November 27, 2012 (BEND, OR) – Santa will be returning to Southwest Bend this season as part of the annual Holiday Party at C.E. Lovejoy’s Brookswood Market on Saturday, December 8th from 3:00 – 6:00pm. Photos with Santa are free for those who attend and would like to put their gift requests in with Saint Nicholas, and members of the Summit High School Choir will be carolling throughout the store. The String Rats, a local alternative country trio will be adding to the mood by playing holiday favorite tunes as well. Many local food and beverage vendors will be at the party providing samples of their delicacies and the store will be stocked with unique gift ideas to help with the holiday shopping crunch. Everyone living in or visiting the Bend community is welcome to join in the festive fun!
“This is one of our community’s favorite events of the year,” said Lovejoy’s Manager Diana Franko. “We will have Christmas Trees for sale, a free craft for kids and great holiday gift and food options in all of our departments. On the food side, we offer a wide range of deli trays, wines, meats, cheeses, and sweet treats to complement any gathering. Some of our other simple and unique gift items include kitchen gadgets, locally made soaps, clothing accessories, lottery tickets, and Oregon Sno-Park Permits. We have gift cards for many major retailers as well. There is a little something for everyone really.”
In the spirit of the season, and throughout December, shoppers are also invited to participate in Lovejoy’s Help Fight Hunger campaign, which will benefit the Bethlehem Inn with donations of bags of groceries. Each $10 cash donation at the register is matched by the Market with a total of $20 worth of food items being be delivered to Bethlehem Inn after the holidays. Over 50 bags were collected as part of last year’s Help Fight Hunger campaign.
