A New MBA Promotions Committee Opportunity
Continuing our goal to increase public awareness and recognition for the businesses in Media, the MBA Promotions Committee is partnering with the Community Arts Center to have a booth at their upcoming Fine Arts and Crafts Festival.  This event hosts over 3500 visitors in Rose Tree Park during a two-day span in late September. In addition to handing out Media events schedules and highlighting the upcoming holiday season, we want to create a gift basket collection and raffle. These "Best of Media" baskets will be organized by business category (restaurants in one, retailers in another, salons, etc) to showcase Media as a prime destination for a wide variety of holiday & year-round shopping and entertainment.  Please let us know if you are willing to donate an item or gift-certificate. We'll also need people to help staff the booth over the two days. And drop by yourself, as this is a wonderful event worth seeing: click here for info...
