What started as a tiny 2-day event in one room of the Sea Gull Cottage 24 years ago has grown to be a primary funding for the outreach program of the Chapel. Annually over 200 members and friends of the Chapel contribute donations of time, financial support, fine wines, estate jewelry, designer fashions, beautiful Christmas trees and centerpieces, antiques, and other collectables. These donations, in addition to the merchandise purchased at the wholesale markets, make the Chapel Christmas Boutique a very exciting place to purchase unique and fun Christmas gifts.
The Boutique offers everyone a chance to shop compassionately. More importantly every dollar after expenses is donated to help the needy in our neighborhoods and give college scholarship grants to deserving students.
The annual Christmas Gift Boutique has contributed back to the Chapel a total of $2,000,000.00 over the last 24 years, all of which has been earmarked for the Chapel Scholarship Program and the Chapel Benevolence Program.
