Help This Year’s Festival Get Sponsored!

February 13th, 2018 by

The 2017 was the first year that we actively sought out businesses to sponsor the Ethnic Food Festival. We sent out letters a couple months ahead of time, but quickly found that many businesses determine what they will be doing with their charitable funds in the first quarter of the year.

This year we are starting early!

Linked to this blog is the sponsorship letter that the Festival Committee drafted. Please send it to any businesses that may be interested in contributing. In return, they will receive ad space in the festival flyer. We are also willing to work with them for other sponsorship opportunities such as banners.

Please use the link below to track any business you have contacted.

Contact Spreadsheet

Thank you for your assistance! With your help, the 2018 festival will be our best festival yet!
