The Bishop Backers seek to connect the community with events held on the Ohio Wesleyan University campus, build a volunteer network for future events, identify opportunities for OWU students to provide service, promote attendance at OWU’s many athletic and cultural programs, and encourage Delaware County students to consider Ohio Wesleyan as their college of choice. 

On Saturday, February 17, the Bishop Backers will host Community Day 2018 with free admission to the Ohio Wesleyan men’s and women’s basketball doubleheader (with the donation of a canned food item to benefit the Delaware Hunger Alliance. 

The event will include a children’s play area, a visit from some Columbus Zoo friends, a chance to meet OWU athletes, and a community expo showcasing local community service agencies, restaurants, and businesses. It’s a perfect way to connect with the OWU and Delaware communities, share information, find volunteers, and promote your business. The Community Day expo will be open from noon to 3:30 p.m. 

Thanks to a generous commitment from local supporters, tables and chairs will be free for nonprofit organizations. For-profit organizations/businesses are asked to donate a gift card (minimum $10), gift basket, or similar item in lieu of a registration fee. The gift cards, gift baskets, and other donated items will be used for raffles throughout the event. 

Participants are responsible for providing all elements of their exhibit (product displays, table cloths, extension cords, coupons, giveaways, and other marketing materials). Participants also will be responsible for setting up and taking down their exhibits. Set-up will begin at 11 a.m. February 17 and tear-down will begin no earlier than 3:30 p.m. Alcohol is prohibited at this event.
