 How to Help

We have various opportunities for individuals and businesses to contribute to these events and our community! Check out our different sponsorship packages below.

These events are funded by generous sponsorship, donations, and volunteer efforts. Sponsors are also able to promote themselves to the community and market themselves through event promotions while volunteers have an opportunity to network!
