Dear Business Partner,
It is with great sadness that the Chatham Jaycees have had to cancel our beloved annual Sweet Corn Festival, one of the most popular summer festivals in Central Illinois. We hold this amazing event in order to fund our most important annual project, Clothes for Kids. Clothes for Kids is our holiday program that provides shoes and clothing items to the neediest children in the Ball-Chatham School District. The Jaycees have great hope for the continuation of this important project with the support of our business partners and community members, by asking for help in sponsoring a child, or three! Over the past 40+ years, area businesses have played a major role in the continued success of our festival, and the giving efforts that it supports.
As always, we offer your business promotional opportunities with the following sponsorship levels:
Sponsor one child for a $150 investment
: Your company logo will be included on the back of t-shirts that will be offered to the public for purchase. Funds raised by the sale of these shirts will further fund our programming. Your business will also be included in a display ad, in the Chatham Clarion, thanking our sponsors.
Sponsor TWO children for a $300 investment
: Your company logo will be included on our Tote Board, displayed in a prominent location on Route 4, as well as the benefits listed in the above sponsorship level.
Sponsor THREE children for a $450 investment
: Individualized company shout-out, including company logo, on Facebook, along with all benefits of previous sponsorship levels.
In addition to the Clothes for Kids event, the Chatham Jaycees facilitate a variety of community projects:
We help support individuals and families dealing with severe health issues or losses that make everyday life difficult to manage.
We organize the annual Chatham Community Easter Egg Hunt, a popular event with over 500 participants.
We provide multiple annual scholarships awarded to high school seniors who excel in community service.
The Chatham Jaycees have made recent donations to support local law enforcement, fire protection, Chatham Area Library, Ball-Chatham School District, Fishing Has No Boundaries, scouting projects and local parks.
This list is not all inclusive, but it does represent the tremendous community support provided through funds usually raised at the annual Chatham Sweet Corn Festival.
Thank you for your consideration.
