The Athens Art Guild will also run a raffle to raise funds for primary and secondary education art teachers. The funds raised from the raffle and other fundraisers throughout the year enable AAG to purchase art supplies for the teachers who are awarded the scholarship. New teachers are chosen each year via an application process.
Food vendors found inside and outside of the venue during the Holiday Shoppe will be Holy Guacamole, A-Town Pies and Fries, and Herbal Sage Tea Company.
