Over 100 Door Prizes Available at New Wilmington Business Expo

Over 100 door prizes will be given away during the fourth annual New Wilmington Area Business Expo on Saturday, March 18, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Westminster College Memorial Field House.  The event is free to the public.

More than 100 businesses have registered to participate in the event.  Businesses wishing to participate should contact Anne Bruening (724-946-3300) for more information.

Each participating business has donated door prizes to be given away at the event.  Patrons can sign up at each booth for a chance to win the valuable prizes, which run the gamut from tapestries to power tools.

"We are excited about the quality of the door prizes that will be given away and expect this year's Business Expo to showcase some of the great things available in our community," said event co-chair Betty Jones.

The event is organized by the New Wilmington Area Chamber of Commerce and is intended to provide local businesses with one-on-one contacts and marketing opportunities.  The Springfield Restaurant Group is the corporate gold sponsor.  The First National Bank and Sky Bank are silver sponsors, while Westminster College is a "Good Neighbor" sponsor.

Last year's Business Expo featured booths from 105 area businesses and over 1,000 visitors packed the Westminster Field House.  This year the Business Expo will expand to the main and auxiliary gyms and the lobby to provide additional room for business booths and patrons.

 Patrons can stop at the Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast between 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in Westminster's Galbreath Dining Room before or after attending the Business Expo. Tickets are available at the door.
