Palisades High School’s third annual Holiday Boutique by the Sea will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 22, at Mercer Hall on campus.
This major fundraiser supports PaliHi’s Educational Foundation, which was established in 2012 to help offset the decline in state education funding that was only partially restored last year by Proposition 30.
More than 40 vendors will display custom jewelry, unique clothing and accessories, bath and body scents, hostess gifts and home décor. Local businesses, such as Lavender Blue, will offer French linens and there will be handiwork from talented members of the school faculty. The PaliHi Booster Club will sell Dolphin wear.
“It’s a great showcase for Palisades handcrafters,” said Palisadian Debbie Lawrence, owner of Floradora, who makes hand-decorated hats and accessories.
Visit the PaliHi Dance Team and girls’ volleyball team tables and buy baked goods and coffee.
There will be raffles every hour, with prizes donated by Boutique vendors, and gourmet food trucks will be on site. “Proceeds to the Ed Fund support long-term strategic projects that will positively impact students’ education,” said Principal Dr. Pamela Magee, noting that one of the first goals is to reduce class size. Other goals include new and upgraded technology, science lab renovations, textbooks and other instructional materials.
