Kidz Club to host Holiday Market Fair and charity event

TAMPA PALMS — Kidz Club, New Tampa's drop-in interactive parent/child play center, will host a Holiday Market Fair from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday.

The fair will benefit Feeding America and the Children's Cancer Center. The two-hour event will showcase local women-run businesses that sell handmade items. Each vendor will donate goods and services for raffles at each of their tables and have items for sale.

Admission is free. Additional raffle tickets can be obtained from donated canned goods and cash purchase.

"As a woman business owner, I understand the struggles faced with owning a business, and I wanted to have a way to bring attention to my business, as well as offer a great opportunity for other businesswomen who may not have access to do free events," said Lara Slatniske, Kidz Club proprietor. "My vision for this event is for the shopper to feel like they can't find these items just anywhere. A lot of these vendors are just starting out, and I want to make a difference."

The businesses participating in this one-day event are all local and run by women. So far, they include: the Beading Dr. and Lori's Handmade Jewelry, which caters to adults; Osterman Artworks Pencil Portraits; Basic Black Collection, which sells men's, women's and children's fashions as well as handmade jewelry and accessories; Paisley Pineapple; Sweet Whimsey; Chiquitos Creations; JuJu Bee Creations; Little Gurus; the Purple Hippo; LuLuBelle & Creative Size Dividers, which specialize in custom children's clothing, hair accessories, jewelry, custom paintings, and other children's items; Artfully Designed, which creates decorative lighted special-occasion boxes; Brenda Darnley Martin, author of The Treasure Hunt Fish books; and Little Cakes by Jen. I Need a Cookie and Nana's Cookie Jar will be on hand to sell baked goods, and OMG What's Happening to Me, will help parents of adolescent girls.

Links to some vendors are on the Holiday Market page of the Kidz Club Web site: kidz-club online.com/vendornight.htm.

Kidz Club is at 15315 Amberly Drive, Tampa, FL 33647, next to Lifestyle Family Fitness in Tampa Palms.
