Join The Woodfin Greenway & Blueway Effort as an Event Sponsor!

The Catch The Wave Celebration is the primary annual fundraising event for the project.  Co-hosts of the event are several of the area’s leading community organizations – Asheville Greenworks, Connect Buncombe, French Broad River Academy, French Broad Riverkeeper/MountainTrue, and Riverlink

Proceeds from sponsorships support project development.  Friends of Woodfin Greenway & Blueway is proudly the fundraising partner of the Town of Woodfin and Buncombe County, the builders of the project.  A volunteer group, our very low overhead assures that proceeds benefit design and construction of the Greenway & Blueway.  Fiscal sponsor for the project is The YMCA of Western North Carolina who helps ensure proper gathering and investment of funds into the project.

We expect 250 attendees at the event. Promotional efforts will reach thousands.  The names and logos of sponsors will be featured at the event, in promotions, and we’ll heap gratitude and praise on sponsors in-person at the event and all year long.

Three sponsorship levels available: $250, $500, and $1000
