2017 Become a Corporate Sponsor

Dear Local Business Owner,

My name is Joseph Lenefonte. I am the chairperson of the corporate sponsorship program for the 2017 Greater Youngstown Italian Fest.

With support from local businesses, we have been able to donate to local charities such as Second Harvest Food Bank, Rich Center for Autism, St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen, Rescue Mission and Beatitude House. We have donated over $125,000.00 to various charities since moving our Fest downtown. All of our money is donated to local charities in the greater Youngstown area thus staying local.

This will be our 32nd anniversary of the Fest and our Fest Chairman is John Rossetti, Jr. Our Fest will be held on August 4th, 5th and 6th, 2017 at the Central Square, downtown Youngstown drawing people from the tri-county area. Our headliner this year is Angelo Babbaro.

The Italian Heritage Foundation is a 501C3 non-profit organization. Scholarships are awarded to students that will attend Youngstown State University. These scholarships are provided by private donors and The Italian Heritage Foundation.

Your contributions have been a major reason our Fest has always been a huge success. We appreciate this greatly and hope you will continue to support our causes.

Please consider joining our sponsor family this year. Enclosed is an outline of the different levels of sponsorship programs along with a contract. All contracts must be paid by June 1, 2017 in order to insure that you will be included in all advertising. I know that together we can make the 32nd year of The Greater Youngstown Italian Fest the success that we are so proud of in this valley.

Thank you so much for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.
