The First Annual First African Landing Vermont Commemoration will be on August 24, 2019 and we need your help. This commemoration serves to recognize the 400th anniversary of the landing of Africans in English-occupied North America in (late August) 1619. Could you please pitch in by sponsoring this event? This global commemoration celebrates the resilience and cultural contributions of African Americans over 400 the past years!
We’re excited about this first-ever event and from food, music, and dance and singing, to drumming and more, it is our hope that this commemoration embodies the proud, rich culture and traditions of our African heritage and communicates hope and promise for our collective future. We’re on a sprint to reach a $10K goal for this event and we really need your help to make that happen. You can choose from three options of sponsorship.
Baseline – For a $250 sponsoring gift we’ll publicly name your organization as a sponsor and save you one seat at the event.
