Vital Information for Vendors
You and your organization are invited to participate as a vendor at La Salle University’s 5th Annual Community Based Health Fair! The theme is ‘Explore Your Health’ and is scheduled for Saturday, October 8, 2016 from 12:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Shoppes at La Salle (located at 5301 Chew Avenue.) If you accept our invitation to participate, and we hope you will, we request that you arrive no later than 11 A.M. for our 12 P.M. start time.
The Community Building Team is a group that consists of community neighbors and leaders, as well as University faculty, staff and students. The charge of the team is to explore, develop, recommend, and, through the appropriate combinations of direct action and stimulating the actions of others in the University and Community, implement means by which the neighbors of our adjoining community and the University can create an even better environment in which to live, work, and study. The team also organizes large scale events such as this annual community health fair.
What will be offered at the health fair?
- Join a growing number of vendors representing local health care providers, wellness specialists, and businesses that provide a variety of free giveaways and information (last year we were at 50—nearly doubled from our first year!)
- Free health screenings provided through LaSalle’s Neighborhood Nursing clinic and other vendors
- Enjoy live musical entertainment and performances
- Free food and healthy treats
- Your giveaways and gifts will be entered in an exciting raffle (more information on this aspect can be found below)
Who is invited?
- Neighbors from Germantown, Logan, Ogontz and Wister
- Students, faculty and staff from La Salle University
- City and State Representatives, small business owners, health care providers, and wellness specialists from our neighborhood and those who service our community
