It's not clear to me what you are asking for here.

The ASF is a charity and thus does not sponsor events other than its own.
We sometimes help with getting the word out to our communities as a
"community sponsor". The links in your mail are missing so it is hard to
tell if this is something that would be broadly interesting to our
communities as a whole.
