We are asking each exhibitor to bring a donated item that can be raffled off during the Exhibitor drawing on Friday. The donated item could be a basket of treats, a gift card to a common business (i.e., Target, Amazon, etc.), or an item from your store (if applicable). As our attendees visit your booth, they will need to spend at least 3 - 5 minutes talking with you before they are given a ticket for a chance to win the donated item. Tickets will be provided for your use. The more vendors attendees visit, the more chances they have to win.
