like to represent and promote your business or craft at the next event contact Anita Bowyer at 828-817-1478 for information and space availability.
