Support Lake Cares Food Pantry While Getting your Holiday Shopping Done!

Mount Dora, FL – November 17th through 19th, 2016

Lake Cares loves to get eveyone into the holiday spirit and the best way we know how to do that is to open the doors and "Celebrate the Season" Candy Land style. Join us in downtown Mount Dora, November 17 - 19 at the Donnelly Park Pavilion, doors open all three days at 10:00 am. There will be several different types of holiday decorations for sale. Attendees will find great deals on decorated wreaths and trees, and a myriad of other holiday decorations. There will also be several vendors set up with beautiful jewelry, handmade items, gift baskets and unique decor items. Our very own "Volunteer Elves" will be selling their favorite holiday baked items, ready to take to all your holiday gatherings.

Lake Cares Food Pantry provides food and other neccessary items directly to the people of Lake County Florida who are in need of assistance. "Celebrate the Season" is one of the fund raising events we hold every year to create awareness for our organization while at the same time kicking off the holiday season. This year marks the 3rd Annual event and holding it before the holiday season officially begins will give people the opportunity to cross holiday gift items off their lists early, while supporting our fund raising efforts.
