The Sockeye Run Car Show & Shine is fueled by generous sponsors. As well, sponsorship money provides the Richmond Lions Club with valuable funding allowing us to support the many people that are not as fortunate as us. We focus on helping needy children and families, within our own community.
Richmond Lions members work very hard to present the Sockeye Run on show day and work countless hours contacting former sponsors and potential new sponsors. We are a diverse group of individuals but are like minded when it comes to helping people that need it, thus all the hard work turns into fun. Sponsor support is what has kept the Sockeye Run operating all these years!
If you or your organization would like to be a sponsor for Sockeye Run 2017 please email us. We will be pleased to provide information of the various sponsorship levels available and the benefits to you or your organization.
Here are a number of people you may want to contact within our club.
The Sockeye coordinator may be the first guy you want to e-mail with any questions about the Sockeye run.
Or contact us by postal mail at:

The club president is where the buck stops. If nobody else can help you with an issue then the club president is the person to turn to.
