Dear Prospective Vendor:

It is with excitement and enthusiasm that we bring you greetings from Eastern Illinois University!

We are finalizing plans for the 2017 Black Student Reunion. Our theme, “We Go Way Back” is designed to pay homage to historical times at EIU such as the ‘Black House’ and the Black Student Union, which helped to pave the way for opportunities we have today. The reunion itself will be Friday, November 10 - Sunday, November 12, 2017 in Charleston, IL. To say the least, we are planning new activities with this year’s event in hopes that we will achieve our goal to raise $10,000 for student scholarships. Your participation will be an important factor to ensure our goal becomes a reality. Please join us for this special event.

The Eastern I1linois University campus, Reunion Participants and the Charleston communities look forward to the Black Student Reunion ‘Day Party Pop Up Shop’ to be held this year on Saturday, November 11, 2017. Location is TBA. We are charged with selecting a variety of vendors who provide a wide array of quality merchandise. We are delighted to extend an invitation for you to display your merchandise. This will be an opportunity for you to promote new and or existing products/services, increase awareness and loyalty to your products/services and identify fellow vendors to do business with you. Set up will be begin at 9:00am. Operational hours will be from 11:00am - 2:00pm on Saturday. Breakdown will be on Saturday no later than 3:30pm.
