The force was with three of our tee/green sponsors at the 2022 Greater Lafayette Commerce Golf Outing!

This year was a close race for first place. But, after much deliberation, Hearing Solutions of Indiana wins! In second place, we have Huth Thompson LLP. And coming in at a close third is Painting with a Twist!

We appreciate all of our sponsors' efforts to make this event even more enjoyable. Way to set the bar above par for next year. Here are some pictures of our top three picks:
On behalf of Purdue University and Purdue Orientation Programs, Greater Lafayette Commerce invites and encourages you to participate in the 2022 B-Involved Fair at Boiler Gold Rush. Boiler Gold Rush is Purdue's welcome week orientation program for all new undergraduate students and takes place the week before fall classes begin.

The B-Involved Fair will include Greater Lafayette businesses and organizations like yours, as well as over 400 student organizations. The fair helps incoming students build their involvement experience at Purdue and with the Greater Lafayette community.

We are also excited to inform you that as a Greater Lafayette Commerce member, your cost to participate will be discounted:

  • $50 per table, non-profit organizations
  • $75 per table, for-profit member of Greater Lafayette Commerce
  • $125 per table, for-profit non-members of Greater Lafayette Commerce

B-Involved Fair
Saturday, August 20, 2022
12 p.m. – 3 p.m.

The deadline to register as a vendor is Sunday, July 10.

Questions about the event should be directed to Craig Johnson, Director of Orientation Programs via email at john1803@purdue.edu.

Special note about Boiler Bridge Bash:
The B-Involved Fair is replacing what has traditionally been Boiler Bridge Bash (a Greater Lafayette Commerce-powered event).

With the continual increase in enrollment, Purdue is eliminating off-campus events due to the logistics of transporting 10,000 students. While we are sad to see this event change, we are working with the city on other fun initiatives to bring the students across the bridge and introduce them to the surrounding community.
