Important Update Regarding Crafters Marketplace:

Please note YWCA Princeton will not be presenting Crafters Marketplace this weekend (Nov. 18-19) as has been the tradition for so many years. We thank the many volunteers, patrons and supporters who supported this fundraiser, which enabled YWCA to award over two million dollars in scholarship through the Pearl Bates Scholarship Program over a 40+ year period. The scholarship will continue to be funded through a new initiative we are calling Benefactors for Bates. For more information, stop at our Welcome Desk or call Nancy Faherty at (609) 497-2100 Ext. 316 .
