WORTHINGTON -- The first-ever Women's Expo Health and Home Show is four weeks from today, and tickets for the event go on sale Monday.
Presented by the Daily Globe, the March 29 event -- set for 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Minnesota West Community and Technical College -- will offer educational and entertaining seminars throughout the day along with informative and fun exhibits.
"We're at 50 exhibitors at this point, with several positive responses from others that we're waiting to hear from," Daily Globe publisher Joni Harms said. "We have a large variety of exhibits from areas such as health care, finance, construction, food and much more."
The Daily Globe has been working with the Worthington Area Chamber of Commerce on the event. The Chamber coordinated a Health, Home and Garden Show in 2007; this year's show has been expanded, Harms said.
Serving as title sponsors for the event are Avera Worthington Specialty Clinics, First State Bank Southwest and Sanford Clinic. Each title sponsor is sponsoring two seminars apiece.
Major sponsors are Worthington Regional Hospital and Minnesota West, which are each doing one seminar. Sue Doeden, the Daily Globe's food editor, is also putting on a pair of cooking seminars.
"Another huge drawing card should be the prize sponsors we're working with," Harms added. Hy-Vee will be awarding $100 gift cards to lucky winners, while Slumberland Furniture will be giving away a five-piece Bradshaw living room grouping. Johnson Jewelry will also be awarding a diamond journey necklace to a fortunate recipient.
"We really want to emphasize this is not for women only," Harms said. "The mix of exhibitors and seminars will offer something for everyone."
Tickets for the Women's Expo Health and Home Show will be available for sale at the Daily Globe. People who purchase tickets in advance will receive a discount; tickets will also be available at the door the day of the event.
The Daily Globe Web site and print edition will provide additional information about the event in the coming days.
