Party in the park to help the kids

September 23, 2012 by  

Mid-October will be marked with ‘Party in the Park’, taking place at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. Proceeds go to benefit a good cause in the form of Voices for Children (VFC) Tampa.

The party will feature several musical acts such as Vodkanauts, Hip Abduction, and Ian Beckles, as well as food concessions and trucks, family-friendly activities, and vendors. Vendors will be representing various community organizations and local businesses. Rental fees for a 10’ x 10’ tent, an eight-foot table, and two chairs is $250 for food vendors, $200 for retail vendors, and $100 for non-profit organizations.

Vendors are to supply table cloths if they need them and will also no doubt be availing themselves of sign printing, banner printing, and flyer printing services, probably from Tampa printing companies. These products will help to draw attention to their booth and let their customers or clients know that they will be taking part in the event. Non-profit organizations will probably be providing literature to those who show an interest in their programs, perhaps with assistance from local brochure printers.

VFC Tampa helps abused and abandoned children. Its ‘Guardian ad Litem’ program matches children in need of legal help and funds with a mentor. The Guardian also speaks for the child in court if necessary.

Party in the Park is expected to draw at least 2,000 visitors and should raise a lot of funds for the cause on October 20, from 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm. Admission to the event is free.
