Big Creek Arts and Crafts Fair organizer Judy Lee said the ninth annual festival likely will be the biggest yet.

Scheduled for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, the fair benefits two of First Redeemer Church’s missions programs.

Lee, the wife of Pastor Richard Lee, said all proceeds from entrance fees and a silent auction will go to the south Forsyth church’s There’s Hope for the Hungry and Whispering Hope programs.

Lee said Whispering Hope is a local pregnancy crisis resource center that recently came under First Redeemer’s management.

There’s Hope for the Hungry helps get food to those in need.

“In these days and times, there are a lot of people out of work who need food for their families,” Lee said.

Up for bid at the silent auction are gift baskets full of sports memorabilia and event tickets, as well as many other items.

In addition, this year’s fair will feature 85 vendors, selling everything from jewelry to children’s books. Lee said there’s “something for all ages.”

There will be door prizes given out every 15 minutes.

“If you’re there, you’re probably going to get a prize,” Lee said.
