The Permanent Columbus Day Committee relies on the communities financial help to make the parade a success each year. While many groups march for free, many others charge fees which we pay for with community provided donations.

The communities of Westerly and Stonington have provided donations for the last 69 years and any amount is greatly appreciated. We honor all of these people and businesses each year by marching behind the "Friends of Columbus" banner.

We also have two sponsorship levels available for community members wishing to donate $500.00 or more.

Corporate Sponsorship - $1,000.00
Band Sponsorship - $500.00

For specific information on each type of sponsoship, please contact Jeffrey or Beth Frenette at or

Donations of any type should be mailed to:

The Permanent Columbus Day Committee
P.O. Box 137
Westerly, RI 02891
