Sponsor or Host Events
Would you or your group like to host an event?
We would be thrilled to work with you! Rise is always looking for new community-building events – no idea too big or too small! If you are interested in organizing or participating in one of the following events, or creating a new one, please contact the Rise office 609-443-4464.
Let’s talk if you have an idea to bring our community together. Here are some examples we love:
Dunk A Ram (August-October)
The Hightstown High School Football team participates in the ‘Dunk A Ram’ event during the annual Hightstown Harvest Fair. Tickets are sold and canned food is collected to have the opportunity to send the football player of your choice into the dunk tank. Area dignitaries including the Mayor of Hightstown, the High School Football Coaches and the Rise Summer Camp Coordinator can also be seen in the dunk tank! Proceeds benefit the Rise Food Pantry.
Empty Bowls Fundraiser (March-April)
“Empty Bowls” fundraiser sponsored by The Hightstown Cultural Arts Commission to support Rise, a Community Service Partnership. Each bowl is handcrafted by artist Adam Welch, local eateries donate soup to fill the bowls and everyone brings a bowl home at the end! All of the event’s proceeds are donated to the Rise Pantry.
Volunteer Appreciation (April)
We depend on our volunteers everyday! Rise recognizes the importance of our volunteers during National Volunteer Appreciation week. Join with us to share our appreciation for volunteers who make it possible for Rise to help individuals and families in need within our community.
Latino Festival (August)
We love to celebrate culture in our community. This annual Latino Festival brings together local and regional artists who showcase their work, incredible food and music. We’re always looking for people to share their heritage and talent, volunteers and sponsors. Please contact us if you’d like to get involved.
