Discount market to benefit female business owners

The University of Richmond will host the Ivy Market next week in the Jepson Alumni Center, offering students and community members marketplace shopping to benefit organizations in the Richmond area.

The Ivy Market will feature female-owned businesses from along the East Coast, offering exceptional prices on a variety of items including art, jewelry, paper, gifts, ceramics, clothing and shoes.

The market will be open 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. March 31 and 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. April 1. Admission is $5 per day. Admission fees and a portion of vendor proceeds benefit the Tad Dupriest Foundation and Assistance Support Kindness, a local organization that provides emotional, spiritual, financial and social support to children with cancer and their families in the Richmond area.
