Women's group to raise funds in Hoopeston

HOOPESTON — Women Making a Difference, a non-profit organization in Hoopeston, is hosting its second annual vendor fair 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Hoopeston Civic Center.

Other money raised will go to the following: three or four scholarships to college-bound graduating females; Teen Reach; Blessings in a Backpack and Feed My Lambs; Grant Township Food Cupboard; the library;

Jaycees Post Prom; Miracle Tree; and several others. All of the proceeds go into the community’s charities.

Organizers are looking for vendors to rent remaining spaces. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, and there are limited “same wares” of no more than two. For example, only two Avon, Pampered Chef, Tupperware, etc).
