family and friends. We will also be advertising in local newspapers and posting
flyers in local businesses throughout the city. We are expecting a large turnout for

Each vendor will be charged a $15.00 non-refundable commitment fee (a
$25.00 non-refundable commitment fee applies after October 4, 2004).
Rather than charge a large table fee, we are asking that you donate a
percentage of your gross sales to our organization. We are hoping that this
arrangement will be beneficial to both the Boosters and vendors. On the
attached application, you will be asked to state the percentage of sales that
you will be donating to us. If your company has a set fundraiser, please
detail what you will be offering our organization. PLEASE BE SPECIFIC.
We will be offering you the chance to donate a small door prize for a
drawing. The item does not have to be of any great amount, just an item of
your choice to represent your products. Part of the items donated will be
raffled the day of the Bazaar, the rest will be raffled at future fine arts
events. If you would like to leave a business card and/or catalog with your
donated item they will be given to the winner of your item.
