Without the support of sponsors in the community, the Festival of Trees & Lights and its life-giving support for the hospital would be impossible. This is your opportunity to be a sponsor of one of the highest profile fundraisers in the region and become active in a cause from which everyone benefits.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor of the Festival of Trees & Lights, contact: Heather Singleton or  (502) 629-2125

Businesses and other organizations can help too. Be creative! Design a tree that includes items from your business, such as gift certificates and product samples, to showcase your products or services to festival attendees. You can decorate the tree yourself, or we can provide a designer to make your tree gorgeous before it is sold to the public. Your tree and business signage will be on display at the festival.

Pre-purchase or sponsor a tree and choose a custom design in colors or a theme that will complement your home or office. After being displayed at the festival, we will deliver the tree right to your door!
