Greeley-Evans School District 6 is seeking sponsors for the third annual School Kickoff Community Celebration, to be held Saturday, August 13 at Island Grove Regional Park.
Funded totally through private donations, the 2015 event raised enough money to give away 2,200 backpacks filled with school supplies, serve free lunch to 2,500 and provide more than 80 onsite $10 sports physicals for students. The celebration also featured four student entertainment groups performing throughout the day and more than 60 community booths and activities such as games, free balloons and face painting. It is estimated more than 3,000 people attended the event.
The goal for this year’s School Kickoff Community Celebration is to give away at least 2,300 backpacks filled with school supplies and provide lunch for 2,500 participants. More sponsors are needed to reach that goal.
Any business or organization interested in becoming a sponsor for the event should contact District 6 Director of Communications Theresa Myers at (970) 348-6003 or at email@example.com.
