With winter in the rear view mirror, it’s time to start thinking ahead to the Chamber’s upcoming Golf Outing and Dinner! The annual event attracts more than 150 business and civic leaders who enjoy a terrific day of golf, lunch, a cocktail reception and dinner, and light-hearted competition for enviable prizes. Golf Outing sponsorships offer a great way to give your business visibility at the event, as well as show your support for the Chamber.
While all of the major sponsorships have already been snapped up, there are plenty of hole sponsorships available. The Chamber gratefully acknowledges the following sponsors who are already signed up:
- 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
All sponsors enjoy a number of advanced marketing opportunities, ranging from a listing in full-page ads in the Northbrook Tower to event posters, as well as Chamber collateral materials, including the website, golf program and newsletter. Golf Hole sponsorships offer a very affordable and easy way to be involved in the Outing. While the Chamber takes care of the contest and the prize for all hole sponsors, Hole sponsors can have representatives at their designated hole on the course, where they display marketing materials, offer fun contests or games, and distribute giveaways.
“The Golf Outing offers a fun way to let people know what your business is and we have a blast interacting with the golfers,” says Mark DeBartolo, Len Roofing and Remodeling. “We tease the golfers about their golf game and even have golf trivia questions for them!”
It’s also a way to build awareness and show support for the Chamber. “Our Golf Outing sponsorship shows our support for the community where we serve our customers,” notes Glenview State Bank VP Terry Schneider. “It helps remind everyone that we have a branch in Northbrook; it gives us a chance to interact with people who may not be as familiar with who we are or what we do.”
Sponsors can also use the Outing to show off some of their products. “For a busy store owner like myself who can’t be at the Outing, I really enjoy sending a few of my staff out to the course to meet golfers and share some of our product samples,” notes Mary Bowler, Wags on Willow. “Everyone loves our giveways and this year we are excited to have a drawing for a special prize!”
