Astor’s Holiday Season Begins with an Evening of Good Cheer

Astor held the Fourth Annual Sugar Plum Preview on Friday, December 4, 2009. Astor staff and friends kicked off the Holiday season with a performance by the children’s choir, followed by the chance to shop early at our annual St. Nick’s Craft Fair!

In addition to the festivities, Suger Plum attendees entered raffles and took part in a good-natured competition with our new “Christmas Jewels” contest! The person with the most “jewels” at the end of the night won a very special handcrafted toy chest made by an Astor staff member.

Our first-ever winner of the Christmas Jewels contest was Marilyn Dancy, a longtime Astor friend. Congratulations to Marilyn and many thanks to all who participated!
