2017 BURN BENEFIT VENDOR INFORMATION
October 13,14 & 15
Hosted by The Phoenix Organization of Jefferson
We would like to say Thank you for your Participation in the Burn Benefit in 2016. We had a good year, we are looking forward to an even better year in 2017, and look forward to seeing you again.
Dear Merchandise, Arts & Crafts or Food Vendor,
It’s that Time again!!!
We appreciate your interest in the 2017 Continuing the Ride Burn Benefit. This is the continuation of a longrunning
benefit held in Jefferson, albeit with a new name, but keeping the same mission. We at the Phoenix Organization and Auntie Skinner’s Riverboat Club, have always been a part of the benefits and fundraisers here in Jefferson, Texas. We love to give back to our community as much as we can. “Continuing the ride for
burn survivors” is just the beginning of a long adventure. Although there is a lot of work to do, we are striving for a better today and a better tomorrow. Your, and attendee, support has allowed us to nearly double our annual contribution each year to the Percy R. Johnson Burn Foundation and children’s “Camp I’m Still Me.” We
appreciate all of those who have helped us along the way as we could not have done it without you.
Please find an application/information sheet downloadable form below.
In order to be a part of the benefit, you MUST provide at least three (3) photos, with detailed list and description of the merchandise you intend to sell, and a photo of your booth, with your application. The Phoenix Organization reserves the right to limit the number of booths with similar items and the right to remove unapproved items. If you have participated in other events, photos of your booth setup would be very helpful.
We continue to grow and improve every year, so this year there are a few changes to vendor setups and space availability. We are introducing “Premium Locations” and “Requested Locations,” as well as distributing vendors among the attendees to help increase your visibility and sales potential. More information on these can
be found on our website or by contacting one of us below.
However, we have not increased basic booth fees.
This year, it is critical all vendors, regardless of profit or non-profit status or if you are a resident of Marion County, return the City of Jefferson Itinerant Merchant Permit Application. Also, if you require power for your booth, you must include the Power Fee (regardless of Profit or Non-Profit status) and indicate the amount (in amps) and the type and quantity of plugs you require.
Lastly, setup times have changed to make it easier for you to quickly and efficiently setup your booth.
Setup for Food Vendors and large booths (10×30 or larger) will be Thursday Evening after 5 p.m.
All other vendor setups will be Friday Morning from 8 a.m. to Noon. Tear down is Sunday between Noon and 5 p.m.
Details on your location and setup time will be provided approximately two weeks prior to the event. See Terms and
Conditions for more details.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at any time.
Again, thank you in advance for your continued support of us and this cause.
