Holiday Shopping with a Cause at Vermont Adaptive’s Fundraising Event at Mr. Twitter’s, Dec. 9.  Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, the largest year-round disabled sports non-profit organization in Vermont, will host an after-hours fundraiser at Mr. Twitter’s in Rutland on Thursday, Dec. 9 from 5:30 – 8 p.m. Attendees will receive 10 percent off all purchases during the event and, in turn, the owners of Mr. Twitter’s will donate 10 percent of all sales during the fundraiser to Vermont Adaptive. Hors d’oeuvres, door prizes and a raffle will add to the festivities.

“We are fortunate that so many local businesses partner with us to create these fun fundraising opportunities,” said Erin Fernandez, executive director of Vermont Adaptive. “Thanks go out to Mr. Twitter’s for their generous donation from sales as well. It should be a great evening and a fun way to accomplish some holiday shopping at the same time!”

Mr. Twitter’s will be raffling off a decorative music box in the shape of an old-fashioned television complete with rabbit ears, with the drawing for the music box slated for Dec. 23. Door prizes will be given away approximately every 15 minutes. In addition to the hors d’oeuvres, beverages will be served or guests may bring their own.
