As a result of money raised at the Fair, St. David’s Church awarded the St. James School with funds to help build their 7th grade classroom. In addition, Fair booths including Second Hand Rose, the popular resale clothing shop as well as House of David with exclusive high-end designer clothing , donated their goods to local charities and families in need.
