To All Area Businesses:
The Chatham Friends of the Parks’ “Light Up the Park” drive through holiday light display continues to be an enormous success, raising the spirits of more than 15,000 people. In an effort to meet our guest’s demands, we will now open Thursday and Sunday nights in addition to the traditional Friday and Saturday nights. Area businesses continue to play a pivotal role in this annual Chatham holiday tradition. Each year, we meet more and more out of town and out of state visitors who make the trip to Chatham to include Light Up the Park in their holiday season. With your help, we aim to continue that success and build upon it even more. We are well underway with building new and larger displays for this year’s edition. The Friends are requesting help from your business to continue to expand this holiday tradition and to reach people from Chatham, Springfield, and the surrounding area.
Here is an outline of our Light Up the Park Sponsorship: (All sponsor names appear on a lighted 12’ sign at the event entrance).
$500: A sign will be placed alongside one of the displays, indicating its sponsorship by your business. Your business name and logo will be included in the program, and your business name will be included on the park map designating your display. This level gives you “first right of refusal” for next year’s event. (Your roadside sponsorship sign is visible to all who drive through the park for 30 days minimum)
$250: Your business name and logo will be included in the program.
$100: Your business name will appear in the program distinguishing you as a white level sponsor.
The Chatham Friends of the Parks was created in 2013 with the purpose of raising funds and awareness of our wonderful parks and green spaces in Chatham. We are an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Thank you for your consideration,
Chairman, Chatham Friends of the Parks
