Calling All Festival Sponsors!

July 24th, 2017 by

St. Basil’s Ethnic Festival is not only a joyous celebration of our cultural diversity, but an avenue to share our faith with our community. However, our festival is no small expense. We are looking to partner with local businesses to make this year’s festival a great success. We are calling on all our members to reach out to businesses to sponsor this years festival. Sponsorships will not only offset the cost of the festival, but businesses will get exposure through ads in our festival brochure, which is handed out to everyone who attends the event.

Below is a link to the sponsorship letter that you can give to potential sponsors. It contains contact information and sponsorship levels.

Thank you for your support!
