The annual Annville-Cleona holiday craft show, held on Saturday, Nov. 13, will benefit Four Diamonds.

The mission of Four Diamonds is to conquer childhood cancer – which takes the lives of more children than any other disease – and it assists children and their families through “superior care, comprehensive support and innovative research,” according to the website. Additionally, Four Diamonds covers 100% of cancer-related medical expenses that are not covered by the insurance of eligible Four Diamonds kids.

This year’s show may hold even deeper meaning with the recent passing of Four Diamonds co-founder Charles Millard, whose presence at Four Diamonds events has been a constant source of inspiration throughout the decades.

The craft show will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Annville-Cleona High School. There will be 100 booths, Pennsylvania Farm Show milkshakes, and food for purchase in the cafeteria.

Masks should be worn in the building during the event.

There is a $1 donation to enter the holiday craft show and all of those proceeds will benefit Annville-Cleona’s Mini-THON for Four Diamonds.

Mini-THON is a fundraising effort for grades K-12, that allows students to be involved in the fight against childhood cancer. Mini-THON is modeled after THON – a 46-hour dance marathon – held annually at Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center.

For high school students, Mini-THONs conclude with a smaller-scale celebration of dancing and activities and, typically, an announcement of the amount of funds raised for Four Diamonds.
