My friend, Heather Gallagher, works with this awesome little dude’s mother (Monica) and she wanted to do what she could to help raise money for his medical expenses.

Monica was given an awesome opportunity from Clipper Magazine Stadium: they are giving her the Ballpark for a fundraiser the entire day on October 9, 2010!!

We are incorporating an Art & Craft show into the festivities of the day. There will be news coverage and we expect a fantastic turnout!

Art & Craft Show Info

  • Saturday – October 9, 2010
  • 8am-2pm
  • Clipper Magazine Stadium
  • Lancaster, PA

Doors open to public at 8 am, park opens to vendors at 6 am. Spaces must be set-up and ready to sell by 8 am. Show will conclude at 2 pm. There will be other events going on throughout the day/evening, so you may remain set-up later if you wish.

Our goal is to get 100 arts & crafts vendors. Vendors are juried, meaning that we will want to see a sample photo of the items you will be selling to be sure we offer a variety of quality items.

We will be set-up on the ball field and spaces will be $50 for a 10×10 space. If you are a smaller vendor and would like to share a space with another vendor, we can certainly accommodate that.

We ask for an item to be donated for a raffle. If you would like to donate a portion of your sales from the day to the Antonio Forte Transplant Fund Trust, it would be greatly appreciated, but not required. You can contact Heather at for a vendor application and event sheet.

If you are unable to set up for the event we would be happy to include one of your donated items in a raffle. Contact Heather if you are interested in donating an item to raffle.

We need volunteers to help run the event:

  • Registration Coaches to sign people in
  • Runners- to help direct people to their spaces
  • Relievers- will be assigned to a group of stands. They will watch & if a vendor needs to use the restroom or take a bread to eat the Relievers will man the stand for a short time.
  • People to man the raffle table.

Please pass this onto your friends - the more vendors/Volunteers we have at the event the more help we can offer this family! If you have any questions, please contact Heather Gallagher at
