In order to defray the cost of planning an event of this magnitude for the Brooklyn community, we are in need of sponsors. There are several different levels available to fit everyone’s budget. Please click here for more information on sponsorship opportunities. Without our sponsors, this event would not be possible so please consider donating.
We are also looking for exhibitors that would be interested in participating in Picnic in the Park. The cost is $25 for Chamber members and nonprofit organizations. This is a great way to promote your business and/or product, while interacting with the community. Please click here for more exhibitor information.
If you are interested in being a sponsor, an exhibitor, or donating a raffle basket, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 216-635-4297.
