Sponsors are a key piece in allowing us to continue creating events that benefit our local community's children and seniors. These events provide education, emotional therapy, and a unique experience. We welcome individual and corporate sponsorships to help fund these events. Those that sponsor, if they wish, will be highlighted here on our website and at any events that are funded by their sponsorships.

We welcome, among others, individuals, civic groups, charitable organizations, PTAs, service groups, and home school groups to donate or sponsor programs!
