Today the Consumer’s Craft Cruiser announced its 2015 corporate donation and sponsorship schedule, which includes partnerships with several WNY region non-profit organizations. Donations to these groups include both in-kind and monetary distributions.

“We are really happy to support several noteworthy local causes this year through both sponsorships and in-kind donations of Craft Cruiser rentals,” said Matt Pokigo, president and co-owner of the Consumer’s Craft Cruiser. “While we can’t unfortunately support all those non-profits that are looking for fundraising assistance, our team feels really good about all those who we are able to support.” 

The following non-profits will be supported by the Consumer’s Craft Cruiser in 2015:

  • The American Diabetes Association Tour de Cure – raising funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy efforts.
