A Westchase holiday tradition returns this month for the last time.
Come be a part of the community event you won’t want to miss! The 10th Annual and final Westchase Holiday Market will be held on Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Westchase Golf Club. All net proceeds from special raffles and silent auctions will be donated directly to Autism Speaks. Last year’s market raised
$4,300 for this great charity!
It’s fun for everyone! Let’s start with the shopping—this is the perfect place to pick up incredible, one-of-a-kind gifts, and dazzling, unique stocking stuffers. Original paintings, photography, drawing, jewelry and glassware, along with handmade craft items such as home decor, bath products, crochet, clothing, cork gifts and woodworking are among the many types of artwork that you can expect to find.
Let’s not forget the little ones! Santa will arrive to hear wish lists and pose for pictures from 1-3 p.m. Creative face painters will be on hand from 1-4 p.m. Best of Show, first and second juried prizes will be judged and awarded throughout the day. Grab a tasty bite from the grill at the beautiful Westchase Golf Club while listening to fabulous holiday music, including Music by Mark Stephan from 10 a.m.-noon, Taylor Evereth from 1-2 p.m., and Rockatar from 2-4 p.m.
Raffles and silent auctions this year will include incredible prizes from many of our participating vendors, as well as generous donations from the Florida Aquarium, 16 Central, C & C Painting, Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park, Isabel Herrera Hair, Clearwater Marine Aquarium, Tampa Bay Rays, and Urban Air Adventure Park, to name only a few! A special thank you to our Platinum Sponsor, Anne Hart of Florida Executive Realty, and our Friends of the Market, Leonard-Williams State Farm Insurance Agency, and Veritas.
