DO YOU NEED INSURANCE?

Yes. we need a COI from you and all vendors. If you work with Canard, this will not be an issue as they umbrella you under theirs.

 If you choose to bring in an outside company, or bring in other vendors we do require that you shall obtain and maintain, at your own cost and expense, and provide evidence of liability insurance in an amount approved by God's Love We Deliver (but in no event in an amount less than [$2,000,000]) which provides coverage for liabilities which arise out of or result from the conducting of the Event.

If you need to apply for a COI, you can reach out to K&K Insurance regarding securing the special event policy.  Their phone number is 877-648-6404 and the website is :https://www.kandkinsurance.com/sites/events/Pages/Short-Term-Special-Events.aspx

For a weekend event, they can be dropped off Friday and picked up Monday.
