Iron Chef Goes Coastal November 13, 2012 Sponsorship

United Way of Clatsop County, in addition to its annual fund raising campaign hosts special events each year to increase the funds for local non-profits providing critical services.  As a sponsor of these events, your business not only receives promotional benefits, but also a piece of the goodwill that comes from being associated with an organization recognized for its important work in the community.

Given the current economic climate, it is no surprise that the need in our Community – for food, clothing, shelter and other most basic things – is greater than ever. Budgets are tight and campaign contributions are lagging and our special events are an important component.  We need your support to continue providing much needed help!

Presenting Sponsor: $6,000+  (previous year’s presenting sponsor has first right of refusal)

Partner: $2,500  

Benefactor: $1,500

Supporter: $1,000
