We’re moving everything along and it is going briskly!
If you know anything about pumpkin farms during the fall, you KNOW we are going to have a wonderful time!
Take a look at the website! Doesn’t it just make you smile?
We will also be hosting guest speakers, demo presenters with samples on our program and vendors who are knowledgeable about gluten-free foods, health, fitness, and beauty.
I am so proud and happy to announce that NC FACES, a volunteer-only support group for parents and families of food allergic children will benefit from a portion of the proceeds. Here is more about them:
We are an all volunteer support group sharing information, support, and some fun. We provide a social and emotional support network for Food Allergic Families in all stages of learning about the process of living with food allergies. We will remain constant in our dedication to teach our children how to live fully productive, interactive, exciting, and safe lives.
Save the date on your calendar, so when tickets become available, you’ll be ready to be a part of this ground breaking fun!
Let us know if you’d like to participate! We have several levels of participation available.
We have two major goals:
We want to raise awareness about food allergies, especially gluten and wheat sensitivity, providing resources to educate and inform the public.
We also want to provide a live-action directory of Triangle businesses that are seriously knowledgeable about gluten-free living.
It is so important to maintain an active, safe, and balanced life as a gluten or allergy affected individual! We can do it!
The NC Triangle Gluten Intolerance Fair is off to a great start!
We are gathering resources and contacts who are thoroughly knowledgeable about the unique needs of gluten-free living.
Most of these resources will be located in the Triangle area, so that public attendees will have the ability to understand precisely what the Triangle has to offer gluten-intolerant individuals. All are welcome, as there is much to learn! Let’s bring everyone together!
Now for the fun stuff! We are currently seeking:
With varying levels of sponsorship, and online as well as event exposure.
Platinum sponsors receive front page placement on website, dedicated blog post of the business, social media postings, exclusive exposure at Friday night mixer, and key placement at the event.
Gold sponsors receive front page placement on the nctgif.com website, social media postings, and key placement at the event.
Silver sponsors receive front page placement on the website, social media postings, and placement at the event.
Customized sponsorship is available to assess your needs and budget.
***Social media will include mention of all sponsors during the event and recap***
These individuals should have an in-depth knowledge of the subject matter. They would be certified, well-qualified in their field, and have current licensure if applicable.
Gluten-free food, health, beauty, and fitness vendors are welcome.
All regulations and requirements must be met, as they are professionally responsible for whatever is offered.
The event will be kept to a manageable size, however it won’t happen without some awesome volunteers who will work short shifts, and receive free admission for the day.
Friday Venue for the NC TGIF Cocktail Hour
Can your establishment mix great gluten-free cocktails and provide a limited menu of certified/naturally gluten-free small plates?
We’d love to work with you! We are hosting a limited ticket cocktail hour on Friday evening the weekend of the fair!
Stay tuned as more information is made available.
