Balloon Crew event today

The Balloon Crew Walk MS Team will hold a basket raffle fundraiser at The Holiday Craft and Gift Show today at the Chautauqua County Fairgrounds. This is the second year that the Balloon Crew will fundraise at the craft show. There will be many theme baskets to choose from, including fall, Thanksgiving, Christmas, movie night, shower and bath, coffee and kitchen, candles, snacks, and more. The craft show will run from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

The Balloon Crew Walk MS Team is a friends and family team, sponsored by The Paper Factory. Last year, they were one of the top 50 fundraising teams in upstate N.Y., raising $5,306 for the National MS Society. The team holds a number of fundraisers throughout the year. The Northern Chautauqua Walk MS is held in May.

The Holiday Craft and Gift Show will feature local artisans, crafts and home businesses. Lunch and refreshments will be available for purchase.
