In addition, to support the Humane Society of Puerto Rico, dealers can bring the following: blankets, food, bottled water, animal beds and crates, retail gift cards, and online monetary donations.

The Ft. Lauderdale Vendopalooza will take place today, October 18, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the SCP Parking Lot, located at 3490 SW 30th Ave., Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33312. Dealers attending the event will have the opportunity to meet first-hand with more than 40 vendors, participate in vendor sponsored trainings and enter to win a 55-inch LG OLED TV, a Samsung 55Q7F, or over 30 other giveaways. Free lunch will be provided for attendees.

“With the devastating events that have happened across this region within the last month, we were compelled to help out where we could," said Seth Evenson, director of customer experience management for AVAD. “We invite our dealers in the Ft. Lauderdale area to help support those affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria by bringing in donations and any donation, large or small, is welcome.”
