Portland Children’s Dyslexia Center Festival of Trees Fundraiser
The Valley of Portland is honored to announce we will be participating and supporting the 1st annual Festival of Trees Fundraiser to benefit the Portland Children’s Dyslexia Center. This exceptional fundraiser continues the Northern Masonic Jurisdiction’s 25-year-long passionate commitment to helping children regain confidence and self-esteem through proven methods of reading instruction, tutoring, and dyslexia remediation.
The Portland Children’s Dyslexia Center is actively seeking tree sponsors, donations, and other forms of support, to maximize the positive impact of this important fundraiser. So why should you sponsor a tree? Here’s why! Aside from knowing you’ve empowered a child’s life for the better, sponsorship showcases you or your company. Rich benefits include advertising, marketing flyers, excellent exposure at the festival, social-media and email-generated marketing exposure, a tax deduction, and more.
Please consider lending your support! Here are the key details you’ll need.
Setup Dates: Monday, November 29 through Thursday, December 2
Kick-off Gala Date: Thursday, December 2 (the night before the festival’s opening); hours TBA. Sponsors and volunteers only.
