Become a Sponsor

The Karen Foundation for MS is excited to invite you to partake in a mutually beneficial opportunity to expand the awareness and brand name of your company while helping many people in our region living with Multiple Sclerosis.

Our 17th Annual fundraiser will take place on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Willoughby Brewing Company in downtown Willoughby, Ohio.  Participating as a sponsor will provide your business with visibility for your products and services, and the satisfaction that you have helped many people in Northeast Ohio afflicted by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and their families obtain invaluable respite and home care services.

The Karen Foundation is recognized as the largest third-party contributor to the National MS Society, Ohio Buckeye Chapter Respite Program. Last year's party drew over 400 people throughout the day, and made it possible to help more than 150 families in the area.  

One especially important part of the success of this event is our sponsorship program. It is our hope that you can help ensure the success of this year's fundraiser by being a sponsor for our cause. Our 'Presenting Sponsor" will be mentioned in all Karen Foundation commercials, public service announcements, and on-air chatter on our radio partners, ESPN Cleveland 850 WKNR and 92.3 the Fan for 2 straight weeks leading up to the event, as well as additional exposure leading up to and through the event. 

Since initiating this event seventeen years ago, it has grown exponentially, as has our media coverage.  All 3 major news outlets and Cleveland.com cover our event every year. The Karen Foundation is a 501(c)3 tax exempt charity organization, and your sponsorship will be fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We hope to count on your support this year to bring help to even more families in this area who are struggling with this disease. We know that you have a limited amount of money for charitable donations each year, and we appreciate your consideration.

Together we can make a difference.
