Do you have a red marker? Go ahead, open your calendar and put a big circle around the dates of September 14-15. Because that’s when Bussani Mobility Team will be hosting our annual “Independence and Mobility Fair”!
Hundreds of people living with physical disabilities, their friends and families will gather at this action-packed event to learn about all types of accessibility products and services to help make their lives easier…and more fun!
Featuring over 30 organizations, exhibitors and vendors will be on hand with displays of home modifications, wheelchairs, scooters, lifts, adaptive equipment and services, and so much more…including a Kid’s Carnival Corner with wheelchair accessible games, crafts, balloon animals, face painting, and even a red carpet fashion show. There will be fabulous food, valet parking, and raffles with great prizes.
Visitors to the fair can explore the largest fleet of wheelchair accessible vans in NY and adaptive driving equipment, with the Bussani Mobility Team offering $1,000 OFF ANY NEW VAN OR $500 OFF A PRE-OWNED VAN purchased at the event.
FREE 45-minute accessibility workshops will run throughout the two-day event. Some of the topics will include: accessible travel, good health and fitness, canine companions, veteran’s benefits and services, home modifications, legal and financial services, wheelchair sports, and since October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, vocational training and employment tips.
FREE wheelchair tune-ups will also be provided by certified mobility specialists. Plus attendees can register to vote and learn how to use accessible voting machines.
“Our accessibility fair has been a tradition at Bussani Mobility Team for many years now, and we always have a great turnout,” said Daniel Bussani, Vice President at Bussani Mobility Team. “We look forward to getting together with our customers, so many of whom have become lifelong friends. We’re happy to be able to provide a fun atmosphere where people with physical disabilities can come to socialize and discover new resources to give them the ability to live and travel with freedom and independence.”
