February 20, 2016 9:00am to 5:00pm
Beads of Courage Volunteers

Are you a skilled beadmaker? Join us on Saturday, February 20, at The Studio for some beadmaking mania. From 9 am until 5 pm all ten torches in our flame shop will be fired up as beadmakers donate their time and talent to make beads for the Beads of Courage Organization. Beads of Courage helps children with serious illnesses mark milestones in their treatment through the use of beads. All beads created during the marathon will be donated to Beads of Courage.

Interested in volunteering? Beadmaking shifts range from one to three hours. Beadmakers must have previous experience equal to, at minimum, two beadmaking classes. Advanced registration is required, email us at [email protected] for more information.

Beads of Courage is a 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization dedicated to helping children with serious illness record, tell and own their stories of survival.
