The Duneland Exchange Club is a non-profit organization that serves the Duneland area through a variety of projects; most importantly the prevention of child abuse. The Family Frog Hunt is one of three annual fund-raisers to help fund our community service projects. Proceeds from these events go towards The Blue Ribbon Child Abuse Awareness Campaign, youth recognition events, crime, fire and safety programs in the Duneland schools and other community service programs. The club is looking for business sponsors to underwrite the cost of these programs and events. There are several different levels of sponsorship available including individual event sponsorships.
