South Lake Tahoe, CA – Get into the holiday spirit and support community health at the forty-fifth annual Holiday Faire on Sunday, November 8.  Community members and visitors of all ages are encouraged to attend this merry event at St. Teresa Grace Hall.

Every year, Barton Auxiliary volunteers and employees from The Attic Thrift Store select their favorite holiday and winter donations to sell at the Holiday Faire.  Items available for purchase include holiday decorations, jewelry, antiques and collectibles, purses, gifts, and winter wear.

"The Auxiliary volunteers donate countless hours to prepare for this big event,” says Joyce DeWitt, the Auxiliary President. “It is our largest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds support community health."

In 2014, the Barton Auxiliary raised $240,000 from The Attic and gift shop sales, personal donations, and holiday fundraisers. Barton Home Health and Hospice was given $10,000 for grief support program for patients and their families.  The remaining funds are being used to acquire a 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis, an advanced type of mammogram.

The Holiday Faire takes place from 9:00am and 3:00pm. Santa Claus will stop by between 10:00am and 2:00pm and lunch, bake sale treats, and Barton’s famous cheese balls will also be available for purchase.

Since 1960, the Barton Memorial Hospital Auxiliary have been an active group of volunteers who generously give their time and talents to support Barton Hospital, its patients, and the community. To learn more about the Barton Auxiliary and holiday, visit www.bartonhealth.org/auxiliary.
