The Feathered Nest hosts fundraiser for Boys & Girls Clubs
The Feathered Nest celebrated their 25th Annual Holiday Open House recently and a portion of all proceeds was donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County.
The store was packed with people who attended the Wine & Cheese Fundraiser and with people looking for unique handpicked gift items and holiday décor. Gourmet food samples and sipping cider were also available.
Owners Diana Evans and Lisa Floyd, longtime supporters of the Boys & Girls Clubs, were thrilled with the amount of public participation. They were able to secure several new unwrapped culinary items like a blender, mixing bowls and utensils for the Boys & Girls Clubs’ culinary program at the new Teen Center in Fort Pierce, in addition to the monetary donation.
“We appreciate the community support as this organization is near and dear to our hearts. We got so many donations for the teen’s culinary room and can’t wait to hear about the teen’s first Thanksgiving Day meal,” stated Floyd.
Thanks to the generosity of The Feathered Nest and the outpouring from the community, the Teen Center Club members will host their very own Thanksgiving feast on Nov. 18, 2017. They will prepare all of the traditional foods and share a special meal together.
Family owned and operated since 1992, The Feathered Nest is located at 1203 W. Midway Road, in Fort Pierce. The shop boasts a huge variety of jewelry, gift items and home décor. They also make custom gift baskets for any occasion.
