SNPV Fundraiser Update
Approximately 5,400 shoppers attended this year’s Santa's North Pole Village Craft Sale. This was a significant increase in attendance over 2014 and certainly helps us to raise funds to support the arts and culture in the northern metro area. We deeply appreciate our 2017 event sponsors: AgVision, Cumulus Media, and Pulse 101.7 FM,
