Sponsorship opportunities for the 2015 Bark 'n Ball

Put your brand in front of Chicago's elite

dog-lovers and early literacy supporters

Kids, dogs, and books—that's what SitStayRead is all about, and that's what our supporters and volunteers care about.

SitStayRead has provided dog-centered literacy intervention programs to at-risk children in Chicago Public Schools and community centers since 2003. The organization began through the commitment of two volunteers and has since blossomed into a thriving, growing agency that is currently supported by the dedicated efforts of almost 200 volunteers.

If that's the audience you're trying to reach, consider one of these sponsorship packages for our biggest annual fund-raiser, the Bark 'n Ball, to be held Friday, March 27, at the Hotel Palomar in Chicago:
