Etobicoke Mompreneur 2012 Spring Showcase
Thank you to EVERYONE for your support, involvement and help in making our 1st Etobicoke Mompreneurs Showcase & Etobicoke Mom2Mom Sale a great success!
We had over 150 incredible sponsors and business vendors, amazing presentations and demonstrations, including a Magical Visit from Cinderella, support from our local media and 700 shoppers! We are thrilled to announce that, through our admission donations, silent auction, chair massage donation, and Charity BBQ earnings from Incognito Catering, we were able to raise an incredible $1,458.00 for L.A.M.P. Community Health Centre.
- First and foremost, to My Family: To my husband Casey for his support throughout the year, leading up to the event. To my little girls who traveled with me to meetings and putting up signs and spread the word about the Showcase. I have little Mompreneurs in training. To my parents, friends and family for their unconditional support and babysitting it is greatly appreciated!! Thank you all so much!
- To our Sponsors: Acura Sherway, Urban Mom Realty, Publisher Production Solutions, SNAP-Etobicoke, Busy Genie, Incognito Catering, TimBUKtu Playland, Embella Party Store, SupperWorks Etobicoke, Light Up The Floor, Toronto Women’s Expo, Funky Fluff, The Laundry Tarts and to all our promotional supporters… to have all of you involved in such an important day was incredible, and I am sincerely grateful and appreciative to know that such talented entrepreneurs in this great town are welcoming and supportive of other small businesses through Etobicoke Mompreneurs. Thank you so much!
- To our Supporters: To Jerry of SNAP Etobicoke, The Etobicoke Guardian: thank you for coming out and sharing our event with members of the community, so we may continue to spread the word of Etobicoke Mompreneurs and help our members see continued success with their businesses!
- To ALL our Volunteers: Gus, Lina, Kelly, Melissa, Jacqueline, Doris, Emily, Angela, Erica, Michelle, Camisha from LAMP and ALL her Volunteers I know you took time out from your own jobs and families to help with set-up and tear-down and bag stuffing and promoting and making the show run smoothly. I don’t think words will ever really express just how grateful I am… without your help I would have been so lost, so THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
- To our Amazing Vendors: you were all so energetic and happy ALL DAY! Really, I couldn’t ask for a better group of women (and some men!!) to work with and associate with. We had so much incredible feedback from shoppers, letting us know how impressed they were with the variety and professionalism of our vendors… so kudos for making all our visitors’ time worthwhile, and for making my job so easy!! A special thanks also to the business owners who donated to our silent auction, your generosity helped us earn much needed donations towards our grand total for LAMP Community Health Centre!
