A Night Before Christmas–a benefit for Children’s Village CDA @ Midtown Home & Vintage Market
Dec 20 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Please join us for our first annual “A Night Before Christmas” event and help us share a little holiday magic with the children of Children’s Village, a local non-profit which provides a home to children in desperate need of a safe haven from abuse, neglect, homelessness, and severe family crisis in the Coeur d’ Alene area.

~Bring the kids for pictures with SANTA and enjoy our free hot cocoa bar~Possibly LIVE music—-(we’re working on it😉)

We will be collecting donations (100% of your donations will go to Children’s Village), and in return, our vendors will be offering you a chance to finish up your Christmas shopping with some great savings (up to 25% off) on your total regular-priced purchases from 6-9pm. Here’s what we would like to offer you for your generosity to Children’s Village:

$5 cash/gift card donation = 5% off your total purchase

**UPDATED**~10 cash/gift card donation OR gently used or new clothing and books, NEW toys and games, NEW toiletries= 10% off your total purchase

$15 cash/gift card donation= 15% off your total purchase
$20 cash/gift card donation= 20% off your total purchase
$25+ cash/gift card donation= 25% off your total purchase

Besides a cash donation, Children’s Village is in need of GIFT CARDS this season, to help provide food, clothing, school supplies, and toiletries for the kids. Grocery/clothing store gift cards and restaurant gift cards (which are useful to their mentoring programs) are the most appreciated.

If you would like to donate a Midtown Market gift card, we will offer a 15% discount on donated gift cards (and we do have some cute beanies/scarves, clothing, bath/body products, books/games, jewelry, tutus, hair bows, and vintage toys that kids would enjoy, in case you are wondering what we have for kids! 🙂 )

Please help us make this a successful event for Children’s Village, AND if you’ve been wanting to do a little something to give back to your community this Christmas season–Well, this is YOUR chance! EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR helps this wonderful non-profit continue to help out these children in desperate need, long after the holidays are over. AND— even if you cannot make it to this event, we would REALLY appreciate if you could help us out by SHARING this event and inviting ALL the friends on your NICE list! 😊

Midtown Market customers!—Let’s Open our hearts and our wallets and show Children’s Village how much we really care about the tireless work and long hours they put in every day to better the lives of these little ones—day in and day out!! ❤️❤️

Take a look at their reviews and follow along with all the good works that Children’s Village is doing for so many kids & families in our community:

A Night in Bethlehem @ Stateline Speedway
Dec 21 @ 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Join us as we go back in time and take a walk through the village of Bethlehem as if it were the very first Christmas over 2000 years ago! Authentic food, activities for children, live animals, visit the shops, talk with the inn keepers, then see a live production about the night that Jesus was born. From the moment you come in you will feel as if you are apart of Bethlehem.

Stop at the first building to talk with the guard. He will explain what to expect as you visit Bethlehem, where to exchange your money for mites as well as what you can buy with your mites, and then direct you to the census taker.

Afterward when you are leaving Bethlehem, stop at the largest Giving Tree in the Northwest and pick up an ornament. Each ornament has a child in need from our local area and something they’ve requested for Christmas. Bring back your tag with the gift item to AutoSource from 9am to 7pm Monday through Saturday and they will deliver the gifts to each family or organization for Christmas. Please return gifts and tags by the final event on December 22nd.

This is a FREE non profit event benefitting local charities, organizations, and families in need. All cash proceeds from the events will be donated to CASA Court Appointed Special Advocates of North Idaho. Other charities and organizations include Spokane Children’s Hospital, Newby Ginnings, and Family Promise.

Bundle up and bring the whole family out to share the true meaning of Christmas with our community. Stop by for the interactive walk through Bethlehem between 4pm and 6pm and the production shortly after is from 6pm to around 6:30pm. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at opportunities@anightinbethlehem.info
