It’s the most wonderful night of the year — Sara Murray, owner of Fancy That!, has participated and sponsored a musician in her store during Acker Night for most of the 16 years she has been open in Prescott.
This year will be the fourth year Sara has donated scarves to be sold on Acker Night. She has ordered 1,500 tartan plaid scarves. They feel like a really nice cashmere scarf.
The shop collects a $10 donation for each scarf and all the money will go to the Acker scholarships. The fundraiser will bring in $15,000. That is her goal for 2018.
Her vision again is to have everyone wandering around downtown wearing the same plaid scarf showing they have supported the Acker event.
Sara felt like there was something more that could be done for raising money for the scholarships as well as giving something to the public for attending.
So it was good for all — last year the shop sold out the 1,000 scarves and collected over $10,000. Sara hopes to see people sporting last year’s scarves, as well as wanting to donate again to have a 2018 scarf.
Scarves will go on sale starting at noon on Acker Friday, Dec. 7, at both locations: Fancy That! 124 S. Granite and Fancy That! Home & Holiday Store 109 S. Granite. Just a skip across the street; across to and next to the downtown parking garage on Granite Street. They will also be available during the Acker event up on the square at the Acker information booth. Fancy That! will host musicians at both locations and, of course, the popular bonfire with complimentary s’mores. This is the shop’s favorite night of the year and it’s all for a good cause!
Santa will also be available at Fancy That’s! The Home And Holiday Store for free pictures during the Acker event.
