Persona Of The Week: Lauren Bromberg

Each year, Craft Westport brings over 175 artisans from a variety  of genres  to town.

The 44th annual event is set for this weekend at Staples High School. It kicks off the holiday shopping season — and all funds raised by the sponsoring Westport Young Woman’s League go to local charities.

The other day, WYWL president Lauren Bromberg sat with Persona’s Rob Simmelkjaer to preview the event. They talk about WYWL’s mission, and its work in and around Westport.

(Craft Westport will be held tomorrow — Saturday, November 9 — from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, including tickets, click here.)

    The Westport Young Woman’s League is an amazing organization. It has been an integral part of our community for over 60 years, supporting Westport and surrounding towns with community service and financial donations. Attending Craft Westport is one way all community members can support them. It’s a beautiful event showcasing many uniquely crafted items. This weekend is the perfect time to get an early start on your holiday shopping. Congrats to Lauren and all the hard working young women of the WYWL who continue to put on a great event year after year!
