Support our Sponsors
Every year, Fenwick asks local businesses to sponsor our events in order to raise funds for tuition assistance for deserving students. Time and again, they have supported us and our students, helping to ensure our children receive an excellent education. As our community faces a difficult road ahead, it’s our turn to lend a hand and help them weather this storm.
Below is a list of the businesses who have served as recent sponsors of the Blackfriars Gala, the Friar Classic Golf Outing, the Pass the Torch Golf Outing, and Athletics. In the upcoming weeks and months, while being respectful of local government orders to maintain social distancing, we strongly encourage you to give your business to the sponsors listed below. Together we’ll get through this, and we’ll be a stronger community because we lifted each other up.
