The Mayor has agreed to make the proclamation for Autism Month at our club on 7th April. We are in process of securing our major sponsor agreements, and the work around collateral/cards will be started so we can have them ready for distribution. Reaching out to booth sponsors has also begun. We are now focused on getting started with race logistics, while pushing aggressively on registrations as we are lagging here.
We have achieved our first objective and hit our sponsorship target for the event – we now have $71,000 committed from external businesses. This achievement allows us to now focus on driving up registrations for the race and we are embarking on a number of promotional efforts to make this happen. We are making good progress on our volunteer goals and this is the most Rotarian’s we have seen sign up this early, which is marvelous.
A big shout-out goes to QFC and David Bradbury and Steve Koeplin for their continued support over the past several years. David has been generous with supplying mini pumpkins for the Adoption Party, while Steve has supplied frozen turkeys for […]
Our event has been approved by the City, so we are all systems go! We have moved much closer to our goal of $70,000 in sponsorships with our total coming in at $65,000. We have launched our promotions with the monthly discounts and the raffle prize from SHOES-N-FEET. Our registrations have seen some slight increase and this will be the primary area of focus now.
The big accomplishment is that we have locked down on the course with the City and secured their approval. We have also been able to secure our Race Village, which allows us to overcome the challenge of the construction work underway in the park. We continue to make good strides with our PR, outreach to the Autism organizations and volunteers.
