Sponsorship Opportunities

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available to support the event. We invite you to include colleagues, business associates and friends when you consider your level of support.

We hope that you will join us to help WCC students stay in the classroom and continue on their educational journey.  The pandemic has hit WCC students harder than most and we are seeing a 200 percent increase in requests for Student Emergency Funding mostly for food shortage, technology and unexpected utilities.
