WJ Family Fest 2013 - Gator and Goblins - Oct 19





Your company is invited to have a very visible presence at West Jefferson Medical Center’s 4th West Jeff Family Festival presented by the West Jefferson Hospital Foundation. This unique opportunity for brand exposure includes a booth with many benefits. If you become a vendor at the 4th West Jeff Family Festival in 2012, it would be a great way to promote your business and reach new potential customers. It may also help enhance your company’s brand awareness.


Your participation would assist the West Jefferson Hospital Foundation, a non-profit entity, to meet their mission while enjoying a fun family-oriented event. This year’s Festival proceeds will especially benefit the Cancer Center at West Jefferson Medical Center. Donations will be greatly appreciated.


We hope you decide to get involved and join in on the excitement. The event will feature live music (August Rush, Aaron Foret and Rockin’ Dopsie Jr & The Zydeco Twisters), a car show, WJ Kid Zone, costume contes, a special appearance by Troy and Chase Landry from Swamp People, great food from various local places and much more.
