This winter has been brutal for Hoosiers. Most people cannot wait for spring to finally arrive, and with spring, comes the urge to spruce up our homes and landscaping. For remodeling, landscaping and interior design inspiration and professional advice, homeowners and garden enthusiasts can attend the Hendricks County Home and Garden Show on March 21 from 3 to 9 p.m. and March 22 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex, 1900 E. Main St.
The show will feature over 100 vendors, from local small businesses to larger national companies, who specialize in home and garden products and services – including new home construction, landscaping, kitchen and bath remodeling, flooring, replacement windows, plumbing, heating and cooling systems, decorating and more.
“The Hendricks Home Show provides residents with the perfect opportunity to meet with businesses who are experts in their fields,” says Becky Homko, event organizer and owner of Today’s Events and Business Services. “People can ask questions and learn more about the latest trends in indoor and outdoor living – everything they need to tackle their home and garden improvement projects.”
Additionally, all ticket proceeds from the event will go to support the Hendricks County Community Foundation’s (HCCF) Deedee Daniel Opportunity Fund. This fund provides grants to local nonprofit organizations, so they can offer programs that respond to the needs of Hendricks County residents.
“The Hendricks County Community Foundation is an integral part of the nonprofit community in the county,” says Homko. “We are proud to be their partner this year. When residents, businesses and nonprofit organizations can come together, we can create a better community.”
According to HCCF communications manager Ericka Bethel, the foundation is honored that the Home Show is supporting them in this way. “This event is a great way to show the community what the HCCF is doing to help nonprofits and other charitable groups in the county,” Bethel says. “The Home Show dollars will touch the community in a wide variety of ways, which is exciting to see. We hope people will come out and support our efforts to make Hendricks County a better place to live and work.”
Additionally, at the Home Show, the HCCF is hosting its Final Four March Mania grant award competition. Show attendees will have the opportunity to help choose the winner of a $1,000 grant awarded from the Deedee Daniel Opportunity Fund to a nonprofit organization. The grant winner will be announced on March 22 at 4 p.m.
Sports Auctions Midwest also will conduct a silent auction during the event to benefit the HCCF’s Deedee Daniel Opportunity Fund. Attendees can bid on several sports and movie memorabilia items until 4 p.m. on March 22.
Everyone in the whole family will find something to enjoy at the Home Show, says Homko. Face painting and balloons will be available for the kids. Friends and families can pose for fun photos in a vintage-style photo booth. Plus, T-Bone Disc Jockey will entertain the crowd with music and games.
Home Show tickets are $10 for adults, while kids, 12 years old and younger, are free. Tickets can be purchased at State Bank of Lizton branch locations, Ameriana Bank in Avon, Teachers Credit Union in Avon, and the Hendricks County Community Foundation. Tickets also will be available at the door.
Sponsors for the show include: The Flyer Group, Money Mailer Westside Direct, State Bank of Lizton, Heartfelt Photography, Elite Curb, T-Bone Disc Jockey and XRB Radio.
