Women In Bloom To Hold Third Annual Holiday Shopping Expo in Valpo

November 13, 2017

Head to the Porter County Expo Center on Thursday, November 16 to kick off the holidays! Women in Bloom, a non profit organization that empowers girls and women to achieve strength, independence and purpose, will be holding their third annual holiday shopping expo and fundraiser. The event runs from 4pm-7:30 pm.

What can you expect? Music, food, shopping and drinks — all to fund four $500 scholarships. This is your way to get out and shop to help support female veterans, young female careerists, and under-resourced women. 70 vendors are currently slated for this year, including everything from acupuncture to holiday mugs.

The holiday expo attendees are influential business women from various companies throughout the area. A donation is a perfect opportunity for you to build goodwill in the minds of these professional women and create additional traffic to your business.
