Letter: Sponsors sought for 4-H trip to Chicago

Ohio State University Extension, Hardin County is seeking business and individual sponsors for their 4-H youth and family Cultural Immersion Experience to Chicago, Illinois--June 16-19, 2023,

The 56 participants would appreciate your financial support, and ask you to please consider becoming a trip sponsor.  Fundraising efforts will last through May 15th to help make the trip accessible and affordable for everyone. The total cost of the trip is $1,300 per person, and a portion of the trip is already being covered through grants written by our county 4-H and Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Educators.  Any assistance from local businesses and individuals will help make this trip possible for all, even a $5 donation will help with trip costs. Participants are being asked to pay $500 each and as a group, we are fundraising to cover the remaining expenses.

While on the trip, we will be doing a whirlwind tour of Chicago.  Some activities include Gangsters and Ghost Tour; 360 Observation Deck; Chinatown Tour; Leatherworking 101; Architecture and Fireworks Cruise; Lincoln Park Zoo, and a Chicago Cubs game @ Wrigley Field.    

All sponsors are invited to attend our Chicago Celebration on Thursday, June 22 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Hardin County Community Building at the Hardin County Fairgrounds to hear the highlights from our trip. Sponsors will be thanked in the program at this event.
