“The Venice Chamber of Commerce enthusiastically champions continuing this tradition and ask for your help. Invest in your community’s future and sponsor a jacket today!” the Chamber said. 

Sponsoring one jacket costs $125 while sponsoring two is $250. In addition, any amount can be accepted as a donation.  Pledge directly online at: venicechamber.net/jackets. Checks are payable to Venice Chamber of Commerce, PO Box 202, Venice 90294.
