All those who choose to make a love donation will receive a swag bag at the picnic - just show ID or bring your ticket printout. Please consider a  non-perishable food or diaper donation if you want to donate but are currently low on funds. We will deliver all items donated to a local food pantry. Entries made with pantry donations also qualify for a swag bag. Please choose the relevant ticket type so we can get enough supplies.

We also have a free option for those for whom cost is a barrier.

For corporate donation opportunities or personal donations over $100, please email for details.
