Hello everyone, I’m a member of a nonprofit making organisation and we are looking for ideas in obtaining sponsorship so thought I'd post here to see if anyone has some ideas that might help? Some details of the event: Each year, we organise a Bite Back at Cancer Black Tie Ball, the first Ball was held in 2007, in recognition of two popular divers, Vickie Herrald and Sally Pearson. This event has now become a regular date in our calendars, as a legacy to their wishes and in memory of their positive and loving outlook on life, despite the harsh cards they had both been dealt. The fund raising success of the event has grown year on year, thanks to the generosity of the attendees and also our sponsors in the form of donated gifts for inclusion in the charity auction and prize draws. To date we have raised: · In 2007 the amount was £1,500.00; · In 2008 the amount was £3,000.00; · In 2009 the amount was £6,000.00; · In 2010 the amount was £11,500.00; and · And in 2011 it was an amazing effort reaching £19,500.00. The funds raised are donated equally between two charities that we believe are close to the heart for many people. Marie Curie is one of our chosen charities, as their support is invaluable during the hard times that cancer can bring. The second charity, Bite-Back, is an organisation dedicated to marine conservation and the protection of sharks and aims to reduce consumer demand upon threatened shark and fish species. We are looking for new and exciting things this year and would love to extend our horizons. We are happy to advise that this year's event is being held at the Underglobe at the Globe on the Southbank.... All generosity is gratefully received and certainly does go a long way in helping us raise money for two very good charities, without the kindness of our sponsors, the event simply would not be the tremendous success it is each year. Our sponsors are who make this night such an amazing night out for everyone. We love to have some unique lots in our Charity Auction this year to help freshen up the Ball and to allow for the non divers amongst us to become more involved. If you do, we'd like to advise that your sponsorship could be used in a number of ways, including the auction, raffle draws, casino, or other game or activity held on the night, so no sponsorship is too small or too big and will be greatly accepted. In return for your sponsorship, your company logo and information will be advertised in our event's booklet. This booklet placed at each seat on the night and we also email this to our guest a couple of weeks before the event. As an incentive to encourage clubs and groups of people to attend we are offering a prize draw specifically for group bookings of ten or more people where you'll have the opportunity to win a one day boat charger with Sussex Ship Wrecks. This year’s venue has a maximum capacity of 250 places, so at the very worst each entry will have a 25 to 1 chance of winning! We refer to the various links, within this email, for further information on; previous events, Bite Back Charity, our past sponsors, Marie Curie Charity. All the best
I used to run a small company which was set up to gain sponsorship for a pro racing team. However this company was Disolved in Feb 2007. The DCA is chasing a LARGE debt in excess of £10k. I remember this particular company as they Sponsored the team. The amount the Sponsored was for not much more than this amount, however the amount sponsored was for Corporate Hospitality, Branding, Motivational Talks by the Team and appearances by the Team etc. Because I knew the person in the Branch that organised the Sponsorship not much paperwork was done, except a brief Sponsorship agreement. However I no longer have this as the company was Disolved.Can the DCA actually chase ME for this alledged debt, although it was a Sponsorship of which was covered by the above, in my view goods were supplied, especially seeing that the company was a Limited by Guarentee of £1. Your thoughts Please.Kind RegardsGlobal_Mongrel
