Sponsor in a variety of ways
Sponsorship opportunities are now open for this year's Chuck Jones Big Draw scheduled for Sunday, October 13 from 1 to 4pm. The Chuck Jones Big Draw is the Center's fall fundraiser and your support will help sustain the Center's programs for youth, seniors, and those on the autism spectrum.
You are invited to join in the fun and support our Creative Community as a CHUCK JONES BIG DRAW Sponsor.
The Chuck Jones Big Draw, a FUNdraiser for Creativity, is a family-focused event with a carnival atmosphere. Throughout our 4,000 square-foot Center, kids of all ages collaborate and parents enjoy creativity stations for mask-making, toy-making and lots more. AND! You’ll be able to collaborate on your very own stop-motion animated short cartoon, filming the action against a giant background using some of Chuck Jones’s favorite characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, and the Road Runner.
As a Chuck Jones Big Draw Sponsor your tax-deductible contribution will help underwrite event costs. Proceeds of this fun and unique event support The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity and our innovative and impactful community outreach programs for at-risk youth, after school-programs, workshops for young people on the autism spectrum, and seniors with early-onset dementia.
Your Sponsorship will be acknowledged in our Chuck Jones Big Draw program, on our website, on event signage, and from the podium on the day of the event.
Download your Chuck Jones Big Draw Sponsorship form here. Simply fill this out, then call or email us and we will handle everything. Please note that your donation must be received no later than September 30 to ensure acknowledgement.
The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, a public charity founded in 1999 in Orange County California, fosters and teaches creative thinking, the thinking behind problem-solving. Creativity is like a muscle in your brain- it needs exercise to get and stay healthy. The Center serves as a “gymnasium for the brain”. Exercise your genius!
