Why Sponsor the Gala?
Our Annual Gala is the primary fundraising arm of the Harrisonburg Education Foundation that invites hundreds of community members to partake in a night of fun for a good cause. This year, "A Night of Enchantment: A Masquerade Ball" will be held on Valentine's weekend (February 16, 2019) and what better way to celebrate the occasion?! We want you to be a part of it and here's why:
We Can't Do It Without You
The funds raised during our annual gala event directly impact the educational opportunities of students right here in Harrisonburg. Thanks to our sponsors, we are better able to fund opportunities like our Innovative Educator Grants, fulfill student dreams through our college scholarships, and celebrate the excellence of our teachers in Harrisonburg City Public Schools. None of this would be possible without the companies and individuals who have taken a personal interest in our mission.
A Great Marketing Opportunity
We are fortunate to have amassed a generous following of supporters who believe in our mission and love to have a good time. Every year hundreds of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County citizens attend our annual gala and as a sponsor your brand can be front and center on marketing materials, pre-event promotions, social media announcements and event signage, reaching our vast organizational audience and upwards of 400 gala attendees.
Every year couples and singles alike are looking for something fun to do on Valentine's Day weekend and this year, this is it! We anticipate the community coming out in rare form for the chance to put on a mask and enjoy a night of food, music and fun at the beautiful Hotel Madison.
