Ready, set, shop...
The 10th Annual Shopping for a Cause FUNdraiser will visit Fredericksburg Friday and Saturday, Sept. 13-14.
Friday will be the preview parties at participating stores with the stores open until about 7-8 p.m.
Saturday will be the tournament day with an 8:30 a.m. Tee Time Breakfast at the Nimitz Ballroom, located on Main Street.
Then, at 10 a.m. Saturday, the shopping begins with a shotgun start at participating stores.
There will be three drop-off stations downtown.
The event supports the Boys & Girls Club of Fredericksburg, whereby teams of up to four shoppers shop at participating stores on Main Street and receive prizes based on the amount of money spent, team spirit/costumes (costumes are encouraged) and the amount directly donated to the Boys & Girls Club.
The club provides a safe environment for kids and teens of both genders to learn and grow while having fun.
“Those in the club are instilled with a sense of belonging, a sense of usefulness, a sense of influence and a sense of competence,” according to a spokesman for the club.
