Save the Date: 2017 Raleigh Children’s Business Fair on October 7

The Pope Foundation will bring the Raleigh Children’s Business Fair back to North Hills shopping center on Saturday, October 7, 2017 from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.  Community members are invited to attend and shop with over 40+ youth-run businesses at The Commons at North Hills (circle drive in front of Chick-fil-A).

The fair was first held last year and is a part of the national Children’s Business Fair network.  The event invites local children to apply for a tent space where they can showcase and sell their original products and ideas.  The fair provides a safe and family-friendly learning environment where children ages 6-14 experience the thrill of entrepreneurship firsthand.  The fair also has an element of competition as local community leaders serve as judges to award small cash prizes in two age groups.

More details will follow, but please save the date and visit the event on Facebook.
