Tips for Finding a Sponsor for Entertainment at your Blue and Gold Banquet
As a leader of a Cub Scout pack, you may be responsible for organizing the entertainment for your pack's blue and gold banquet. One way to cover the costs of entertainment is to seek sponsorship from a parent or local business. Here are a few tips for getting a parent or local business to sponsor the entertainment at your Cub Scout blue and gold banquet:
Identify potential sponsors: Start by making a list of potential sponsors who may be interested in supporting your pack's banquet. This could include parents who are active in the pack, local businesses that support scouting or have a connection to your pack, or community organizations that align with your pack's values.
Make a pitch: Once you have identified potential sponsors, reach out to them with a pitch explaining why they should sponsor the entertainment at your blue and gold banquet. Be sure to highlight the benefits of sponsorship, such as exposure to a large audience of scouting families and the opportunity to support a worthwhile cause.
Offer incentives: Consider offering incentives to potential sponsors to encourage them to support your banquet. This could include recognition in event materials, signage at the event, or other promotional opportunities.
Follow up: If you don't hear back from a potential sponsor right away, don't be afraid to follow up. They may just need a little more time to consider your request.
Be gracious: If a potential sponsor declines your request for sponsorship, be gracious and thank them for considering it. You never know when you might have the opportunity to work with them in the future.
By following these tips, you can successfully secure sponsorship for the entertainment at your Cub Scout blue and gold banquet. Not only will this help cover the costs of the event, but it will also help to strengthen the relationships within your pack and the wider community.
