East Valley Living (http://www.EVLiving.com/) a Forden Gorden venture, is a proud sponsor of the Maricopa County Fair, which runs from Wednesday through Sunday, April 14-18, 2004 at the Arizona State Fairgrounds in Phoenix Arizona.

Organized in 1975, Maricopa County Fair, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, is an annual event governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and staffed by hundreds of volunteers. General tax fund dollars are not allocated to this event. Their mission is to provide leadership, to inspire agricultural education, and to create venues for cultural opportunities for families and youth in Maricopa County to unite as one Community. The Maricopa County Fair is a showcase of exhibits, entertainment and education for the whole family. (http://www.maricopacountyfair.org/)

Maricopa County Fair provides an educational grant program for graduating high school seniors and first year college students. Their 4-H and FFA programs offer a host of opportunities for those wanting to participate. What better way to encourage family values and ethics, than through hard work and responsibility? By attending the Fair, you encourage the development of our great young people, and just perhaps, a few dreams of your own!

Maricopa County Fair offers free admission Fair Tours to schools in Maricopa County. This field trip is offered to share the educational displays and experiences available during the County Fair with schools in the community.

When asked why a website owner would have interest in sponsoring a major event like the Maricopa County Fair, EVLiving’s Editor Kathleen Forden responded, “EVLiving.com is a community-focused resource for residents, business, events, information, and news in the Phoenix Mesa East Valley area and surrounding communities. EVLiving represents the communities in which we live and work and the Fair is an opportunity for us to support an important community event.”

Arizona distributor, Lollies Galore (http://www.lolliesgalore.com/) is providing Twinkle Candy novelty lollipops at cost to EVLiving. EVLiving will offer 3 per bundle lollipops to fairgoers for a $2.00 donation, with net proceeds to benefit the Maricopa County Fair. Look for their booth located outside the yellow commercial exhibits building and donate to this worthy cause. To increase visibility for the lollipop donations, Arizona High Tech Talent Partnership (http://www.azhttp.com/) of Chandler Arizona has offered additional space in their booth located inside the commercial exhibits building for EVLiving lollipop donations.

Kathleen (Kathee) Gorden, EVLiving’s Operations Manager added, “Maricopa County Fair is a worthwhile organization to support. The future of their educational programs is dependent upon financial support from the private sector. EVLiving.com challenges all Maricopa County area community websites, television, radio and other news reporting agencies to match their contribution or donate to this important organization.”

For contribution matching details, please contact EVLiving.com principals at info@evliving.com after the Fair, or send your tax-deductible donations directly to the Maricopa County Fair, 1826 West McDowell Road, Phoenix, AZ 85007.
