First Night State College Support
First Night State College, produced by the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, has many components and activities, thereby yielding an array of sponsorship partnerships in all budget ranges.
In addition to corporate sponsorships, the event is funded by the sale of admission buttons, race entry fees, food vendor fees, grants, individual donations (both online and on site), and the First Night annual fund.
There are also countless ways for individuals and organizations to volunteer their time and talents, including checking admission buttons at a performance venue, selling First Night merchandise, conducting an art and craft or performance workshop, and helping clean up after the event.
