Alternative Gift Fair and Bake Sale

When: Sat., Oct. 24, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. 2009

So many charity fundraisers feel like charity fundraisers. A few, though, qualify as special, and the annual Alternative Gift Fair and Bake Sale at Broadmoor Community Church (315 Lake Ave.) is among them. Long before the holidays, this event gives you countless opportunities to shop for gifts literally from around the world. Admission is free, and between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., you'll find 30 nonprofits selling everything from Peruvian alpaca sweaters and silk scarves from Southeast Asia to coffee and jewelry from Africa, Tibetan art and Nepalese shawls, not to mention Colorado-made crafts. Each nonprofit gets to raise awareness of how it's helping fight poverty, disease and other problems, while keeping 100 percent of its sales. (The bake sale offsets the day's expenses.) For more, call Carol Wilkinson at 576-4530. — Ralph Routon
