Sponsorships

Meals on Wheels Western Michigan offers three separate sponsorship opportunities. These options are a great way for you or your organization to give back and join the fight against senior hunger and isolation. Meals on Wheels Western Michigan is excited to offer a comprehensive sponsorship opportunity where you can make one financial commitment for the year and be recognized at all our events. Our two major fundraising events for the year will be our “Chef’s Specialty” event held in the spring and our “More Than a Meal” luncheon in the fall.

For more information, please contact Development Administrator, Sarah Mariuz at smariuz@mowwm.org or 616-459-3111 x112.

Chef’s Specialty – June 14th

At this evening event, more than 250 supporters and friends come together in a fun atmosphere to support our community seniors living healthy and independently in their homes. This event offers hors d’oeurves, a cash bar, a cooking demonstration from our special honored chef, meaningful words from a client, and a few surprises along the way! Guests purchase tickets to attend, or come as guests of sponsors.

More Than a Meal – October 12th

Our “table hosted” event is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the impact Meals on Wheels Western Michigan continues to make in the lives of older adults. The event is held in the fall and has over 200 attendees. Our hosts consist of board members and other long-term supporters. The hosts invite those they know in the community who share our vision. There is no cost to attend, though a direct ask for support is made.
