Corporate Sponsorship levels are tailored to the coat theme and vary from $1,500 for the Red Coat (Premier) Sponsor to the Brown Coat (Bronze) Sponsor at $250. Individuals and families may also contribute funds as Scarves & Mittens Sponsors. In addition to financial sponsorships, new and gently used children's coats are being collected.
