Our 32nd Annual Autumn Craft & Vendor Show was held on Saturday, October 21,2017, at Batavia High School. Over 700 shoppers came through the doors to enjoy more than 100 crafters and vendors, the ever-popular bake sale, a charity raffle, the 50/50 raffle, the new Community Pumpkin Patch, and lunch served by McAlister’s Deli and Bernie’s Bully Dogs.
BMCF would like to thank all of the participants in the Community Pumpkin Patch. Charities from across the Fox Valley carved and/or decorated pumpkins to display in our Pumpkin Patch this year. Attendees of the show used their spare change to vote for their favorite pumpkin. All of the money raised through voting went directly to the group that designed the pumpkin. We proudly announce that Lazarus House won the friendly contest, followed by CHIP IN Batavia and Valley Sheltered Workshop.
BMCF appreciates the support of all of our sponsors of this community event especially our platinum sponsors: Apollo Development & Investment and A.R. Bohr Roofing LLC, as well as all of our additional sponsors and our in-kind donors. The Autumn Craft & Vendor Show is BMCF’s largest fundraiser.
