Sponsorship Opportunities

If you would like to join our list of Gala Sponsors, please contact Sue Tyson-Parker at 321 749-4684 for sponsorship opportunities. Promote your business during the holiday season and assist our league in raising funds for education and scholarship by donating a gift basket for our raffle.  Please respond with your commitment of sponsorship or basket donation by November 30 for recognition in our program.


In response to those of you who have asked what you can do this season for the residents of Genesis House, we would like to suggest that anyone wishing to contribute, to please bring to the Holiday Gala an unwrapped sweater or scarf for the mothers.  No particular color or style, in any size from small to extra large, simply something appropriate a young woman would wear.  Most women residents rely on the "free boutique" for second-hand clothes.  As women, we know how it lifts our spirits to have something new and stylish to wear!  Thank you, Oceanside members for once again reaching out to the residents of Genesis House at this special time of year!
