Fundraising events are fundamental to CEF's annual fundraising. Each year, we offer recurring events like our Brews & Bros Craft Beer Festival, Chocolate Walk in Claremont Village, a Spring event, and our annual Prius Raffle in partnership with Claremont Toyota, as well as smaller partner-run events throughout the year. If your business would like to sponsor a CEF fundraising event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
