Fundraiser to benefit Somers Congregational Church
SOMERS - posted Jan, 11 2012
Beautiful Things: Interiors & Gifts, will hold a fundraiser from Jan. 12 through 15 to benefit the Congregational Church of Somers, which had a major fire that destroyed the historical buildings façade and main building dating back to 1742. The Church is in need of money to help cover the costs of things they will not get reimbursed for from insurance, as well as contribute to the restoration and on-going operations in the community. During the four-day benefit, 40 percent of all purchases will be donated directly to the church with exception to three brands - Brighton, Chamilia and Vera Bradley - although Beautiful Things will contribute $10 for every $50 spent on these three brands. Several Vera Bradley items have been ‘red-lined’ for the fundraiser, so they are 50 percent off. Beautiful Things has also marked down many other items for the fundraiser. Another way to contribute is to drop off non-perishable food items to benefit Champs Place, a food pantry program of Somers Congregational Church. 100 percent of what is given will go to the church. Beautiful Things is located at 12 South Road in Somers and can be reached at 860-265-7855.
