The Hunt, Leiper’s Fork first ever antique, artisan and mercantile fundraiser, will take place June 8-10.
The event supports Friends of the Fork, Inc. a nonprofit organization, which assists individuals and families within the local and surrounding communities during difficult times.
The inaugural event begins with a Sneak Peek on Thursday, June 8th 4-8p and continues on Friday and Saturday, 9a-5p and ends Sunday, 10a-3p at the Pow Wow field on Old Hillsboro Road next to Floyd Road. Shoppers can expect some of the best antique, artisan and mercantile vendors in the South. Admission is $25 to the Thursday Sneak Peek event and $5 for Friday-Sunday.
“We’re really excited about bringing this caliber of a show to the village. Leiper’s Fork has a huge following of folks that love to come out, support our events and visit our community. What’s even better, they’re giving back to a community that hasn’t always been what it is today – meaning, we still have some local folks that struggle. They may live next door to a celebrity, but putting food on the table for their family, buying school clothes or paying the electric bill is tough – especially if it’s due to health reasons, disability or loss of a job. Last summer, due to a fire, one family almost lost their entire home. We, along with the rest of the community, were able to come in and help them renovate what was left,” said Joe Waddell, event organizer, and Friends of the Fork Board member.
Friends of the Fork, Inc. raises money through sponsorships, vendor fees and admission enables the non-profit to continue to provide struggling families with everyday needs, like above, or kids with presents at Christmas.
