Help us make the 2019 Fall Carnival the most bountiful ever and support THES Thunderbirds as a family or business sponsor.
2019 Carnival Sponsorship Opportunities
Whole Harvest $500– choice of booth to underwrite, name/business logo displayed, social media love & recognition, 50 tickets, and heartfelt thanks from the THES community

Did you know that each year, THES works with our amazing community to bring holiday joy to the Thunderbird families who need it most? Through OPERATION THUNDERJOY, our Parent Support Specialist collects wishlists while parent volunteers find donors for hundreds of clothes, shoes, and gifts and make sure they’re appropriately wrapped, tagged and delivered. It’s a good amount of work, but it’s JOYFUL work—that will remind your kids that the real magic of the holidays is in giving, not receiving! Please contact Dianna Perez to sign up today, email@example.com, or 512.841.0855
