St. Rita Parish Festival organizers are looking for sponsors for the three-day festival, which will help raise money to support a number of local charities. The festival is on Aug 21, 22 and 23. For over 50 years, the St. Rita Parish Festival has provided quality summer family entertainment for tens of thousands of Racine area residents. A portion of the proceeds from the festival help support local charitable work including homeless, family and women focused organizations that provide home repairs/building as well as food centers, healthcare, parenting, pregnancy, and educational opportunities. Sponsors will have access to thousands of parish festival attendees and the contribution is 100 percent tax deductible. For more information, please call Michael Quill at (262) 909-5609. The deadline is Aug. 3.
