Event Sponsorship Information

The 9th Annual Free Ice Cream Social benefitting Kate’s Kart will be held on Saturday, June 17, 2017, at Riverside Gardens in Leo.

Last year’s event drew over 2,000 people, and we are expecting an even larger crowd this year!

This annual celebration, which is our one and only fundraiser of the year, is a family-oriented event designed to raise community awareness of Kate’s Kart and help us continue providing free books to children at area hospitals. The organization, which has over 100 volunteers, will be accepting monetary donations and donations of new children’s books at the event.

The ice cream social is a free event, open to the public, that includes live family-friendly music and entertainment, free kids’ games and carnival-style rides, and of course FREE ICE CREAM!

We are asking your organization to thoughtfully consider sponsorship, either through financial support or the donation of time, volunteers, prizes, etc. (Kate’s Kart is a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, so financial donations are tax deductible.)
