Canyon Crest Academy’s Girls Basketball Team to hold first Annual Holiday Bazaar

Find your best holiday gifts at Canyon Crest Academy’s First Annual Ravens Holiday Bazaar to benefit the girls’ basketball team. It will be held in the CCA Gymnasium from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 2. The event is open to the public and attendance is free.

Vendors will offer a wide variety of goods – jewelry, home goods, apparel, handbags, stained glass art, chefs’ wares, candles, and more — to fill all of your holiday shopping needs. The bazaar will also feature exciting opportunity drawings throughout the day.

The Ravens team depends on a variety of fundraising means, from rummage sales to selling team sweatshirts, to support their team. Mike Ramel, new head coach of the Ravens notes, “Unfortunately when it comes to the school budget, extracurriculars always take the biggest hit.  The lessons learned from participation in athletics have the same or greater value to a student’s life as classroom lessons.  The girl on my team aspiring to be a doctor excels in biology class, and she also learns how to meet deadlines, perform under pressure, and work with a team through participation in athletics.  The players have spearheaded the fundraising efforts in order to meet our budgetary needs as a program, and this great event is just one example of their hard work coming together.”

All proceeds will directly benefit the program and be used to pay for officials, trainers and staff at games, provide transportation, pay for tournaments and additional coaching, and purchase necessary equipment and new uniforms.

The mission of the Ravens Girls’ Basketball Team is to use basketball to teach life lessons, transforming players in successful leaders now and in the future. The Ravens are taught time management, communication, setting and achieving goals, decision making under pressure and working as a team; all of which are abilities that will spill over into their life beyond the program.

Vendors interested in participating in the bazaar should call Mike Ramel at (845) 649-4193.

The Canyon Crest Academy, Gymnasium is located at 5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, 92130. The event is free and open to the public.
