We would really appreciate your help for this worthwhile event. This is a great opportunity to let the children and the community know that you care about our environment. Just contact us or send in a Sponsor form if you or your organization would be interested in contributing financial support, food or other supplies. In addition to this website, sponsors are recognized at the festival, in the festival booklet,  and through press releases and articles about the festival. We can also provide the CWF logo to you to put on your website or documents showing sponsorship.

The children, their parents and the schools really appreciate the opportunities that sponsors provide by helping to produce the annual festival.  Take a look at a few of the Thank You Cards we’ve received and you’ll see what we mean.

* Please note that much of the work that goes into the festival and this web site is done on an intermittent volunteer basis.  For that reason, this web site may only be updated a few times a year. Please accept our apologies in advance if the most recent list of sponsors has not been posted yet.
