I would like to inform you about the IWK upcoming event and a major fundraiser, Kermesse Fun Fair. The problem is, I only have their brochure, website info and no personal input, even though I am a (very) new member of the Auxiliary. So, here is my copy-paste public announcement with my italicized personal comments.
Kermesse is a Flemish word (had to look it up, means Belgian Dutch) for “Fun Fair”. It’s the IWK Auxiliary second largest fundraising project. (It is relevant to us, knitters, because it provides funding for The Period of PURPLE Crying campaign that we are supporting with our purple newborn hats.)

Well, I plan to attend and bring my kids. And if I have time to snap some pictures (because Kermesse features lots of play activities for the children, home-made baked goods and candy) there will be a photo follow-up.
