Check out some of the fun from past sponsors:
Smile Doctors by Hurley & Volk Ortho – We’ve had such joy this past year working with the St. Charles park district. They’ve done a great job with each event from a sponsorship standpoint and from a standpoint as someone who has attended these events. This has been a challenging year and through it all every event has been successful, planned out thoroughly, well thought out, and with a purpose. We’ve enjoyed getting to know people in the community and it truly has helped our practice grow. We’ve had a ton of new leads since sponsoring and have loved getting to spread our name out. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
Activity Guide Ads – Each season, the Park District produces activity guides that are circulated to 26,500 households with the Park District’s boundaries. Additional guides available at all Park District facilities as well as the library, chamber and city offices. The shelf life of the brochure is approximately 2-3 months because the information within the brochure includes several months’ worth of information. So residents hold it for future reference. This increases the advertising exposure for your business without additional cost. To get your ad in the activity guide, you must commit to a sponsorship package of at least $3,500.
BuzzTV Ads – Advertise your business on the District’s BuzzTV network that is viewed by thousands of visitors each month at these facilities:
• Pottawatomie Community Center (2 screens)
• Hickory Knolls Discovery Center (2 screens)
• Norris Recreation Center (1 screen)
• Sportsplex (1 screen)
• Online on the SCPD Buzz page (1 screen)
