Memorial's Be Aware Women's Fair Accepting Exhibitors

Memorial Medical Center Foundation is accepting applications for exhibitors to participate in its fifth annual Be Aware Women’s Fair in October.

An estimated 100 exhibitors participate in Memorial Medical Center’s Be Aware Women’s Fair each year. Exhibitors cover topics such as clothing, finance, fitness, health, beauty, fashion, home decoration and education.

The Be Aware Women’s Fair will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18, in the Orr Building on the Illinois State Fairgrounds.

The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk will be held the same day on the fairgrounds. All participants in the walk will receive free admission to the Be Aware Women’s Fair.

Exhibitors’ booths are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Booth prices range from $100 to $250 although discounts are available for exhibitors who apply before June 27. The deadline for booth reservations for exhibitors is Aug. 15.

Exhibitors can visit to print off a contract. They can also send an email to or call the Memorial Medical Center Foundation office at (217) 788-4700 for a contract or for more information.

Proceeds from the Be Aware Women’s Fair support the hospital’s mammography patient assistance fund, which assists women who may need additional tests after receiving a positive result from a mammogram but can’t afford the associated expenses.
