Jill Merriam supports local non-profits by becoming Title Sponsor to Milford Oyster Fest 2012
"The Milford Oyster Fest is completely run by volunteers which is truly amazing," said Jill Merriam, Dealer For The People. "The dedication of the hundreds of staff and volunteers makes this event hum, and the local non-profits benefit from their hardwork and dedication. If our donation helps make their jobs easier, I am happy to do it."
The Milford Oyster Festival is the largest one-day festival in Connecticut featuring over 50 local non-profits that are a part of the Festival every year and nearly all of them join year after year. For many of these non-profit organizations, the Festival is their primary fundraiser for the year and allows them the ability to meet their budgets and fund each of their charitable causes. To describe the extent to which these causes are fulfilled as a result of the money they raise at the Festival is beyond the scope of this proposal, but rest assured it is more far reaching than most realize.
About Milford Oyster Festival: The Milford Oyster Festival has grown over the last 30 years into the largest one-day Festival in Connecticut that attracts over 50,000 people a year from the area and around the state who want to enjoy the sights, sounds, tastes and history of Milford at a family-oriented Festival. Designed to raise money for, and bring awareness to the local non-profit organizations through a Festival that celebrates the important history the oyster industry once had on the City of Milford.
