The Wichita Parks Foundation is currently seeking sponsors to help support this year's Red, White & BOOM!  The Foundation is raising money privately to put on the celebration, so this is truly a community-based event.  There are a variety of opportunities available, including presenting sponsors, stage sponsors, fireworks watch zone sponsors and banner opportunities.  Contact Danielle Johnson, Planning Committee Chair at info@wichitaparksfoundation.org, for more information or to schedule a face-to-face meeting to discuss those opportunities.
