Hubbard said that for fundraising seed money and also for the group’s mission, the group relies heavily on sponsors at $ 100 in silver, $ 250 in gold and $ 500 in platinum, as well as ” to generous businesses and service providers who donate items for auction. The different levels of sponsors include T-shirts, event banner logos, event announcements, radio and Facebook ads, and free group tickets to the Hub’s Pub that evening.
“We are excited about the event, but also about all the good it can do for children and their families,” said Hubbard. “I just feel like our community is a tight knit community. It has been so important for me to have a positive impact on this world.
Years ago, when Hubbard started to be successful with Juice Plus, she realized she wanted to fundraise locally, for local families, where she knew where the money was going.

“So I went to my friend Jill Wagner and said that God had just put that on my heart. I mean, it was just crystal clear. I said, I want to do something this fall, let’s put something together.

This is where I come from. And it has continued to grow.
