Businesses & Vendor Support

Corporate teams, vendors, Food Trucks, Basket donations, & Sponsors

We are looking for local business support in many ways to make this awareness event successful. If you can help us by doing any one of these things or more it will help us greatly. Thank you again for your consideration and support. We know how much local businesses already give back to the community, and without you out there working hard to serve others one of what we do would be possible. 


ALL OF THESE OPTIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS.


  1. Corporate Teams- By participating as a corporate team your employees can bond by creating a team agenda & finding ways to fund raise together. No matter how your employees decide to raise money it can count as a tax-deduction for your company. Corporate teams can pay the normal team registration fee to enter or pay as individuals.
  2. Vendors- We are in search of local small businesses, non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, or anyone interested to set up vendors spots. Here you can sell your products, educate event participants, and add to the fun of the event. The vendor fee is $50, we hope you will consider participating. No sales from vendors will be collected. Vendors can be present throughout the entirety of the event from 10am-6pm. Set up begins at 8am.
  3. Food trucks- We would love to showcase local food by having a variety of food trucks at the event. The event runs all day from 10am-6pm and there will be participants who will be hungry from all the activities. We hope you will consider registering your business for the event.
  4. Basket Donations- We are in search of a variety of baskets for our auction that will take place throughout the event. If your business can donate items for the following themes or just donate an entire basket that would help so much! BASKET THEMES: *Chocolate Lover's, Spa Day, Wines & Spirits, Glamorous Gutless Girls, Healthy Lifestyle, Photography, Family Fun, Arts & Culture, We love Erie, Coffee & Tea, & any other basket themes are welcomed.
  5. Sponsors- Event sponsors will have their logo/name on the back of our event t-shirts, on team signs, on the event banner, and will be included in any media coverage/marketing of the event. Sponsorship rates: Bronze: $100, Silver: $250, Gold: $500, Platinum: $1,000. 


Thank you again for your support. We are so grateful for your dedication to our community and others.
