See the beautiful, custom sponsor buoys at the bottom of this page!

The Ocean Community Chamber of Commerce is the lead organization producing the Stonington Lobster Trap Tree, but as the saying goes, “it takes a village.”  We have many people and businesses who support our efforts. The OCCC has invested significant time and funds to research the project, identify and invite artists to participate, deliver/pick up buoys around the 2 state region, communicate with sponsors, apply for permits, develop this website, orchestrate a media campaign, host committee meetings and serve as the fiduciary agent to purchase lobster traps, buoys, lights, tie-wraps, etc.  The OCCC is grateful to the many individuals, businesses and organizations that share our enthusiasm for the project, and especially to those whom made a financial contribution.  Without them, it would just be a dream!  Community members and non-profits can sponsor a buoy for $150 and commercial businesses pay $200 or more. The sponsor fee includes the cost of a buoy and the cost to pay a local artist to paint what the sponsor wants, and clear coating of the buoy   Once the tree comes down, sponsors get to keep their buoy.  To show appreciation for their community spirit and generosity, we ask that you please support them with your patronage.
