Attention Vendors and Non-Profits

With the holidays fast approaching, it is our goal to raise the “spirit meter” in Ford City:

The event organizers for the upcoming Ford City light-up event “Fantasy of Lights: Believe in the Magic of Christmas” (Saturday, November 30th) are seeking area churches, youth groups, civic organizations, or vendors to provide additional food, activity, or give-away booths.

Please note that no booth fees are involved in participation with churches, schools, and non-profits. We are working towards increased community involvement, and hope you use the opportunity as a fundraising effort for your mission, or as an action of engagement (or goodwill) in increasing the “spirit meter”.

We will do everything in our power to accommodate all who wish to participate! Help us create the magic of the holiday season with family, friends, neighbors, and visitors alike. Together we can raise the “spirit meter” and create special memories…Thank you!

Interested parties may contact 724-763-3974 or via email: klukan3974@hotmail.com
