Why would you participate?
To show why you love Albuquerque.
To show your support for Duke City Fix.
To share with the rest of the community.
To be recognized in our materials and advertising.
If you really want to participate but aren't artistically inclined, can't sing a tune, knit, or otherwise come up with anything worth eating. IT'S OK! You can volunteer, ORRRR you can also donate
to our cause to help make this an amazing event! Any monetary sponsorship would help pay for printing of materials, beverages at either event, and help Verb themselves keep their doors open to do all the great work that they do! Feel free to contact me
for more info if you are interested in being a sponsor.
Duke City Fix has done a lot of great things for a lot of people, and this is a great way to show how it (or the Duke City itself) has inspired and changed you. We'd love to see this community come together in a new way, and can't wait to see the outcome!
