SAGUACHE — Health Equity Action Resident Team (HEART) of Saguache and KV Estates took the lead in 2018 with the first Christmas in July FUNdraising Festival.
The purpose was to bring the community together; provide an avenue for local artists to showcase their wares and raise funds to help needy families during the December holiday times.
Christmas in July 2021 will continue that tradition on Saturday, July at 10 a.m. at Otto Mears Park.
Live music is being planned; vendors are invited to set up a tent with vendor fees — a donated item to the HEART Silent Auction Tent. Family games are being set up and although the rain clouds are welcomed, planners are hopeful that they stay away until after the FUNdraising activities end.
Christmas in July 2021 is Part 1 of a two-part plan to raise funds to create food boxes for families in December. Part 2 will happen on Saturday, Dec 4., with the Holiday Bazaar at the community building and again, sponsored by HEART and its partners.
