Lewiston Christmas Walk Sponsorship Opportunities and Participationby jpauly
December 6 & 7
Dear Business Owner:
The Niagara River Region Chamber of Commerce's annual Christmas Walk has become one of the most anticipated weekends of the Holiday season throughout the region on December 6 & 7. We hope to encourage people to shop local and enjoy the festive spirit of the Village throughout December. Now you have the opportunity to be a part of it either as a sponsor and/or by promoting your special event. The success of this event has been largely due to the participation of our many sponsors and advertisers and we invite you to join us this year to ensure a fabulous weekend.
Thousands of people come to Lewiston each year to welcome Santa by helicopter, observe the lighting of the Christmas tree, visit with Santa in the Peace Garden, ride the carriage, petting zoo, visit the beautifully decorated storefronts on Center Street and enjoy the charm and unique character of the Village of Lewiston. All of this, and more, is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors. Main Sponsorship opportunities are available. Our presenting sponsor is Mount St. Mary's Hospital and Health Center, SuperMarket Liquors & Wines, and Sevenson Environmental Services, Inc., The Santa Sponsor is the Lewiston Kiwanis Club, and the Petting Zoo Sponsor is Tedesco Construction Services, Inc.
The Christmas Walk Schedule of Events and activities are featured in several prominent news publications and among your benefits as a member of the Chamber is the inclusion of your event in this regionally distributed schedule printed in both the Niagara Gazette and Niagara Frontier Publications. If your business or organization is planning something special in terms of entertainment or activities please complete the enclosed form and return it no later than November14th. Santa will come by helicopter on Saturday and will be around all weekend, so please refrain from having a Santa at your establishment! It confuses the kids! Mistletoe and Silver Bell Sponsorship information is also included, with the same return date.
**Activities include a Christmas Tree Decorating Competition and also Window / Entrance way Decorating Competition. Here is the Link to the forms to participate in those. We also have a new costume: OLAF from the Disney Movie FROZEN! Look for more information on our special FROZEN tent with Hot Chocolate!
Thank you for considering becoming a sponsor of one of Lewiston's favorite winter events. The Chamber will be in contact with you over the next few weeks to discuss your participation and to review your activity form.
