HemlockFest Sponsors

You can help save the Hemlocks, receive recognition for your
organization, and feel some well-deserved satisfaction by becoming
a Supporting Sponsor for HemlockFest.  Donations and festival
proceeds will be used to help us to continue to raise public awareness
of the Hemlock problem and promote action; provide ongoing
support for the efforts of all three labs in Georgia that raise predatory
beetles to combat the HWA on public land; assist private land owners
and public agencies in managing the health of their Hemlock trees;
and facilitate other projects that benefit north Georgia, Lumpkin
County, its residents and visitors.

Silent Auction

If you would like to sponsor a Silent Auction item or service, please
contact Neville Harris at(540) 921-3444 or contact Mr. Harris via
email:  Neville Harris.

Examples of great goodies for the Silent Auction range from dinners
at wonderful restaurants, weekend getaways, and the royal treatment
at day-spas to one-of-a kind artwork, hand-made quilts, and unique
gifts.  Festival-goers can see or read about the items all during the
event and record their bids.  The winner of each item is announced at
the end of the festival (but need not be present to win).

Materials Needed

Contributions don't always have to be in the form of money.  If you'd
care to donate or lend materials, here are some of the things we
typically need.

mulch (10 pickup truck loads)  - delivered if possible
fire wood (seasoned hardwood, no green stuff)
fat wood and fire lighters (no liquid fire starter)
two large sturdy wheel barrows
portable kerosene or propane heaters and extra fuel
rolls of duct tape
plywood, lumber, and other building materials
heavy-duty outdoor extension cords
arts and crafts materials for Kids' Nature Village
seasonal items like pumpkins, bundles of corn stalks, potted mums,
etc. to decorate the stage area
lamps, sturdy coffee tables and end tables for the band tent
contractor trash bags 35 gal or larger
