The Resource Center is seeking vendors for its annual Holiday Shopping Extravaganza, which will benefit the Marine Toys for Tots drive.

The event will be held Saturday, December 7, in The Resource Center’s administrative office building at 200 Dunham Avenue in Celoron. Vendor setup will begin at 8:30 a.m., with the Holiday Shopping Extravaganza running from 10:00 to 3:00.

Vendors interested in participating in this event can reserve a single space with a 6-foot table and chairs for $20. A double space is available for $30. To avoid having a situation in which several direct-sales vendors are selling items from the same line, only one vendor of each brand will be accepted.

Organizers ask that all vendors contribute an item for the Chinese auction that will be held during the event.

Money raised through the Holiday Shopping Extravaganza will go to Toys for Tots. This marks the 19th straight year that The Resource Center has coordinated the Marine Toys for Tots drive in Chautauqua County, and the past few years TRC has been supported by Chautauqua Connections, Inc., and the Chautauqua Connections Children’s Coalition. Thanks to the generosity of area residents and local businesses, the Toys for Tots drive each year is able to make the holidays merrier for more than 3,000 children in our community.

For more information about the Holiday Shopping Extravaganza or to reserve a spot at the event, phone Evelyn Wright-Kegelmyer at 661-1429.
