Thank you for taking the time to consider sponsoring the Cruisers Aquatics, which has provided fitness, friendships and family fun for 150-200 North Shore athletes ages 4-18 for over 30 years.
We are facing the potential loss of our BC Gaming Grant, which represents 18% of our incoming funds. We are trying to replace that funding with sponsorship and fundraising so that our members are not faced with steep fee increases.
Your sponsorship will expose and ingratiate you to hundreds of North Shore families, and potentially thousands of participants from all over BC.
We are looking for sponsorship in 3 areas:
- Monetary Donation. We’re offering as much promotional exposure as we can to thank sponsors for monetary donations to the Club and the Hootenanny, a Cruisers-hosted host aquatics event July each year where over 800 speed swimming, water polo, diving and synchronized swimming athletes and their families from all over BC will converge at UBC for the largest aquatics event in the province.
- Silent Auction and Athlete Prizes. We host a silent auction fundraiser at the Hootenanny. We also like to incent and reward our athletes for performance and fundraising achievements throughout the season. The success of both relies on the generous donation of prizes.
- Products & Services Sponsorship. We’re looking for suppliers to donate, sell at cost or discount in exchange for promotional opportunities. Examples of the products & services our club makes use of include: printing (programs, flyers, signage), food & beverages, awards & trophies, swim and sports wear, office supplies and storage space.
Please see also the ” Cruisers Sponsorship Program” flyer that outlines the exposure your company can receive in terms of advertising, website links, signage space, distribution of coupons, etc. Please feel free to suggest other arrangements that will benefit you more.
Thank you again for your sponsorship consideration. We look forward to discussing details with you further.
