BECOME A SPONSOR

This isn’t your usual sponsorship pitch. We’re putting you in the driver’s seat of your participation. Be inspired! Be creative! Be seen! The North Van Cares Foundation is dedicated to helping your business shine at this gala!

Here's the Visions

We are going to have 4 “tableaus” throughout the Pipeshop. Each one will be a “room" and be designed by an Interior Designer. Each tableau will feature furniture, accessories, a bar with a bar host, a signature canape from a catering host and a desert from the desert host. We also want each room to have an assigned photographer that can take super cool photos of guests lounging in the tableau. (Think Vanity Fair cover shots of Hollywood casts) But we’re not limiting what can be in the “room”. If you have a spectacularly creative idea that incorporates your product, we want to hear it!

The Interior Designer/Stager will be given other companies to work with. The room would have a signature cocktail that is only served in that room. The same for the canapé and desert. The ID/Stager would be in charge of finding tableau furniture and accessories and making it their own. 

Get Involved

Why are we doing this? Normally a sponsor gets their name in a program and maybe a shout-out from the MC. They don’t interact with gala guests, they don’t get to show off. We want you to show off! We want you to talk to the folks that may hire you. You are a creative force and you’ll get to show that here! 

Each room will be a space of 12’ x 12’ to create the vision. Will one room be mid-century modern? Will one be an timey smoking lounge (without the smoking)? Who knows!? The creative ideas are endless!! Each designer will have to find the furniture and accessories but we’ll connect them with the rest of the tableau sponsors. Each room will have a “room card” that outlines who and what with contact info to make sure guests are fully immersed in your story.

First of all, we are committed to helping North Vancouver based businesses succeed in the community. Many of you have been right by our side through this pandemic and we want to give you a chance to showcase just how awesome your business is and what a great asset to North Van you are.

 

To that end our “customized sponsorship” plan will give you a lot of autonomy over how you are presented at the gala. 

Different and Amazing

Rather than asking for sponsorship for The North Van Cares Foundation Gala we are going to customize each company's involvement so that you will get the absolute best bang for your buck. 

 

How does it work? Tiered sponsorship opportunities don’t work. They’re boring, they don’t give you, the sponsor, anything of value and its just a waste of your money and time. As a former small business owner (photographer and graphic designer) I gave away tons of stuff for silent auctions and sponsorships and didn’t find that the return was worth it. What we’re doing here is different and amazing.
