Sponsor the Event!


We invite you to join us as an event sponsor for this very special event as we honor:

Lou Bernieri and Rich Gorham

The Award Ceremony offers significant opportunities for partners and sponsors to join the History Center in honoring Lou Bernieri and Rich Gorham. Sponsorship gifts also help to support our vision to be the most distinguished small-city archive in New England, and a model for how such centers can survive, thrive and add value in the information age. The Center will be known for galvanizing Lawrence around its own dynamic history and potential and for engaging all those it touches -- in Lawrence and beyond -- in building the shared immigration story that is truly the story of this country.

All sponsors will be listed in the event program and will be recognized on our web site and Facebook page, both reaching thousands every day. Higher level sponsors will receive complimentary tickets to the event. Please see below for further details.
