Milligan presents 4th annual Advent Market
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, Tenn. (Dec. 1, 2015) — With the shopping frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday in the recent past, Milligan College is offering a more charitable—and less stressful—alternative to Christmas shopping with the fourth annual Advent Market on Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the lobby of Milligan’s Gregory Center.
The market, which is open to the public, will offer products including bags, jewelry, ornaments and a variety of other handmade gifts, featuring 16 local vendors. Milligan students also will be selling their crafts and creations in order to raise support for a charity or a mission opportunity.
“In sponsoring this event, our hope is to create an opportunity to support local artisans and our own students, while also providing a meaningful gift alternative to other shopping stores,” said Jason Onks, director of campus activities.
