Shakopee Home Improvement Expo
to Benefit Flood, Bridge Victims

ST. LOUIS PARK, MINN.—MediaMAX Events and Expos has partnered with The Foundation Network (TFN) Impact America Fund to raise funds for southeastern Minnesota families who were affected by recent floods, and for victims of the I-35W bridge collapse.

TFN Impact America will provide up to 16 hours of entertainment at the Home Improvement & Design Expo, which will be held Sept. 29 and 30 at Canterbury Park. Jazz vocalist Henry Allen, the neo-beatnik-folk-funk sensation Wolves and Ravens, saxophonist and gospel recording artist Mel Holder, reggae hip-hop performer Ryan Daniel and Christian artist Tru-Serva are among the performers. Also featured is Jeff Warner, Ultimate Strength, who “breaks bricks for Christ.”

Local green designer Joshua Foss, just returned from an appearance on HGTV’s hit show, “Design Star,” will discuss the benefits of “going green,” from increased health benefits, to lower heating, energy and water bills. He’ll also talk about green building as a movement and why it's important.

The Expo will feature up to 220 exhibitors and adds a new feature this year, “Ask the Expert.” Show attendees will be able to sit down with a builder or remodeler and create their ultimate dream home or visit with a master gardener and learn how to plan the “ultimate garden.” They can also meet with “healthy home” experts who will answer questions about radon, mold, allergies and ways to create a healthy living environment. “Green” housing professionals will highlight alternative living spaces and energy sources.

Attendees will also be able to take advantage of fall specials from various builders, remodelers, landscapers and home improvement professionals who will exhibit at the expo. An ATV will be given away each day; attendees must stay until the end of the show each day to be part of the drawing.

Hours are 10:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m. Sept. 29, and 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Sept. 30. Admission is $6 at the door. Canterbury Park is located at 1100 Canterbury Road, Shakopee.
