Richmond’s annual Bizarre Bazaar event is recognized nationally as one of the top craft shows in the country.  Every year, the night before this grand four day event begins, a charity is given the opportunity to participate and raise awareness and funds for their organization.  This year, Operations Healing Forces (OHF) has been selected.  OHF benefits the men and women in the special forces segment in every branch of the military, through therapeutic retreats.  These highly trained soldiers need our help to adjust back to their civilian lives and be combat ready to protect our country.


If you’re a regular at the Bizarre Bazaar, or a first time shopper consider attending the preview party the night before.  Your tax deductible donation will help our military elite who are sent all over the world on missions that we will most likely never hear about but are critical to our safety.  OHF soldiers have been sent to as many as 76 countries on thousands of missions.
