The Creation of the Sunflower Family Festival

Started in 2019, the idea was brought to life to help raise money for Bree's Gift, in hopes of doing one adoption a year. The theme behind the event was family focused but also included all the things Bree loved to do. We wanted to give the community an opportunity to enjoy a family fun day while also raising money to help families bring their child home. 


Exceeding Expectations

The first event in 2019 was such a success and we raised over $60,000 well exceeding our expectations. The community support for sponsoring this event, as well as showing up and spending the day with us, was just overwhelming. Seeing all the families enjoy the day with each other brought us so much joy.  With all the support showing up the first two years we quickly outgrew the venue.  

It Takes a Village

We are so greatful for all the support over the past years. Your passion and dedication to support our mission is the reason the Sunflower Family Fesitval is so succesful. All the adoptions we have assisted in would not be possible without your support for our event. It takes the board a whole year to get this event ready but without your support the outcome would not be the same. 



Through this event we raise $60,000 on average on the day alone and over $200,000 in our festival sponsor campaign. We have over 80 volunteers that take the time out of their day to help and we are so grateful for them. We average around 3,000 people attending our festival each year. Fundraising and planning for the next year event starts as soon as the last one ends. Each adoption we are a part of is because of this event.
