    Buy Idaho Celebrates 33 Years

    BOISE, Idaho.  (October 1, 2019) –is the theme of Buy Idaho’s 33rd Annual Reception. The event will be held on October 1st from 4pm-7pm at JUMP in downtown Boise. The reception will celebrate 33 years of Buy Idaho collaborations and partnerships in Idaho’s growing business community.

    The reception will include a tradeshow and silent auction. Up to thirty Buy Idaho vendors will be on display showcasing, sampling and selling Idaho products and services. The silent auction will also feature Idaho businesses and includes valuable packages including BSU football tickets, a Botanical Garden experience, and a night’s stay at the Inn at 500.  Tickets to the reception are $25/person.

    This year, Buy Idaho is proud to host guest speaker, Mother Earth Brew Co. owner, Dan Love. Dan moved to Idaho and immediately integrated himself, along with Mother Earth Brew Co., into the local community and economy.  Dan has led by example through collaboration with other local businesses, engagement in community events, and commitment to the continued growth of Idaho.  

    The program will also feature a look toward 2020 with Buy Idaho including a new website, programing, and events.

    “Connecting businesses across the state through networking, collaboration, and engagement helps strengthen Idaho’s economy”, said Jennifer Mauk, Executive Director of Buy Idaho. “We are excited to celebrate 33 years of the Buy Idaho organization championing for the success of local businesses.”

    For 33 years, Buy Idaho has worked diligently on behalf of our members to provide networking platforms and promote the Buy Idaho message. When we support Idaho businesses, it keeps dollars in the state. These dollars reinvest themselves in other Idaho businesses and services. It improves job opportunities and increases state tax revenues that support public services.

    Buy Idaho is community benefit organization with members throughout the state. The Buy Idaho showroom is located at 412 S. 6th St. in downtown Boise, Idaho.
