Become a Tree Sponsor

You may want to consider being a Title Sponsor of this event. With a minimum sponsorship of $6,000 plus, this could be “The your business” TREEs for A Brighter Future Event.

Again this year IA SENB will have a limited number of 7 to 7.5 foot artificial Christmas Trees, sponsored by community businesses, groups and individuals. Some sponsors from last year have already reserved a Tree for this year. Reserve your Tree soon if you are interested in sponsoring the decorating of a Tree for the Live Auction Sponsoring a tree entails, purchasing the decorations (which must include tree lights, a tree skirt and topper), as well as the decorating of the Tree.

Details including date and location will be provided to Live Auction Trees Sponsors. The decorated Trees remain on public display (with the names and logos of the sponsors on them) until the day of the GALA when they are auctioned. (Advance bidding is also provided for those who may not be able to attend the Gala). Some Trees may be raffled at selected businesses. The Trees are delivered in the local area (fully decorated and wrapped), at no charge to the winning bidder, the following week. As you may have seen from previous events, the Trees have been magnificent . . . some valued at $1000. or more.

Again this year IA SENB, in partnership with Canadian Tire (one of Canada’s largest companies), is offering a unique opportunity for businesses in the region to raise their community profile while supporting one of the most vulnerable populations in our community.
As part of our annual Trees for a Brighter Future/ des sapins pour un avenir plus brillant event, we have a limited number of spectacular, fully decorated artificial Christmas trees which will be displayed on site at Canadian Tire on Mountain Road for 4 weeks during November and December, with the sponsors’ name, logo, location and acknowledgement of their sponsorship, prominently displayed on the trees . Canadian Tire Mountain Road receives upwards of 60 thousand customers during this period.
