Platinum and Gold Sponsors

Additional Sponsors

The Schaeffer Eye Center Crawfish Boil has always included a charitable aspect and that will continue with CityFest and celebrate the giving nature of Birmingham. Camp Smile-A-Mile will remain a key charity and we will again honor a camper with the 2014 Marissa Feigelson Award for that child’s fight against cancer. In 2013, the event partnered with Miles College to create the 50 Years Forward scholarship for students entering their senior year that have encountered financial hardship and are at risk for not graduating. The festival is excited to continue this partnership in 2014.
