SPONSORSHIP MEANS GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY!
If you are looking to promote your brand and are also seeking that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you contribute to an organization that is a vital party of the community look no further than Evergreen Park.
With over half a million visitors annually, there will be plenty of eyes checking out your logo whether you are sponsoring a fence sign or a naming right at the Park.
“There is a bit of a double-whammy when you sponsor at Evergreen Park,” said Park Marketing & Sponsorship Manager Don Moon. “There is great value in the exposure for your company and at the same time your dollars are going towards a charitable non-profit that is very important to the area.”
The Park is one of the few non-profits in the area that opens its doors, at a very reasonable rate, so other non-profits can profit. Last year events at the Park held by non-profit groups raised over $1.5 million for the Grande Prairie area.
On top of that, there are several non-profits who make Evergreen Park home at no rental fee.
With almost 30 buildings and 1,200 acres to maintain it takes more than just rental fees to ensure the community has access to a variety of facilities and events big and small.
“We count on local companies, through sponsorships, to help us keep those doors open,” said Moon. “There are companies who have been involved with Evergreen Park since the doors opened in 1982 and others coming on annually. Many of them realize it is more than just about getting their logo seen . . . they know they are also giving to the better good of the community when they sign that sponsorship cheque.”
Each year the Park tries to add to its sponsorship package which now includes things like fence signs; naming rights for halls and rooms in the ENTREC Centre and the race track and parking lots; promotional screens; recycle containers; street signs and more.
Evergreen Park, under the umbrella of the Grande Prairie Regional Agricultural & Exhibition Society, is one of the longest serving, if not longest, non-profits in the area.
Evergreen Park was opened in 1982, but the Ag Society has been a continuous part of the community for over 100 years.
“Things have changed a little since that first ‘fair’ back in 1910 in what is now downtown Grande Prairie, but the idea of providing to the community is still as important now as it was when the Ag Society launched that initial event. Evergreen Park is a very important part of the region.”
