The Passavant Area Hospital Auxiliary is featuring a handful of new attractions for the 60th Annual Holiday Bazaar this weekend.

Co-chair Ginny Fanning appeared on WLDS’ “What’s On Your Mind?” program this week to talk about the event, scheduled for Friday and Saturday at Passavant.

Fanning says those in attendance will have the chance to purchase the Gift of Wisdom Thought Wheel.

“The theme this year is Gifts Abound and we realized that for all the gifts in our community, there is a lot of wisdom out there. We have complied a day to day wheel that people can purchase. There will be a quote for whomever the quote is speaking of and whoever contributed it.”

Fanning thanked the community for pitching in to feature 16 different packages in the raffle.

“One of them is a thousand dollars and I think everyone will want to put their name in the bucket for that. There are several hand made items, an antique cradle, a child’s table set, some golf clubs, beautiful jewelry and really something for everybody. You can buy as many tickets as you want for whatever package you want.”

The cost per raffle ticket is a dollar a piece. All the proceeds will go towards purchasing a new stress echocardiography system for the hospital.

Traditional Bazaar favorites, including Breakfast with Santa and the Holiday Luncheon will take place on Saturday.

The Bazaar will be open from 3-6 p.m. on Friday and 10-3 p.m. on Saturday.
