"Vendor Blender" Event to Support Charity

With the holidays right around the corner, don't miss your chance to visit the Miami Valley's favorite one-stop shopping event! Mark your calendars for the next Vendor Blender Fall Edition to be held on Sunday November 18th at the Holiday Inn in Fairborn! We are very excited to welcome Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Dayton as our benefiting charitable organization!

The Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairborn will be packed for an afternoon of fun, food, raffles, and over 50 local vendors for everyone's shopping pleasure. It's the perfect place for a ladies afternoon out! There will be something for everyone, including direct sales, unique crafters, bake shops, and even a masseuse. Snacks and refreshments, including mimosas, beer, and wine, will be available for purchase at our concessions. The event is free admission, and is open to the public from 1 PM — 5 PM.

Several local businesses will also be represented at the event with special raffle items. Tickets for the 50/50 raffle will be available at the event for $1 each or 6 tickets for $5. Attendees are encouraged to donate items to support the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Dayton. Any person that brings an item(s) off the organization's donation list will be rewarded with a special entry into one of our raffles. A list of requested and acceptable donation items can be found on the Facebook event page. Proceeds from the raffle will be donated directly to Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Dayton.

Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Dayton provides a temporary "home-away-from-home" for families of critically ill, hospitalized children and supports efforts that improve children's health within our region.

"Bring your friends, bring your mom, bring your kids, bring your spouse — just don't miss this season's biggest shop local event," said Vendor Blender organizer Shannon Whitton. "It's important to support our community's diverse small businesses and the Shop Small and Local initiatives."
