Spotlight: September 19, 2010 – Fresh! Fraser Valley

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

We are so excited that this week has finally arrived. Fresh! Fraser Valley is taking place this Saturday, September 25th and we can’t wait! You are all invited to join us from 9AM – 5PM, at the Ramada Plaza in Abbotsford, as we celebrate our glorious Fraser Valley!

Fresh! Fraser Valley is a collaboration between FVP’s Kristi Ferguson and Danielle Knowles of Red Pencil Editing Services. As we both work with many talented local businesses, we thought it would be great to bring together the best of the Fraser Valley under one roof, for one day with a locally owned business showcase and a dynamic workshop series. The intention is to showcase the best of the Fraser Valley: our artisans, entrepreneurs and exciting “Mom ‘n Pop” enterprises, and to encourage area residents to support these local businesses.

You will see many of our past Pulse Spotlights at Fresh, including Freetoes, Clayburn Comforts, Out of Line Designs, Aromatica and Frosting Cupcakery (who will have plenty of tasty cupcake samples for you to try). The exhibitor list is exciting, with over 50 exhibitors coming from White Rock, Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, Mission, Maple Ridge and Chilliwack. There will be custom boots, a chocolate shop, business services, decorating specialists, a stationary shop, baby boutique, Halloween costumes, custom furniture, artisan jewellery, men’s and women’s clothing boutiques, talented photographers… even a pumpkin patch! There will be lots to see, experience and purchase :) We have heard some of the giveaways and contests the individual exhibitors are planning and they are goooooood!

Attendees will also be treated to the sounds of a local Fraser Valley talent. Jared Fowler will be playing throughout the day and we think he is awesome! Have a listen to some of his original sounds.

For those in business, there are 20 minute workshops running throughout the day. 13 dynamic workshops will cover everything from how to get a website, intellectual property law, hiring a Virtual Assistant to strategic planning and making the shift from traditional to new media. Local leaders are sharing their expertise for just $10 per workshop, or all 13 for $50! A fabulous deal and some amazing information to be shared, indeed. We have one full day workshop ticket to share with one of you – Realtors, shop owners… anyone in business will benefit from these sessions. Please leave a note below to be entered to win.

With thanks to our amazing 2010 sponsors, the Fresh showcase is FREE to attend! At the door we will be collecting donations to the Fraser Valley Chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society, should you wish to contribute a little something to the charity we’ve selected to support this year. They will also be on site with Jeans & Gems tickets and raffle tickets for tickets to anywhere Westjet flies! Nice!

Be sure to book your FREE Fresh! showcase tickets or your workshop tickets online to be automatically entered to win 2 nights at the glorious South Garden B&B, 4 tickets to Jeans & Gems and a host of other door prizes. Winners will be contacted after the event.

Fresh! is taking place at the Ramada Plaza in Abbotsford: a central Fraser Valley location that is just off of Highway 1. We look forward to seeing you all this Saturday. You won’t want to miss this fabulous celebration of all the hard working, creative local businesses that make our Fraser Valley so fantastic.
