Vendor connecting with our families

It is often difficult for families to navigate the system of specialists and autism friendly organizations in our community.   An important part of the Walk for Autism is the vendor tables.  Bringing various agencies/organizations together to highlight their services as related to autism provides our participants an opportunity to learn about is available to meet their needs.  The 2016 Walk for Autism brought in a 15% increase in pre-registered Walkers, over 2,500 participants, 64 teams, and 100 volunteers.  We anticipate another increase for the upcoming 2017 Walk for Autism.

The tables will be under a tent but have no electricity available.  One table is provided to each pre-registered vendor.  The vendor cost for the 2017 – 16th Annual Walk for Autism is:  $40.00.  We are offering pond side of the 20 X 30 tents – (6 spaces available) and land side and end of the 20 X 30 tents (14 spaces available) on a first come; first serve basis.  Attendees consistently tell us that the vendor tables are one of their favorite parts of the day.  Here, they get the opportunity to meet local businesses and organization that provide products and services to meet their needs.  Would your organization be interested in registering for a vendor table at the 2017 Autism Walk?  Register early as space is limited for vendor tables.
