Students will be singing holiday songs during the shopping!  We are looking for students or adults to sell their crafts/home made items during the event too.  If you or anyone you know (they don’t have to be Ivy Hill families) have a craft to sell please contact Katie Hacias at Katie.hacias@hotmail.com or 847-987-6233.
