​2020 Event Update
We are excited to announce, we are taking our event online! Traditionally we come together for a super fun, in-person shopping experience, however COVID-19 poses a health and safety risk, so we’re making our event this year, VIRTUAL. While there are health and safety challenges for gathering together, the needs of our area children still need to be met.

We have created a Virtual Marketplace on our website with links to our amazing vendors who will be donating 10% of their online shopping proceeds to the Cole Collection. All you have to do is visit our Marketplace, click the links and start shopping November 5-8! Add ‘The Cole Collection’ in the notes section for your purchase to count towards our fundraising efforts.

Be sure to SUBSCRIBE to our mailing list for more details and to be notified when our virtual event is about to begin!
Thank you for supporting our mission, shopping local and helping to make Christmas a little brighter for the children in the foster care system.
