Here are ways YOU can get involved!

1. Become a Sponsor!

We have sponsorship opportunities ranging from our exclusive Cabernet Sponsor ($1,500) to our Silver Mug Sponsor ($300). Each level has their own benefits, with the larger sponsorship with the most perks. Email us at raiseyourspirits@lisainc.org for more information on how to become a sponsor and how your contribution effects the lives of the youth in LISA, Inc.'s care. Download a PDF version of the sponsor sign-up sheet.

2. Advertise in our Event Booklet!

Each attendee at our event will be given an event booklet and it is the perfect way to have your company featured in the hands of each of our guests' hands! We offer full page, half page and quarter page ads so you can advertise your business in the way that suits you best. Download a PDF version of the advertisment sign-up sheet. 

3. Be a Vendor at our Event!

We are always looking for restaurants and other businesses who would like to be vendors on the day of the event. We are expecting around 250 guests who will snack on bite-sized and "hand friendly" portions. In the past food vendors have offered a variety of samplings.  This is an easy yet entertaining to get a new fan base for your goods! Download a PDF version of our vendor descriptions here. 

4. Attend our Wine Tasting Event!

Every year we strive to entertain more guests at our Wine Tasting event. In 2014, we were able to raise $23,000 which provided LISA, Inc. youth with renovated living quarters, special workshops and recreational events. Attendees enjoyed three hours of a variety of finger foods,  wine/beer/spirits tastings, music, raffles and auctions. Presale tickets are only $50 so make sure you get one for you and one for a friend! Fill out your information below to purchase your ticket online.
