Dear Green Fest supporters,
Your generosity over the past years has been overwhelming, considering the troubled times many of our neighbors are experiencing.
We are committed to bring this free festival to the community so citizens can learn about the many opportunities available to save money, energy and our planet.
We cannot present a successful Green Fest without the help of like-minded people who are able to give something to the cause.
The festival operates entirely on donations and volunteers. Monetary donations are used for printing, advertising and production costs.
The first Green Fest, held in May 2009, was so well received it humbled us all. We had hit on something that the community embraced. After that, it was understood that, come the Saturday before Mother’s Day, we would be greeting thousands of men, women and children in one of the nicest, most meaningful events presented in Shafer Park.
We did not do this alone. Our families stood behind us and worked beside us. More than 85 vendors showed up that first year and 100 last year. Scores of volunteers pitched in all day and people from the entire community devoted some of their weekend to attend “Boonsboro Green Fest”.
One of the most encouraging things that has happened these last two years was the support that we received from our sponsors and door prize donors.
They wanted to be a part of the project and they gave what they could. Monetary donations ranged from $5 to $300, while donated prizes ranged from a modest shopping bag to a night at Inn BoonsBoro, Nora Roberts’ upscale hotel in downtown Boonsboro.
If you are able to support the Green Fest by being a sponsor or donating a door prize, please step forward.
We will recognize you on this page and in our program brochure, which will be distributed the day of the festival.
Levels of giving are: Green Leaf ($300 & over), Gold Leaf ($200-$299), Silver Leaf ($100-$199), Bronze Leaf ($50-$99) and Green Fest Patron ($49 & under). Please click on “Sponsor Form” in column at right.
Your generosity will be appreciated by the entire community.
Thank you and best regards from a grateful…
