Since 2006, The Handmaidens have been raising money for local charities at The Handmade Market. Several of our very talented artists donate their beautiful handmade wares and we assemble them into raffle baskets. Tickets for a chance to win are $3.00 for one ticket or $5.00 for two tickets. 100% of the proceeds go to the charity at each event.
For our November 2017 event we are proud to support El Pueblo
El Pueblo’s mission is for Latinos to achieve positive social change by building consciousness, capacity, and community action. El Pueblo envisions a just and equal community where all are respected, valued, and engaged. This amazing group of staff and volunteers value advocacy, leadership development, cultural celebration and exchange, collaboration, social justice and transparency.
