Not only does The Bizarre Bazaar® create a distinctive shopping experience, it also provides an opportunity for many non-profit organizations and charities to raise funds for their respective causes. At last year’s show, the participating non-profit organizations reported total earnings of over $75,000 by either having a booth at the show or helping to staff the show.
Since 1990, the opening night of The Christmas Collection has benefited a local non-profit organization. This catered preview gala has become a popular Christmas shopping tradition. For the past 7 years, this preview gala has benefited VCU’s Massey Cancer Center and in 2009 netted over $75,000 for the organization.
This year’s Preview Night will again benefit World Pediatric Project and will be held on Wednesday night November 30, 2016. This event offers a preview for shoppers with a wine and cheese reception. Preview party tickets range from $45 to $100 in advance and are also available at the door the night of the event. Join the fun and holiday spirit while supporting this worthy cause!
It is The Bizarre Bazaar®’s hope that each year we are able to provide a unique opportunity for non-profit organizations around the Richmond area to raise much needed funds for all of their many worthy causes.
