WINONA LAKE — Grace College will host its sixth-annual Night Market on Friday, Dec. 6, from 2-7 p.m. in the Westminster Banquet Room, 105 9th St., Winona Lake.
Night Market is an alternative Christmas shopping experience that offers the public a chance to purchase hand-crafted gifts from local and international artisans while supporting charitable causes, said a news release from Grace College.
“We have over 20 vendors at Night Market this year, some of which are Grace College students,” said Katie Miller, 2019 Night Market coordinator. “I am super excited for this event! It will be cool to see all of the unique items vendors have to sell,” Miller said.
Night Market offers a wide range of options to peruse in a market-style setting. Since the items being sold are handmade, each has a unique character and story associated with it that make the shopping experience special and memorable.
A portion of proceeds from the event will be donated to Boomerang Backpacks, an organization that helps fight childhood hunger. Boomerang Backpacks help nourish low-income elementary students by providing backpacks filled with free food for the weekend. In years past, Grace has raised several hundred dollars for Boomerang Backpacks, said the news release.
