Dawn Paskalides and the Women Business Owners of Chatham (WBOC) offer a chance for Chathamites of all ages to do their Christmas shopping and help out their neighbors at the same time.
Twenty Chatham women with their own businesses will gather in Paskalides' home at 3 Karlin Dr. in the township from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday.
A percentage of proceeds from the sale will go to benefit single mothers in need in the Chathams, and to fund a $1,000 Girl EmPOWERment scholarship, which will go to a graduating senior from Chatham High School.
Paskalides has held the event in her home for several years. "To date, 33 single moms in Chatham have been helped," she said, to the tune of $35,000.
The event will also feature wine and cheese, and a relaxed and intimate environment in which to cross a few people off your holiday shopping list.
