Connor’s Corner for a Cause We are happy to have a very special vendor booth at our Incredible sale: “Connor’sCorner”—Hand-crafted for a Cause. Ten-year-old Connor works hard to support CureSearch – which funds research into children’s cancer.
Connor is a normal 10-year old boy, active in sports, a huge Trail Blazer fan, except that he has had brain cancer since he was four years old. He's on his third round of chemo. He understands his situation, and that little information about his cancer is known because research into childhood cancers is underfunded. He wants to fix that and has been raising money for CureSearch for several years. Three of those years he was the top fundraiser for the Portland area. He is going for four!
Help Connor reach his goal by purchasing some of the wonderful items that Connor, his family, and friends have created. In the past, some of the great items that Connor offered for sale were aromatherapy pillows, flax-filled eye pillows, bean bags for kid’s play, hand-knit items, and bluebird boxes! Wow! Stop by "Connor's Corner" and find out what incredible creations Connor will be offering this year. All proceeds from "Connor's Corner" go to CureSearch for pediatric cancer research.
