Eighteen Ninety Event Space Teams Up with
Platte County Treasure Chest to Restock Pantry
Platte City, MO. - The Eighteen Ninety Event Space is teaming up with the Platte County Treasure Chest to help restock their food supply. On Thursday December 14, 2017 Eighteen Ninety will host a Holiday Market and Open House from 6-9 p.m. at the venue on Highway 92 Spur. The Market was created to offer a unique shopping experience to Platte County residents with over 30 different vendors, including direct sales companies as well as local and regional artist and crafters. During the Market, tickets will be on sale for the upcoming Secret Santa Workshop with a discount that is being offered for those who bring in canned goods. The Treasure Chest’s pantry is currently very low at a time of year when families may need them most.
Tickets to the Secret Santa Workshop, to be held on December 19th - 21st, are currently selling for $18/person plus tax. If you purchase your tickets during the Holiday Market and Open House on Thursday December 14th, and bring along up to 4 canned goods, discounts of up to $2 off will be issued for each ticket, bringing the ticket price to $16/person. Each canned good is worth 50 cents off the ticket price, with a maximum of $2 discount per ticket.
The Secret Santa Workshop (Dec. 19-21) is a fun way for kids of all ages to enjoy the holiday spirit, get their pictures taken with Santa Claus, and write a letter to Santa with their holiday wishes. A hot coco garden, popcorn stand, and the making of holiday crafts are just some of the special activities happening at the Workshop. Visitors will be treated to a performance by The Sugar Plum Fairy from the Heart of America Youth Ballet as well.
The Platte County Treasure Chest is a resource center providing food, clothing, toiletries, and other home supplies to PCR-3 students and families in need and is the result of program evaluations completed by the district Social Workers, identifying a greater need for resources designated for the whole family, beyond the child seen every day in school.
“We heard there was a need for food for the pantry so we wanted to help out immediately,” stated Eighteen Ninety’s Business Manager. “Since the Secret Santa Workshop is for area families, we thought this was just one more way we could support anyone in Platte County who has a need for the services of the Treasure Chest.”
