REQUEST CORNELIA AND/OR COUCH APPEARANCES
The Cornelia and Couch costumed mascot characters educate and excite children (ages 5 - 11) about the connections between fresh food, exercise and local farms. They play a key role in SMADC's educational programs geared for children. They also function as lighthearted ambassadors for SMADC. Accordingly, careful consideration is given to how they interact with the public.
Cornelia and Couch costumed characters are available on a limited basis to make appearances throughout Southern Maryland and the Washington DC metro area at both non-profit and for-profit venues and events. See fees listed below for for-profit venues. The characters may be booked for select events outside this region for a fee. Please contact us.
SMADC makes the characters available for certain regional events and other functions held by schools, hospitals and certain non-profits at no charge. (SMADC covers the cost of gas, van rental, performer fees, etc.)
SMADC makes the characters available for groups, businesses, companies, fundraisers and other private events as its schedule allows, provided the event/function is compatible with SMADC's mission and Cornelia's message. You are asked to cover the expenses associated with the character's appearance.
