FUN FIRST FRIDAYS


October 5, November 2, December 7


    began in April 2012 as a means to support the entrepreneurial spirit of people with disabilities in our community.  People with disabilities are often not afforded equal employment opportunities and begin micro-enterprise businesses that sell hand crafted items including ceramics, paintings, jewelry, t-shirts and hats.


 There are few affordable opportunities for these artisans to sell their creations to the community and those are generally provided by disability service provider agencies.  This limits the goal of having a micro-enterprise provide a valued identity in the community at large.  Fun First Fridays provides an inclusive community setting to showcase the abilities and self-determination of people with disabilities.


 Fun First Fridays takes place the first Friday of every month at 27300 Wixom Road at the corner of Grand River Avenue.  The event is indoors at a large retail store that does not allow us to advertise their company name.


 We are seeking partners who share our commitment to support people with disabilities who can and want to become productive members of society.


 We would like to any local companies that wants to demonstrate their support of people with disabilities to be self-determined entrepreneurs by listing our logo on your commercials and promotional materials, encouraging your clients to visit our event. 


 There is no charge for any companies to be a promotional partner of FUN FIRST FRIDAYS.  We invite your company to be present and set up a display to promote your business and hand out coupons or brochures.  Other ideas are certainly welcome.


 Fun First Fridays will take place October 5, November 2, December 7.  The event will be at indoors at 27300 Wixom Road at the southeast corner of Grand River Avenue.


 


Please contact us to discuss this further.


We need your support to make these events successful.


 Please contact all local media including newspapers, television and radio stations and request them to mention these events in advance.
