Fall Event Wrap-Up


A huge THANK YOU to everyone who sponsored, participated in, volunteered at, attended, promoted AND supported Funky Finds: A Holiday Shopping Experience!!!

• Funkiest Booth Contest: Thank you to everyone who voted for the Funkiest Booth at the event! The two vendors with the most votes were The Silver Craftsman and Candi Bebe Designs! Both vendors will receive a $25 Visa gift card from Funky Finds.

• Charities: Through the charitable raffle, we were able to raise $1,500.00 which is split evenly between The Humane Society of North Texas and Toys For Tots.

Event sponsor Quackerbox Creations, Ltd. screen printed event tees that were sold at the event & t-shirt sales generated $750.00 for HSNT.

Attendees generously donated over $500.00 in cash donations to Toys For Tots, as well as three large boxes full of toys.

This was the first Funky Finds event where Don’t Forget to Feed Me was in attendance. Attendees donated 230 pounds of pet food and $851.00 in donations which equates to one full month of pet food that will be distributed to their clients.

Perhaps the most exciting news is that fifteen dogs were adopted on-site at the event!

• Photos from the event can be found on Funky Finds' Facebook page.
