The Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation has announced the 2023 Christmas Fantasy held at the Allamakee Fairgrounds Pavilion. This will be the 32nd annual Fantasy event the Foundation has hosted.
The theme will be “Wishing You a Merry Grinchmas.” Christmas Fantasy decorators are needed to decorate the numerous trees for display as well as donors needed for the silent auction items such as miniature trees, wall hangings, quilted items, gift baskets, centerpieces and more.
The 2023 event will be held Friday through Monday, November 10-13. Plans will again include the usual Friday night happy hour event, Saturday and Monday luncheons, Saturday night wine, cheese and dessert event and general admission on Sunday and Monday afternoons.
Christmas tree decorators are needed to decorate their artificial tree for display during the Fantasy. These tree decorators may set-up prior to the event and will then take all of their decorations and display home again following the event.
Silent Auction donors are also needed who are willing to decorate an item that will be sold on silent auction during the Fantasy.
The event is organized by the Veterans Memorial Health Care Foundation members including Craig Lensing, President; Jay Mathis, Vice President; Matt Teslow, Secretary; Nancy Schoh, Treasurer; Rose Beardmore, Sue Blagsvedt, Vicki Bloxham, Mitch Duncklee, Patty Goltz, Kevin Hanson, Dan Headington, Judy Herman, Jane Kallevang, Ardie Kuhse, Becky Mitchell, Sue Stamper, Kim Sylvester, and Kay Zimmerman.
Any decorators or donors who are willing to be a part of the 2023 “Wishing you a Merry Grinchmas” Christmas Fantasy are invited to call Erin Berns at Veterans Memorial Hospital at 568-3411, Ext. 443, to reserve a spot.
