On Saturday, December 4th, the Longboat Key Kiwanis will host the Longboat Key Lawn Party. This is always the biggest fundraiser of the season for Longboat Key and this year will benefit the Children’s Guardian Fund (CGF), a wonderful local organization that provides funding for the immediate and ongoing needs of children removed from abusive and neglectful homes in Manatee, Sarasota, and DeSoto Counties.
About The Children’s Guardian Fund
CGF is able to provide emergency essentials and on-going support for the needs of children in our community that otherwise would be unavailable. Whether it be a crib, clothes, tutoring, summer camp, or driving lessons in order to enable obtaining employment, CGF provides well over 1000 children annually with the support and means in instances where state and local agencies are unable. The tutoring Children’s Guardian Fund helps these children meet admission requirements so they can get free tuition for training, trade school or public education to become self supporting adults.
Event Sponsorship Needed!
We are constantly presented with many advertising and marketing decisions. Full and half page ads can run between $500-$1500 per single insert. We believe that the goodwill generated from sponsoring Longboat Key’s biggest fundraiser is worth a few of those ads. We would like to offer your company the opportunity to become an event sponsor, while showcasing your business to an audience of up to 700 affluent, educated adults who have a keen interest in food, wine, transportation, travel and healthy living.
Limited# of Patron Sponsor Tables Available
Looking for the perfect holiday party for your top employees or best customers, while contributing to a great cause? Sample specialty dishes from many local restaurants, enjoy wine, beer, and soft drinks and live entertainment – all included with the $75 admission ticket! This year we have tables-for-ten available at the patron level of $1000 with your company’s name and logo and also prominently displayed in the event program as a patron sponsor. A limited number of higher sponsorship levels are available with increasingly higher perks, please see opportunities below.
Through your generosity and the generosity of others, the funds raised at this event will benefit many local Sarasota, Manatee and DeSoto County foster care children and families.
Our Kiwanis chapter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so your donation would be tax-deductible. It is our goal that all donors, no matter the level, would agree this event was their best choice from all the other opportunities available!
I hope you’ll feel that this is something that your business would like to be a part of. Please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at 941.400.1203. We truly look forward to hearing from you. Thank you so much for your consideration!
