Event Sponsorship Opportunities

The Rotary Club of FishHawk-Riverview, FL is pleased to announce corporate sponsorship opportunities for the 37th Annual Alafia Lighted Boat Parade and Chili To Go Event to be held on Saturday December 5, 2020. The celebration will take place at the Riverview Civic Center and in conjunction with other sites located along the Alafia River. First United Methodist Church of Riverview has agreed to be a viewing site this year thus far, and with announcements of the boat parade winners at River’s Edge.
 

Last year our event featured many decorated boats, chili cook-off contestants, and
refreshments. Children received the opportunity to have their picture taken with Santa Claus, heard Christmas music and saw the bright holiday lights of the boats in the parade. Last year over 30 boats participated.

 

This year promises to be just as fun with the added precautions that we need to take in our county due to the COVID Pandemic. For instance, we will have Santa on a Boat greeting everyone as we go down the river, we are having Chili to Go sponsored by the Flying Locksmiths available at all of the viewing sites for a donation of $5.00 and entertainment outside at the Riverview Civic Center. We hope to attract over 1,500 people to this annual Riverview tradition. All proceeds will fund charitable activities of the Rotary Club of FishHawk-Riverview and Friends of the County Parks.
 

The attached outlines multiple levels of sponsorship opportunities available for your company. We will work with your business to ensure you get maximum recognition and exposure for your promotional dollars. Upon request, we will gladly arrange for 2020 (1st quarter) billing to accommodate budgeting for any of our major sponsors.
 

Since its inception, the Rotary Club of FishHawk-Riverview has been involved in numerous service projects including College Scholarship Program ($58,000+) awarded to date to financially needy students at Riverview, Spoto and Newsome High Schools. The Alafia Lighted Boat Parade is instrumental in supporting  High School Interact Clubs, Student Dictionary Distribution (over 9000 dictionaries to elementary school children since program began), Rotary’s Camp Florida (camp for special needs children in Brandon), Group Study Exchange,
Reading Is Fundamental (more than 900 free books to Head Start students), S4TL (Seminar For Tomorrow’s Leaders), Sylvia Thomas Center, Brandon Outreach (over $10,000 given), ECHO and our local YMCAs (over $10,000 given). Club members have separately given through dues and donations over $100,000.00 in the past 15 years to Polio Plus and The Rotary Foundation.  Our club has also twice participated with money and people power in global projects in Honduras providing water filtration and latrine systems for local communities in that country.
