The Dog Park for Oakland, NJ Fundraising Committee proudly announces our next fundraising effort to go towards the construction of a dog park in Oakland.
On November 12, 2017 from 10am to 4pm, a craft show will be held at the Oakland Knights of Columbus building on 7 Courthouse Place in Oakland, NJ which will feature local crafters and vendors selling their goodies, wares, and products just in time for holiday shopping as the end of the calendar year quickly approaches.
"To be perfectly frank, while I greatly admire the time put in and the work ethic of these crafters and artisans, I am not an expert when it comes to this field," says Dog Park for Oakland, NJ movement founder and leader Ryan Schwertfeger. "However, I am grateful to have daughter of fundraising committee member Charlie Delman, Mrs. Lauren Binder, on board and organizing this event. This was her idea and I gladly agreed to pursue this fundraising venture. I am excited to try a new route and reach out to a different demographic to not just increase awareness of the efforts and raise additional funds for the dog park, all while providing access to local citizens to these high quality vendors for the upcoming holidays."
"I decided to get involved with the dog park project because it is something that I feel will benefit everyone in the community," said Lauren Binder. "I have brought my dogs to the dog park in Ridgewood before and it has helped them tremendously. Having a dog park in town will help give me the opportunity to socialize her more, and meet other dog lovers within my town."
Lauren has been involved with and has attended many craft shows before and she is looking forward to making this craft show event a success. "We have brought in a wide variety of direct sales vendors and crafters to provide a holiday shopping event for our community, and to help fund our dog park," said Binder. "Each of our vendors is excited to participate and is bringing a lot of exciting ideas for our show."
For those interested in becoming a vendor for the craft show, please contact Lauren Binder at email@example.com before November 5th as you will need to reserve a spot and sign a contract. Vendors will donate 10% of their sales made that day towards the fundraising efforts, with a minimum of $25, in addition to donating item/items worth at least $10 for a raffle to take place on site also to benefit the dog park fundraising efforts.
For those interested in coming as shoppers, there is no entrance fee to get in but a donation to the dog park efforts is strongly suggested. In addition, Dog Park for Oakland supporter magnets will also be available for purchase for $5 each. Members of the public can get updates about the event by checking the home page of the Dog Park for Oakland, NJ website at www.dogpark4oaklandnj.org and also by going on Facebook to the Dog Park for Oakland, NJ page and looking at the specific event post for the Craft Show. Shoppers can also email firstname.lastname@example.org if they have any other questions, comments, or inquiries.
