Mount Dora Merchants & Business Assn. Press Release for Antiques & Trades Fair

Mount Dora's Annual Antique & Trade Fair ~ Where you can Drop, Shop & Win
The Mount Dora Village Merchants & Business Association is proud to sponsor its upcoming 13th Annual Antique & Trade Fair scheduled for Saturday & Sunday, March 28 & 29 from 9am-5pm.
"We're excited to host this year's event", said Terry Abbott, the Association's Promotions & Events Committee Chairman, "we've got lots of great dealers joining us this year, many of whom have participated in our past events. We'll see the historic downtown streets come alive with this two-day event, which will also feature live musical entertainment the Friday evening before the event, as well as Saturday evening. It's sure to be a great weekend for both our residents and visitors to shop and play in our great town."
At this event, the Association will be accepting canned & dry food donations for one of our newest community groups, "Lake Cares", a food bank now serving the Lake County area. "We recognize the growing needs in our community during these challenging economic times", said Leigh Love, President of the Association, "and we are pleased to have the opportunity to accept donations on behalf of this worthwhile group during our event."
Debra Paradis, Lake Cares Board President, encourages our attendees that donate at our show to tape a quarter to your canned or dry food donation. Paradis says, "with your monetary donation, we can buy up to nine times in food value with our purchasing power". The Association will be accepting both food and monetary donations for Lake Cares at the Antique & Trade Welcome Tent, located in the center of the fair on Donnelly & Fourth Streets.
Show attendees that donate to Lake Cares will automatically be entered into the Association's Antique & Trade Fair Raffle; all others can purchase a ticket to win for $1. The winner of this raffle will receive a gift basket valued at up to $500 worth of Mount Dora merchants goods & services and will be announced at the conclusion of the event on Sunday, March 29th at 5pm.
