Sponsor A Special Event

Sponsorship is a great opportunity to share your voice as an agent of change while also receiving recognition for your support.

We currently have three special events that offer sponsorship opportunities:

  • Celebrating Inclusion & Achieving Independence Dinner is an annual dinner event in April that benefits ARISE. Your support of the dinner helps to ensure the future of ARISE services for generations to come.
  • ARISE & Ride for Ramps is an annual motorcycle ride, 5K run, and kids’ bike ride in June that raises money in support of the Oswego County Ramp Program. All proceeds from the event are used to buy construction materials that are used by volunteers to build ramps for families in need.
  • ARISE & Ride at the Farm is an annual Farm Festival in July that features a 25- and 12-mile bike ride as well as fun activities for the entire family. All proceeds from the event support the inclusive recreation programs at ARISE at the Farm.
  • UNIQUE Art & Literary Magazine is an annual publication that shares the talents of people with disabilities across Central New York. Sponsorship celebrates the creative spirit and raises awareness about disabilities by supporting the traveling community exhibitions and printing of the free publication.
