Interested in Sponsorship Opportunities?


There are several ways you can support our cause:

  • Become a monetary sponsor – We are a charity event so the more money we bring in, the more we are able to provide to the charities we support!
  • Donate in-kind gifts for raffles – We incentivize our food drive with raffle tickets, so the more raffle prizes we have to give away, the more donations we’re likely to get!
  • Donate in-kind gifts for event infrastructure – With a high-tech event like this, infrastructure can be expensive.  Our biggest need is extension cables (25’, 50’, 75’, 100’, 12-14 gauge) and power strips.
  • Donate in-kind gifts/services for event use – This could be custom-printed signage, photobooths, custom merchandise, etc.
