Community Sponsor: (unlimited): $500 – $2,500

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience this magical event to get them into the festive spirit. Although entrance to the festival is a nominal donation per person, unfortunately not everyone in our community is able to afford any extras outside of their necessities for their families. With the help of generous sponsors, we can help bring these families to the zoo to experience the wonder of our winter city and enjoy the festivities. Our goal is to share these tickets with other non-profit organizations, as well as with schools who are comprised of predominantly lower-income families. The following packages are available for sponsorship:

• 100 tickets for $500 ($750 Value)
• 250 tickets for $1,250 ($1,875 Value)
• 500 tickets for $2,500 ($3,750 Value)

Your generosity will provide you with the following:

• Prominent recognition of sponsorship for the entire festival on-site, online
• Recognition in all festival mail-outs, on the festival website, and email correspondence regarding the festival
• Your company name on the letter that accompany the donated tickets to the recipient
• Includes 10 complimentary tickets for staff and/ or clients to the event
