WYWL has two flagship fundraisers each year: CraftWestport and the Minute Man Race. Profits from fundraisers are distributed to charities in lower Fairfield county through our Grants program. We also offer individual levels of sponsorship for CraftWestport and the Minute Man Race, as well as a package sponsorship for both fundraisers.
