The Craft Heroes are Preparing for Craft Emergency!

Be Prepared for a Flood of Creativity! The St. Pete Craft Heroes in partnership with the Tampa Bay Chapter of the American Red Cross presents “A Craft Emergency” on Sunday June 1, 2008. Join us for an artistic benefit marking the first day of Hurricane Season and bringing support to the local Red Cross. Enjoy a diverse selection of fine crafts and original artworks from Florida artisans. Support local artists and local heroes at the same time! The Red Cross responds to emergencies in our community on a daily basis, from house fires to floods and educates the community on ways to be prepared for and react to emergency situations. The Red Cross will also be selling emergency items such as first aide kits and registering volunteers. Shoppers will have an opportunity to learn more about the many educational programs hosted by the Red Cross and can make monetary donations to support crises relief in the Tampa Bay area during this fun event.
