Craft Festival supports local charity

Craft Festival supports local charity

On Saturday Amy’s Attic in Harker Heights hosted a craft festival benefiting Furniture for Families, Inc.

“We have bi-annual craft festivals. This is the third one we have had and we have them to benefit a charity organization somewhere in the Central Texas area. This one we chose Furniture for Families, Inc.,  and their purpose is to buy gently used furniture and to put them in the hands of people that are without basic furniture items,” said Bethany Burkholder, Marketing Manger and Public Relations Manager of Amy’s Attic Self-Storage.

Donations for the charity are raised through vendor fees and raffle ticket sales.

“All of the booth fee’s from all of our vendor’s as well as the raffle tickets goes to the charity. Every dollar we bring in goes right back to that charity and nothing goes to advertising costs or anything else; 100% goes to that charity,” said Burkholder.

In addition to the raffle, Amy’s Attic also had a like and share contest on Facebook leading up to the festival.

“Coves Custom Cakes donated our most popular prize, which was cheesecake filled strawberries. That went like wildfire,” said Burkholder.

This festival brought in 50 vendors from various areas.

Those vendors included Cove Custom Cakes, Dell Military, Doodlebugs, Lemongrass Spa, Texas Land & Cattle, Illuminate 24 Hour Gym, Knotty Niki’s Crochet, Nada Lotta Ranch, Hamm’s Martial Arts, Expressionista Boutique, Created by Debi, Daily Lift by WIN, Angies Circle of Love, AVH Jewelry, and many more.

Amy’s Attic is very involved in the community and is always looking for new ways to support the Central Texas area communities.

“We are always looking to get involved, so if there is a way to support the community that is our number one goal is to support our community; so if any other companies or anyone else needs help we are more than happy to partner up with them,” said Burkholder.

This festival brought in $$1496.15 that will go straight back to Furniture for Families, Inc.

Furniture for Families, Inc. is a non-profit charitable organization that was started by Ronnie and Sandra Skinner who own Ashley Furniture Home Store.
