Sponsor An Event!

Northern Wasco County Parks & Recreation District has many programs and events that benefit our community. Sponsors allow the District to offer the highest quality programs and events. A sponsorship also provides various marketing opportunities for your business at a relatively low cost. We have numerous opportunities (just a few are listed below) to choose from and each of them allow you to do something positive for our local children and the community. You can find the sponsor benefits listed below.

 Contact our Recreation Coordinator, Stacey Ihrig, to become a sponsor.
