Home of the Sparrow gratefully welcomes your support in making our 2013 events a success! On June 29th, we will be hosting our Gala Event at the magnificent Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington. Guests at the event can expect a night full of tasteful entertainment, all themed around a late 1800’s French-themed carnival in the carousel building, complete with stilt walkers, fortune tellers and more. We anticipate a sellout of this event, with over 325 guests. Our 8th Annual Charity Golf Outing will be held on August 26th at the Bull Valley Golf Club in Woodstock. A golf scramble, contests, dinner, exciting raffles and auctions will round out the day, and we anticipate over 120 guests at this event. We’re also excited to announce the addition of a third event; our 1st Annual Zombie 5k Run, 1 Mile Walk! This event will be held on October 5th at Three Oaks Recreation Area in Crystal Lake, and will be themed all around the recent zombie craze and will even include a zombie zone!
The success of our events is credited largely to our generous sponsors, who lend their names and financial support to the event. The money we raise at each event directly supports our shelters that provide transitional housing and comprehensive supportive services to 165 homeless women and children each year.
We hope you will support Home of the Sparrow by joining hands with us as a partner and sponsor for these events. By participating as a sponsor, your organization will benefit from extended exposure through media campaigns and promotional efforts directed towards the supporters of Home of the Sparrow and the general community.
We have a variety of sponsorship levels, as detailed in our sponsorship opportunity packet. You have an option to combine sponsorships for all three events, which many companies find appealing for budgetary purposes. We can also mix and match to create a custom fit for your business! You can select the level of participation that best meets your needs, and be secure in the knowledge that your sponsorship will be used to help the homeless women and children at Home of the Sparrow.
Your business will receive optimum exposure to thousands in the community, showing your commitment in making McHenry County and Northern Illinois a better place to live. Please note that we have also increased our media coverage! We now insert our newsletter into the Northwest Herald that gives us about 33,000 contacts, as well as our Eblasts are over 6,500. In addition, we have ads that will be in the Herald and many other Media Outlets like: Barrington Quinssential, McHenry County Living, McHenry County Magazine and all the local Chambers including Palatine!
We are counting on you becoming a partner with us in ending homelessness for women and children. Feel free to contact Alana Subleski at asubleski@HOSparrow.org or at 815.271.5444 X. 40. Sponsorship forms can be mailed to 5342 W. Elm St, McHenry, Il 60050, or faxed to 815.271.5406.
