Winterfest Dec. 2022
Winterfest is Soap Lakes annual Christmas event, always the first Saturday in December. It includes shopping, Turkey Bingo, Library Book Sale, free Cocoa and Cookies from the Nursing Home residents, canned food drive for the food bank, Carolers, a Christmas play at the Theater, a music program from the school and best of all..... Santa arrives on a big Fire Truck.... with presents FOR EVERY CHILD!!
The event is planned and organized by the Chamber and funded by the City's tourism funds, but the presents can only be "donated" by outside efforts as these cannot be purchased with public funds. We make it our mission at The Fabric Patch to purchase and wrap 500 brand new gifts for all five of the age groups to ensure EVERY child gets a special gift from Santa. We also have a basket for Mrs. Clause filled with new hats and gloves in case she wants to hand those out as she sees the need.
We really appreciate our generous friends that seize the opportunity to help us in our benevolent endeavors. If you'd like to contribute to this event, our goal is to add $2400 to this fund. Any excess will stay in the fund for next year (it takes about $3200 each year). Every donation via the button below will be rewarded with a "ticket" that goes into our drawing for a "Best of Soap Lake Basket". Santa will draw the winning ticket after he is done with his gifting duties on December 3rd. We will post the winner here, and a short Winterfest video on our YouTube page. Go check it out after the 3rd... here is the video from 2021.
Thanks for hanging out with us, thank you so much for your donations and have a VERY Merry Christmas!!
