THANK YOU TO OUR DREAM CHALLENGE SPONSORS

"WE REFUSE TO BELIEVE THERE ARE INSUFFICIENT FUNDS IN THE GREAT VAULTS OF OPPORTUNITY OF THIS NATION." from Dr. King's I Have a Dream Speech.

The Plant City MLK Festival will be celebrating 31 years this January. This feat of longevity wouldn't be possible without the support of neighborhoods we serve, community churches, and both local and corporate businesses that choose Plant City and surrounding Tampa Bay as home. This year there is a sense of excitement. We are seeking the ONE TIME BIG "ASK" this year. We have unfinished business to complete regarding the Bing House Museum.

We are humbled and honored to have the support of DREAM CHALLENGE sponsors noted. We are "Committed To Excellence" and striving to ensure Plant City is a place where all can raise their families.

There are sponsorship opportunities for every possible level. Click on the above link or call us for custom packages.
