The Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation has been closely following the ever-changing status of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the recommendations from the CDC, Governor Pritzker, and the IDPH, we are cancelling the 2020 Craft Show that was to be held on Saturday, October 17th. The health and well being of our community is important to BMCF. Though we are disappointed to cancel the always popular and fun Craft Show, we hope that in doing so we are doing our part to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Applicants will have the option of donating their application fee to the Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation, or to transfer their application fee to next year’s 2021 Craft Show. Our foundation is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit and we work hard every year to raise money for families in the Fox Valley. If you choose to donate your application fee to BMCF, your business name will be recognized as a bronze sponsor to our organization featured on our website and social media outlets. If donating or transferring your application fee is not an option, you may request a full refund via check.
We appreciate your continued support of the Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation and our mission to improve the quality of life for children and families in the Fox Valley. As our community navigates these uncertain and stressful times it is a gift to be able to lean on our friends and neighbors. Thank you for being a part of the BMCF community.
Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns. We look forward to seeing you soon.
The Batavia Mothers’ Club Foundation (BMCF) held its 34th Annual Autumn Craft & Vendor Show on Saturday, October 19,2019, at Batavia High School. Over 850 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 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 and gourds to display in our Pumpkin Patch. Attendees of the show donated spare change to their favorite pumpkin’s cauldron. All monies raised through the pumpkin patch went directly to the group that designed the pumpkin. Participating organizations this year were 1st Grade Daisy Girl Scout Troop 1708, 1st Grade Daisy Girl Scout Troop 1544, 7th Grade Cadette Girl Scout Troop 111, Aunt Mary’s Storybook Project, Batavia Activity & Athletic Foundation, Batavia Interfaith Food Pantry, Batavia Women’s Club, Batavia United Way, Chip In, H.C. Storm Elementary, JB Nelson Elementary SAB, Marklund, and Suicide Prevention Services..
BMCF appreciates the support of all of our sponsors and in-kind donors in making our largest community event and fundraiser a success. Special thanks to our platinum sponsors: Apollo Development & Investment, A.R. Bohr Roofing LLC, and Orange Theory Fitness. Proceeds from the show are distributed to local charities whose work improves the lives of children and families in our community.
Thanks to our 2019 Craft Show Sponsors!
