Your support is appreciated and recognized according to levels of sponsorships, which could include:

  • Interview of staff member or company profile on our blog

Catering and Food Donations for Volunteers
On average between 50 and 400 volunteers are on hand to help make all of the events at the Shrine a success. Volunteers are very important to us, so we like to treat them right, especially providing meals, snacks, and beverages during their hours of service. We invite restaurants, caterers, bakeries, grocery stores, and food/beverage corporations to donate prepared/catered foods for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, as well as snacks and beverages. All donations will be prominently acknowledged.

For more information about sponsorship opportunities or making a donation, please contact Elia Rivera at 847-294-1806 x 121 or development@solg.org.
