Sponsorship

We need your support now more than ever to continue this work. Our small businesses and local organizations continue to struggle through the pandemic. We had to cancel nearly all of our events in 2020, and those events were critical fundraisers for our organizations. Your sponsorship will highlight you and/or your business or organization as a champion of Uptown.
