Zonta Marketplace 

Folks heading over to the Brewer Auditorium got a chance to find some unique Holiday gifts Sunday. The Zonta Club held their biggest fundraiser of the year, the Zonta Marketplace.They had more than 70 vendors selling all kinds of items, including crafts, antiques, and collectibles. Plus they had a silent auction and raffles.All the money raised will support Zonta’s charities. Sharon Leavitt, President of Zonta, says one of their focuses right now, eliminating human trafficking. “We are a group of ladies that support the betterment of women and children and one of our biggest things is we advocate for women, and human trafficking is big for us right now. It’s big everywhere but people don’t seem to understand how bad it is. So we’re working towards that with our fundraising. We also give to women’s care, rape response, the shelter and we have seven scholarships that we give away.”To help raise even more money, Zonta club members spent weeks cooking and baking for Sunday’s events. They even offered homemade frozen meals.
