Look for the Gimme Shelter booth at both Atomic day shows on Saturday, 12/11 and 12/12, she will have dogs on hand who are in deep need of a home for a life time. We will also have a raffle for Gimme Shelter featuring some really fabulous donated items from local businesses and from the crafters and artists in Atomic as well. The winner will be announced after the conclusion of Atomic on Monday 12/13.
Betsy Kennedy of be jewelry has been a part of Atomic since 2006 (year 1), originally as the Most Valuable Volunteer
"MVV" ever but she now sells her handcrafted silver-smithed jewelry at Atomic. Betsy creates personalized to order pendants for Manasota BUDS, the local Manasota Down Syndrome Awareness group.

Rose's Whimsical Garden will be at the Sunday, 12/12 Atomic show and she donates a percentage of her proceeds to Somaly Mam Foundation which is an organization established to help rescue children/adults that are working in brothels. Somaly Mam Foundation helps relocate people rescued to safe houses where they live and are treated if they have any medical issues, as well as educate them so that when they leave the shelter they have a skill that will help them get a job and make it hopefully, easier to rejoin society.
