Wrap up your Christmas shopping all in one place with the 7th annual One Stop Christmas Show at Quattro Hotel and Conference Centre. 

There will be over 50 vendors selling their products, along with a silent auction portion of the event. 

“All of the money that we raise will go towards buying Christmas presents for families that are in the Sault Area Hospital NICU at Christmas time,” said event coordinator Amanda Johnston. “This year, we added on the Twinkie Foundation as well to help out sick children and their families.”

The Christmas show will start at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 28 and run until 4 p.m.

“We always have a really wonderful turnout and people here love supporting others,” Johnston said. “My daughter was born prematurely and I had to spend six months in the hospital, and during Christmas, so I know what it feels like to be alone and without your family during that time. We want to show people that there is someone out there who cares and understands what they’re going through.”

Some of the products that will be available at the event include bath bombs, soaps, artwork, baking, wooden signs, wreaths and more. 

“Basically any kind of Christmas shopping that you can think of, it’s all going to be there,” Johnston said. 

“I’m excited to hopefully see everyone out shopping and supporting the event,” she said. 

Entrance to the One Stop Christmas Show will be by donation, and proof of vaccination will be required at the door.
