Holiday Fair is a charitable, non-profit, intergenerational event sponsored by Westwood Lutheran Church, St. Louis Park, MN. The time and talents of members and friends are utilized in the raising of funds to support Westwood’s mission goals of outreach within the community as well as worldwide. Holiday Fair will give granting priority to those non-profit organizations in which Westwood members/friends are significantly involved as volunteers or supporters.
