“Friends of the Shores” to hold Pop-Up on May 1 with all proceeds going to local charities.

April 26, 2021

“Friends of the Shores” is a group of women who have come together to help local charities. Last August they had a sale which raised over $13,000. This Saturday, May 1, they are having their first pop-up in Chesterton. We had the opportunity to ask them a few questions. You can read a little bit about them (and this Saturday’s pop up) right here!

What is the name of your organization?
We are The Friends of Beverly Shores (or Friends of the Shores) a non-profit and 100% volunteer organization. 

What is your organization’s goal?
Our goal is helping neighbors and local organizations in need of support.  Our saying is “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to far, go with FRIENDS” 

When & Where is your next pop up event?
Our next POP-UP BENEVOLENT BAZAAR will be on Saturday May 1st from 9-3 at 10 Brown Avenue, Suite 3, in Chesterton IN 46304.  We are thankful for the support and generous donations from the local shore committees.  So many donations were coming in, we rented a 5000 sq. foot warehouse in Chesterton and it’s full!!  We will continue to do POP-UP sales once a month at the warehouse.
