SPRINGFIELD - Memorial Health System officials say the sixth annual "Be Aware Women's Fair" will be held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds on October 3.

This event will be held from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at the Orr Building.  Women from across the state are invited to attend and have a fun and informative day focused on physical, financial, and emotional health.

More than 100 exhibitors are scheduled to be in attendance this year, providing information on finance, fitness, heath, education, and more.  A new addition this year is the Kids' Corner, where children will be able to participate in several craft activities and meet animals at a petting zoo.  Visitors will also be able to get free health screenings and participate in raffle drawings.

The cost to attend this event is $4 per person, with all proceeds from this event going toward Memorial Medical Center's mammography patient assistance fund.  For more information about this fair, visit BeAwareWomensFair.com.
