The Simply Amazing Market participated in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon Expo this year for the first time, and found the event to be highly beneficial.

The Market garnered a good deal of interest in gift sets, which are available for the holidays, and passed out hundreds of coupons with information about products and services.

OE’s Simply Amazing Market had several gift sets on display during the Bank of America Chicago Marathon Expo.

Simply Amazing Market manager Julie Dessauer said people at the expo were excited about supporting OE's mission of providing life choices and opportunities for individuals with disabilities. They were also impressed with the quality of the gourmet fudge and popcorn, along with the Market's gift boxes and corporate gift sets.

“With the holiday season coming up, people at the Marathon Expo were very excited to learn they can give a gourmet gift and support a great cause,” Dessauer said. “It was a great way to introduce our products to more people and show off the unique gift sets that we have to offer. Our gourmet treats have become a popular choice of gift for both families and businesses during the holidays.”

The Bank of America Chicago Marathon Expo took place at McCormick Place in Chicago on Oct. 9 and 10.
