2018 UMKC Sponsors Every koi show depends on the volunteer efforts of the home club and sponsorship by generous companies and individuals. There are many ways to sponsor the show. Individuals and companies can be an official show sponsor, sponsor individual trophies, buy an advertisement in our program or provide raffle/auction items. The Upper Midwest Koi Club is grateful for all contributions and will list sponsors in our show brochure and on our website. Thank you so much for your support!
