5) This is an outdoor event and will be held rain or shine, so plan accordingly.
6) Timing of social media post publication will be at the sole discretion of the Sterling Foundation. Posts may be made in conjunction with the mention of additional sponsors. If you wish to be tagged in social media posts, please be certain to include links to your various accounts.
