With the mild winter whetting our appetites for spring it’s time to start planning the annual Golf Outing and Dinner! The popular daylong event attracts more than 175 business and civic leaders who enjoy 18-holes of golf, skills contests for prizes, lunch, cocktail reception, and dinner. A Golf Outing sponsorship is a great way for members to gain visibility while supporting this important Chamber fundraiser.
The Chamber gratefully acknowledges the following major sponsors who have already committed to the event:
Phil Kuhn, Executive Risk Management – Presenting Sponsor
UL – Lunch Sponsor
Align Wellness – Raffle Sponsor
Lewis Floor and Home – Cocktail Hour Sponsor
First Bank of Highland Park – Hospitality Bag Sponsor
Beverage and Snack Station Sponsors – Whitehall of Deerfield, Des Plaines Office Equipment, Hilton Chicago Northbrook and Wags on Willow
Golf Cart Sponsors – Advanced Disposal Services, Albert and Goodman CPAs, M.G. Welbel and Associates and Whitehall of Deerfield
While these members have gotten the ball rolling, there are still golf hole sponsorships available. Sponsorships offer many marketing opportunities including inclusion in full-page Northbrook Tower ads, listing on event posters, in the event program, on the Chamber website and in the newsletter. Hole sponsors can take advantage of the opportunity to mix and mingle with the golfers at their hole and distribute marketing materials. Additionally, each golf hole sponsorship includes a Skills Contest on their hole and a $50 gift certificate awarded to the winner at the post-golf Awards Dinner.
The ability to greet golfers is one of the benefits that makes John Cavanaugh, Alliance Roofing & Exterior a repeat sponsor every year. “This will be my fourth year as a golf hole sponsor and it just keeps getting more fun. The chance to meet the golfers and even many sponsors in a relaxed environment makes it a pleasure to be a part of the Outing.”
Golf Outing sponsors can also help members build on their networking successes. “We have been consistently sponsoring the Outing for years. Our participation in the event coupled with our consistent networking, pays off with business and referrals,” comments Sal Manso, Reebie Storage and Moving.
Broadening their customer base and (along with the chance to have some fun!) is the reason Mary Bowler, Wags on Willow, sponsors a Beverage and Snack Station every year. “The Outing gives us a great reason to get out of the office, enjoy the sun, serve up fun to the golfers and meet new, local pet owners.”
To take advantage of all that the Golf Hole Sponsorships have to offer, sign up early using this insert or call Tami at (847) 498-5555. Because hole sponsorships sell out every year, Tami encourages members to sign up quickly to secure their spot and take full advantage of all of the marketing benefits.
