Residents at the Golden Living Center in Charlottesville did their holiday shopping right at home on Sunday.

It was their annual craft bazaar where residents' families and members of the community stopped by to take a look at all kinds of arts and crafts by 16 local vendors.

It's been going on for 25 years and each year the bazaar creates a new tradition for a resident and their family. But each year, it's also for a great cause.

"It's great. They pick the charity at the beginning of the year and then any fundraising they do, that money will go towards the Ronald McDonald House. So, this year that's their fundraiser," said Margaret Thacker, the recreation coordinator at Golden Living.

Around a hundred people went through the living center for the craft fair and the proceeds will go to the Charlottesville Ronald McDonald House.
