Hanford High School’s Podcast and Video Production Club is fundraising for their upcoming trips with their second annual Holiday Bazaar. The event is Saturday at HHS from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
RICHLAND, Wash. — Looking for a place for a Christmas shopping spree? More than 100 booths and vendors will line the halls of Hanford High School Saturday. They will be set up all the way from the south entrance, through the commons, past the north entrance and into the Eyrie Gym. The Holiday Bazaar was started by Hanford’s Podcast and Video Production Club, to raise money for their competitions.
We’re talking, lots and lots of booths on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free.
“They like to go to competitions and unfortunately, none of those competitions happen around here. So it can be expensive,” said broadcast teacher Cheyenne LaViolette.
Fundraising for HHS Podcast and Video Production Club
The fundraising is for the students that maybe wouldn’t have the opportunity to go, according to LaViolette.
“Some of the kids that are planning on going to the convention in March, they’re like, ‘I’ve never been on a plane before, this gonna be my first time on a plane,’ and there are definitely some students with great financial need and so it’s nice to be able to give them the opportunity,” said LaViolette.
She said the club went to New York this year. They plan to go to Long Beach in the Spring for the Student Television Network Convention.
At the Bazaar, alongside many different booths, numerous Hanford clubs, like the Falcon Fever Dance Team and the Me-to-We Club will be vending.
According to LaViolette, there will be more than 100 booths, with a bunch of handmade, hand sewn or crocheted items, freeze-dried candy, handcrafted dog treats, crystals and jewelry, as well as commercial vendors like Scentsy.
A student from Richland High, and another from Hanford High will also have booths at the Bazaar. LaViolette said there will be some small children who handcrafted items that will be there too.
This is their third Bazaar in two years, because the first one last winter ended up being so popular. Last year, there were just more than 50 vendors. It has since doubled.
