Holiday Hoopla 2014

Saturday, December 6th, 9:00–11:30am, Fountain Square Mall

Every year, Girls Inc. is pleased to host Holiday Hoopla, a truly special event that involves the whole community. We warmly invite you and your family to join us in ringing in the holiday season with this joyous, family-oriented event on December 6th, from 9:00–11:30am, at the Fountain Square Mall.

Highlights of this year’s event include:

 Breakfast – Pancake breakfast provided by BuffaLouie's Catering to celebrate the holidays in a fun, family-friendly way.

 Boutique – A shopping area with "kid-friendly" pricing where children can purchase affordable gifts for family.

 Entertainment – A lineup of local musicians will provide the soundtrack for our event.

 Gingerbread Houses -- With generous support from the Bloomington Cooking School, kids will have the opportunity to decorate their own gingerbread houses to take home.

 Raffle – With your raffle ticket purchase, you will be entered to win many exciting prizes from Spaah!, Upland Brewing Company, IU Auditorium, Bloomington Country Club, Touchstone Wellness, Marengo Cave, Big Splash Adventure, Holiday World, WonderLab, Eagle Pointe Golf Report, Noodles & Company, Optiks, Thirty-One/Becky Connor, Shedd Aquarium, Harry and Izzy's, The Children's Museum, and more!

Crafts – There will be craft tables where children can make fun holiday art.

Sponsor the event
– Many individuals and businesses choose to get involved with Holiday Hoopla by becoming sponsors. Our wish is for Holiday Hoopla to be accessible to all families at Girls Inc. and in our community, but there are some who cannot afford the ticket price. A $50 donation will provide an entire family with a hot breakfast, “Snow Bucks” to use in the boutique, and an opportunity to enjoy free music and fun crafts. Your sponsorship gift of $150, in addition to providing tickets for three families to attend, comes with extra benefits this year. Please take a look at our  sponsorship form for more information on these and other giving opportunities.

We hope that you will be able to attend Holiday Hoopla and join with our families in celebrating the holiday season. If you would like to attend, tickets will be available at the door for $5. If you would like to sponsor a family or a table, you can do so securely online, or by printing a sponsorship gift form and returning it to Girls Inc. so that we can contact the sponsorship recipients.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you on December 6th!
