Warren Corporation, Makesense Foundation of Senegence International, Stewart, Evans, Stewart & Emmons, P.A., Katherine and William Kirk, Marine Bank & Trust Company, Sheila Marshall, Norris & Company Real Estate and Pamela Bennett of Senegence International.  Sponsor opportunities are available by calling (772) 563-9118.
