Our 14th Annual Gingerbread Festival will be held on Saturday, December 3, 2016 at Tracy Hall in Norwich, Vermont. We are reaching out to new and past Gingerbread House Makers in hopes that you will help us make our signature fundraiser a fantastic success!
Houses must to be delivered to the Tracy Hall in Norwich on Friday, December 2nd, between 10 A.M. and 3 P.M., unless other arrangements are made. Please call 802-649-3268 or email Gingerbread@the-family-place.org with any questions. To download the donation form, please visit our website.
Last year we welcomed over 1,200 visitors to view and bid on 80+ houses donated by members of our community. Funds raised through Business Sponsorships, Gingerbread Silent Auction, Store, Café and festival entrance fees – all of which topped $75,000 in 2015 – are used to benefit the work we do here at The Family Place. Services offered by The Family Place range from support for pregnant and parenting teenagers; developmental therapy for children ages 0-3; in-home support for families struggling with economic stress; a Child Advocacy Center for victims of childhood sexual abuse; and child care financial assistance.
