The 17th Annual Dearborn Women's Expo at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center in Dearborn has a special meaning for the Dearborn women who created the event.
The Expo raises funds for various charities including Children’s Leukemia Foundation of Michigan, Relay for Life Dearborn, and the Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund all dedicated to the memory of Brittany Crawford who was a student at Dearborn High when she lost her battle with leukemia in December 2002. The event creators, Janeen and Julie Sullivan, are sisters-in-laws and the mother and aunt of Brittany, who together organize an event that attracts 100+ exhibitors and over 2,000 attendees.
The Expo raises funds to help others who are battling cancer. With 100+ unique exhibits ranging from health and beauty to home improvement, accessories and meal preparation, silent auction items, raffles, Fitness and Wellness Demos, duck pond full of great prizes, and a fashion show, the event promises something for every age and interest.
Admission is $3; children under age 12 FREE!
