Hand Up Gala: Organizational Sponsors

NEOCH is looking for donations of goods, including food, table cloths, napkins, plates, and flowers, as well as financial support to benefit NEOCH and assist in the production of the Hand Up Gala.  The Gala will take place October 18, 2013 at the Cosgrove Center.   By donating, your organization has the opportunity to obtain the benefits of one of four degrees of sponsorship:

 1.  Lead Sponsor-Name the Event:

 This is the fourth year for this event that could be a signature event for your organization. For $3,000, your organization would be named on invitations, tickets, press releases, luncheon menus, a banner at the event, and advertising on our flyer and the website (including a link to your organization's website). Everywhere that this event is mentioned would also mention the name of your organization. 

2.  Major Sponsor: 

For a $1,500 donation or the equivalent in goods or advertising by your radio station, television station or newspaper, your organization would be listed on the press materials, the menu at every table, the flyers and our website (with a link to your website).  Also, you would be entitled to display a banner or display at the event.

3.  Partner Sponsor:

For a donation of $750 or the equivalent in goods or advertising by your radio station, television station or newspaper, your organization would be listed on our website (with a link to your website). Also, you would be entitled to display a banner at the event.

4.   Supporting Sponsor:

For a donation of a gift certificate to be included among our auction items, or if you preferred to donate food or other goods for the luncheon, your organization’s name would be listed on our website.   All supporting sponsors will also be acknowledged at the event.

There are two levels of Supporting Sponsorship:

 a. Grand Auction: Items valued at $100 or more will be selected for the Grand Auction. Interested donors can be entered into the Grand Auction with a donation of $100 per ticket.  Those donating to the Grand Auction will also be entered in the traditional auction.
