The Marquez Elementary Charter School Holiday Boutique, held on Wednesday, Dec. 16, was a success again this year, boutique chair Julia Breitman told the Palisadian-Post. School families and the community did some last-minute holiday shopping among the boutique’s 22 vendors and Friends of Marquez raised nearly $5,000 to benefit the school and students, according to Breitman.

“The boutique is a wonderful annual tradition to not only raise funds for Marquez Elementary School but also to showcase businesses and services of school families, alumni and the community. It’s a wonderful opportunity to earn money for a good cause during the holiday season,” Breitman said.
