PERCHIN FOR MS - BECOME A SPONSOR!
6 years 6 months ago #114
In March of 2011, I held the first Annual PERCHIN FOR MS Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Simcoe. The event was a huge success with 78 teams from all over Ontario and the USA competing for cash and prizes. The event also raised $4000.00 for MS research and support towards a cure. I hope to make the 2nd Annual derby an even bigger success!
The 2nd Annual PERCHIN FOR MS Fishing Derby will be held next year on March 3, 2012. Again this event's main purpose is to help raise awareness and funds for MS Research and a Cure, while also promoting the sport of fishing, hunting and living our lives in our great outdoors. This derby is to show people both with and without disabilities that life goes on and that we can all still get out and enjoy the activities we love so much!
I am contacting you on behalf of the PERCHIN FOR MS Fishing Derby. To make this event an even bigger success, the derby needs your support and the sponsorship from our community. Our prizes at this year's event were excellent, offering portable huts, fish cameras, fish finders, Charter fishing trips, Survival suits, hunting gear, cash and many other wonderful products, but we need to get bigger and better to attract a larger crowd.
To do this, I am hoping you will consider being a part of this event with your sponsorship. Attached to this is a flyer I have done up in preparation of this year's event. We are starting early in preparation of next year's event and are seeking sponsorship of our TOP PRIZES, the EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION PRIZE, BIG FISH CONTEST PRIZE and SILENT/LIVE auction prizes, as well as donations of products and services for our prize table!
How it works: The following are the things we are looking for as support this year. As stated, we depend on you the community as 100% of all money raised goes to MS Research and finding a cure!!
Our TOP SPONSORS will be provided prime advertising at our event and links on our website (www.perchinforms.com). We will also proudly show our support and partnerships while attending the Spring Fishing Show in Toronto and other shows or media.
TOP PRIZES - Top Prizes will be provided to the TOP 10 teams. NOTE: These are teams and we require TWO PRIZES of the same type and value. We are preferring to have our Top Prizes be valued at $300 or more for each prize.( ie: $600 in total prizes.) These prizes and sponsors will be provided prime advertising on publications our website and at the event! NOTE: A cash donation can be made for us to purchase these prizes in your name if you prefer.
BIG FISH CONTEST PRIZE - This will be a prize awarded to one contestant. This will also be advertised on our flyer and at sports show events and will be provided prime advertising at the event and on our website.
LIVE and SILENT AUCTION ITEMS - These products, services, trips, etc...will be used at the event and on our website auctions! These really help to raise funds for the MS Research and Support. We would like these products/services/trips, etc...to be of top value in hopes of bringing in top $$$. We will also be advertising online and through media and offering bidding on-line for these products/services.
PRIZE TABLE DONATIONS - These donations are VERY appreciated and can be anything you would be interested in donating at any value. We were able to offer ALL contestants a prize at our first event and hope to do the same this year. Although these donations are not the top prizes, we will offer advertising on our website and exposure at the event!
DREAM FISH CONTEST - This contest will be for the person who catches the Dream Fish. This will be to see if someone breaks the Ontario Yellow Perch Provincial Record of 2.42lbs caught by Dave Leslie in Lake Erie. Our hope is to have a Snowmobile/ATV, Large Cash Prize or vehicle donated for this prize! We currently are working on an insurance policy that will cover a Cash Prize. If you are intetested in being this sponsor, you would be resposible for covering the cost of the policy ie: $500 +/-
CASH DONATIONS - Many people and businesses this year preferred to give cash donations toward the event; and in many cases to purchase a prize in their name. We support this and would gladly work with you to decide on items purchased and prize staging. We would also offer full advertising for these donations and have companies that are willing to work with sponsors to provide discounts on MAJOR prizes ie: sleds, boats, fish finders, etc...
