Feb. 5, 2013 - PRLog -- (SAVANNAH, GA) – Featuring twenty handpicked national vendors offering shoppers a wide array of upscale items, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church (http://stpeterssav.org/) on Skidaway Island in Savannah will host its second annual Market at 3 West Ridge on February 19 and 20. The unique merchandise for sale will include clothing, jewelry, housewares, culinary items, art and personal gifts, with gorgeous flowering plants also available for special order.

According to show co-chair Sharon Grozine, “We are really quite excited about The Market at 3 West Ridge this year. Our vendors have been carefully selected and vetted to ensure that we offer our customers a premiere shopping experience. You just can’t get much of the merchandise that will be offered at our show unless you travel out of state.”

The Market at 3 West Ridge will run from 10 am to 8 pm on Tuesday, February 19 and from 10 am to 4 pm on Wednesday, February 20. A $5 charitable door admission will be valid for both show days. Shoppers can enjoy tasty food mini-morsels donated by area restaurateurs and caterers throughout the day, and complimentary wine from 5pm to close on Tuesday. Free parking will be available to all Market visitors.

All of The Market at 3 West Ridge door admission proceeds and a generous portion of the merchandise sales proceeds will be donated to two local charities: Horizons Savannah (http://www.horizonssavannah.org/) and Park Place Outreach (http://parkplaceyes.org/). Horizons Savannah (http://www.horizonssavannah.org/) provides students from low-income families an academic, cultural, and recreational program designed to help close the achievement gap by preventing summer learning loss and encouraging academic growth. Park Place Outreach (http://parkplaceyes.org/) provides services to at-risk youth and their families, with the goal of increasing their functional level and achieving family reunification whenever possible. Funds from the market sales will provide Horizons Savannah with classroom teachers, materials and enrichment experiences such as field trips and swimming lessons for 130 students next summer.

“Last year our show benefited one charity, The Interfaith Hospitality Network,” explains Patty Frothingham, show co-chair. “Our Steering Committee decided that due to last year’s overwhelming success, we wanted to support two charities this year. So we carefully analyzed which two would benefit the most from our support, and we chose Horizons and Park Place, because these organizations provide vital assistance to Savannah’s neediest and most deserving children.”

Horizons Savannah executive director Christy Edwards says, “We are so grateful to St. Peter's for their generous gift to Horizons through their Market at 3 West Ridge event. This is a really fun and unique way to show how much you care for the well-being of kids right here in Savannah by coming out and shopping. We are so honored to be a part of this event.”
