Event Sponsorship

Learn how you can contribute to Run on the River, Parks After Dark and our other Fundraising Events

The Astoria Parks, Recreation and Community Foundation along with Astoria Parks and Recreation hosts three fundraisers each summer.  Proceeds from these events provide scholarships for local individuals and families to access health and wellness opportunities. Last year over $30K was raised and nearly 1000 individuals were awarded scholarships in our community, thanks to your support.

Run on the River is a Half Marathon, 10K and 5K along the Riverwalk. It is title sponsored by Buoy Beer Co but also runs on the generous contributions from the local businesses who donate prizes, mile marker sponsorships and more. This event draws hundreds of runners and visitors, locally and from across the country. Sponsorship levels vary from $200 (mile-marker) to $2500-sponsorships, with associated levels of business-promotion and marketing for donors.



Parks After Dark is an amazing community event held in McClure Park overlooking the Columbia River. On the 3rd Saturday of June, July and August the Foundation sets up a movie with popcorn and beer. This is a great way to connect with your customer-base and announce imminent business events. $500 sponsorship offers businesses the opportunity to personally share upcoming business promotions on the big-screen before the evening’s featured movie at McClure Park.



Ft. George Benefit Night held on one of the last Tuesdays in October, this event draws locals and visitors upstairs for beer, pizza and a silent auction with fitness & sports-related prizes. Your prize-donation will be a key marketing piece for attendees.


We appreciate your consideration and your help to support our community, families, and parks and recreation.
