Shop for a cause from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 2 at the St. Margaret’s school auditorium, 205 Hickory Ave. This “Ladies Shopping Night” event is to feature local vendors, jewelers and more offering holiday gift ideas. The $10 donation requested at the door and 20 percent of vendors’ receipts will go to The The Matthews Foundation, an organization started in 2008 by two local families whose children are fighting Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The foundation provides financial assistance to deal with the burden of financial hardship during the initial treatment phase. It also also provides information about resources and support services available to patients and families of patients. For more information or to donate, visit www.matthewsfoundation.org.
