2008 Sponsorship Levels
The River Forest Service Club and The River Forest Park District are again partnering to present the annual River Forest Memorial Day Parade.
It is the generosity of many contributors that make this event possible for our community. Contributions are being sought to offset the many expenses that include marching bands, entertainment, staging, public address system, food & beverage, washroom facilities, printing & advertising, etc.
It is worth noting here that the 2007 parade cost more than $17,000 to present.
Most expenses are incurred even if the parade is cancelled or scaled back due to inclement weather.
Contributions can be made by check, or in the form of significant product or service donations. In return for your organizationís support, we offer a variety of publicity opportunities. The level of your contribution, and its timeliness, directly affect the visibility of your business in our pre-parade advertising, the official Parade Program and parade follow-up materials and press releases.
Contributions Levels are:
$2,500 & above
$1,000 to $2,499
$500 to $999
Friend of the Parade
$100 to $499
Contributors at the Friend of the Parade level or above may reserve a table at the post-parade Keystone Park celebration to present information about their business or organization.
While contributions of less than $100 are welcome, they will not be published.
In addition to utilizing local media, we will distribute the 2008 Parade Program throughout the village, and will circulate over 2,000 flyers via local schools. Your name will be seen in these materials if you so choose.
