Fire­works dis­play needs spon­sors

The Free Press (Corowa) - - FRONT PAGE -

New Year’s Eve may seem a long way away, but ma­jor spon­sors and spon­sors in gen­eral are needed to en­sure we can again put on a good show.

The Ro­tary Club of Corowa is again co­or­di­nat­ing the fund­ing of this event and col­lec­tion tins are al­ready out at lo­cal busi­nesses as well as at its monthly mar­ket in Bangerang Park.

The New Year’s Eve fire­works dis­play, costs around $20,000 to put on and we need ma­jor spon­sors to come on board to help en­sure it goes ahead on a scale we want.

Over the last three years Ricky D’s Pizza, Corowa RSL Club and Ri­valea have been the ma­jor spon­sors, con­tribut­ing a very large pro­por­tion of the funds needed to put on the dis­plays. Ricky D’s spon­sor­ship com­mit­ment, of three years has fin­ished and we have yet to have firm com­mit­ments from the RSL Club and Ri­valea.

The last three years have seen great fire­works dis­plays on John Fo­ord Oval with the chil­dren’s fire­works dis­play at 9:30pm and the main event at mid­night.

Feed­back of the last three shows has been very pos­i­tive, with many vis­i­tors, say­ing they’ll be back next year and this can only be good for tourism and the lo­cal econ­omy.

There is also the op­tion for a nam­ing rights spon­sor should a busi­ness, or in­di­vid­ual wish to con­trib­ute a sig­nif­i­cant enough amount.

If you dis­cuss spon­sor­ship please call John Law 0412 803 920.

Also, do­na­tions can be made di­rectly into the Ro­tary Club’s Fire­works Ac­count, BSB: 082-559 Ac­count No: 246378185, or by cheque made payable to Ro­tary Club of Corowa Fire­works and mailed to PO Box 153 Corowa.

Busi­nesses mak­ing do­na­tions of $500, or more will be listed on the do­na­tions me­ter at the bot­tom of Sanger St and thanked in the Free Press and in­di­vid­u­als do­nat­ing $100 or more will also re­ceive the same recog­ni­tion.
