When & Where
Creating For Causes
We design, create and execute charity events. We specialize in fun and inspiring art and craft events that benefit local charities.
We attract artists and crafters of all ages and skill levels, artists and crafters who want to enjoy camaraderie, inspiration and the joy of creating while giving back to their local communities.
We're passionate about supporting local causes and non-profit organizations and encouraging creativity. We are able to accomplish this through the generous participation and contributions of the artists and crafters who attend our events, the ongoing support of the individuals and companies who supply the products and services to these creative souls, and the tireless efforts of our wonderful volunteers.
We believe everyone can make a difference - making that difference requires only desire and action. Take action now and JOIN US!
Creating for Causes presents events that connect people and companies to local and national causes and non-profit, charity organizations. Our events provide an avenue for individuals and groups of crafters, and the companies who sell products and services to the craft market segment, to give back to their local and national communities.
Our events provide a place to share fun, creativity and inspiration with friends and fellow crafters, while simultaneously raising money for local causes and charitable organizations.
Creating for Causes designs, creates and executes events that enable participants to give back on a local level.
Whether the event supports a charity that is locally grown and operated, or the funds are directed towards the local chapter of a national or international non-profit, charity organization, our events support the local communities, local businesses and local non-profits where the events are held.
We focus on bringing creative people together to share a memorable, fun experience while helping support local charities.
