Non-Profit Partners Program

This event is a non-profit event and we do not allow other non-partners to participate unless there is a mutual benefit to the event and the non-profit.

An example of our non-profit partners is our Volunteer program, where we select up to 3 organizations to provide clean up, booth sitters, soda sales, ambassadors, etc. These groups provide onsite management of their volunteers and are rewarded with a donation to their cause.

If you have an idea or suggestion of a benefit for your organization and the event, we would be interested.

Each organization will have a contract that is unique to their participation. We cannot allow any organizations that do not meet the event mission or goals.

Charitable organizations interested in providing volunteers and submitting applications to receive proceeds, send a written letter including contact information, the purpose of the organization, and use of the proposed funding to the following address:
