For 70 years, the women of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral have hosted a quintessential community Bazaar. It’s a mash-up of home-made baked goods, pickles, preserves & frozen foods, hand-crafted needlework, home decor and baubles to tickle your fancy, gift baskets, fresh plants, trees & garden decor, donated home furnishings & clothing, a children’s carnival, music and lunch …. yes lunch!
The Bazaar takes place every October making it a great place to stock up on Halloween treats, Thanksgiving eats, and Christmas fare for table, stockings, and under the tree.
Hosted by Trinity Cathedral’s Daughters of the Holy Cross, the Bazaar raises funds for deserving organizations in our city : 501(c)(3) organizations that provide goods and services to those in need in Columbia.
Funds raised by the 2017 Trinity Bazaar have gone to:
- Lighthouse for Life: Help open Karis House, a refuge for girls aged 12-21 who have been rescued from sex trafficking in South Carolina.
- Fresh Start Ministry of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church: Provide free laundry service, showers, HIV testing and blood pressure screenings to homeless and working-poor residents of Columbia’s Waverly neighborhood.
- Free Medical Clinic: Help purchase equipment to diagnose and treat skin disorders, including pre-cancerous lesions, onsite at The Columbia Free Medical Clinic.
- Keeping it Real Ministries: Funds to create ‘essentials’ backpacks containing clothes and toiletries for people living on the streets of Columbia. Also, funds for two events featuring a hot meal, music, worship, and inspiration.
- Growing Home Southeast: Funds will be rental subsidies for residents living at Leaphart Place, a 20-unit complex that provides housing and support services for young adults (18-28) who have aged out of the foster care system.
The 2018 Bazaar is our 70th Anniversary. Join us!
