October 09, 2013CUMMING, Ga. — Mark Roberts, the "King of Christmas" and the creator of the Fairies, Santas and Elves collection, will be at Parsons Gifts, 525 Lakeland Plaza in Cumming, on Friday, Nov. 8. He will meet with collectors from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and sign their purchases as part of his 2013 national signing tour.
Roberts has committed a significant amount of time and money over the years to charitable causes that are dear to his heart, and he will make public appearances in about nine cities around the country this year to sign his collectibles and to promote his charity designs.
One of those designs, the Fairy of Miracles, benefits the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Since the start of this program, Roberts has pledged more than $100,000. With the help of collectors, this can be even more, resulting in more money going toward lifesaving research care for sick children.
Another design, the Spirit of Hope Fairy, benefits the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Through the support of his retailers and collectors, Roberts has raised approximately $80,000 for this foundation.
