Sponsorships and Donations


Shabbona's 4th of July Festival is small town America at it's finest.  Young and old join together to celebrate the birthday of this greatest of all nations.  This year our community will again come together in a day filled with friendship and laughter, featuring carnival rides, games, great food, contests and the parade.


It's our goal to make this event available to all at a minimal cost. However we need your financial support to make this possible.


Donations to the Shabbona Hometown Events Committee are what makes this local event great - from our main street parade, to the Festival. Without the continued support of generous businesses and citizens this would not be possible.


We offer 5 levels of sponsorship, each with escalating benefits for each tier as explained below:


Gold Star Sponsors are those benefactors who donate $500 or more. They receive a sponsorship sign at an activity. Their name appears in all advertising, is listed on our website, parade banner, and on our Festival T-shirts. Additionally a website link will be displayed if desired. This is our highest tier of support.


Red Star Sponsors are those who donate between $250 - $499. Their name appears in all advertising, is listed on our website, parade banner, and on our Festival T-shirts. Additionally a website link will be displayed if desired.


White Star Sponsors are those who donate between $100 - $249. Their name appears in all advertising, is listed on our website, and on our Festival T-shirts.


Blue Star Sponsors donate between $50 - $99. Their name appears in all advertising and will be listed on our website.


Hometown Sponsors donate between $1 - $49. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated. This level of support is for our community members that wish to help with smaller donations. Thier names will be listed on our website.


Please note that due to turnaround times on printed materials that donations must be received by June 14th in order to be included on t-shirts and banners.


Checks and money orders can be sent to our postal address, and questions about the donation process can be answered by sending an email to info@shecevents.com.  Thank you again for your continuing support.
