Dear MIAPBC Members,
It’s that time of year again! The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County is pleased to announce that plans are already underway for the 21st Annual Palm Beach Holiday Boat Parade and Toys for Tots Drive being held Saturday, December 5, 2015 starting at 6:00 p.m. in North Palm Beach and heading north up the ICW to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse.
We hope you will consider becoming a new or repeat sponsor of this awesome, one-of-a-kind community event! Your boat entry is FREE, so consider a corporate boat entry and take advantage of even more exposure for your business as you pass the tens of thousands of spectators lining the parade route. Plus you’ll be eligible to win some of the $10,000 in cash and prizes given away at the end of the night! In addition to cash sponsorships, we are also in need of in-kind donations.
This year’s parade will again feature a beautiful traveling fireworks display and the 16th Annual Toys for Tots Drive, which will include dockside donation pickups by designated volunteer toy boats. Last year’s effort generated close to 10,000 toys for needy children in our area making us the top toy collector for Toys for Tots in Palm Beach County.
This event is a free gift to the community produced by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County paid for entirely with MIAPBC funds and sponsorship dollars. This is why we need the support of our local businesses and communities. To that end, we are asking great businesses such as yours for monetary sponsorship, prize donations, and even encourage you to enter a boat in the parade. We also need all the help we can get promoting the event throughout the community. If you have questions or need further information please contact Alyssa Freeman at the Marine Industries office at (561) 863-0012 or firstname.lastname@example.org
. Included for you are the various sponsorship opportunities and benefits of sponsorship.
Thank you for your consideration.
