Dear Potential Sponsor,
On behalf of the organizing committee, thank you for taking time to consider supporting
SilverBack Promotions Association Non-Profit Group. With your support, our events
promise to make an even greater contribution to the Halifax community while offering a
unique experience for all age groups.
SilverBack Promotions Association Non-Profit Group is comprised of dedicated students
working together to give back to the HRM community. All of our proceeds are donated
to the charitable/community groups with whom we partner. SilverBack aims to help
charitable and community groups in HRM through designing, organising, and promoting
unique events to raise awareness and much needed funds. In addition, SilverBack
operates a consulting service for Dalhousie societies, and runs a custom screen printing
business to create capital.
By August 2011, with your help, SilverBack Promotions Assoc. hopes to have raised
$4000 while adding two new events to our current line up. Our established annual
events are: The lingerie fashion show Nuovo Inizio (Italian: New Beginning) , the Winter
Classic road hockey tournament. This year we hope to add two new events to our
annual line up: Lord Dalhousie's Fencing and Feast - a dinner theatre arranged around
live fencing- and a Fall Classic Ball Hockey Tournament.
Last year, the Nuovo Inizio fashion sucessfully generated a $1000 profit which was
donated to Community Action on Homelessness. This event showcases local lingerie
designs in a decidedly chic and sophisticated setting. Professional photographers
capture the event as cameras are otherwise prohibited in order to maintain a
professional level of decorum for the models gracing the runway.
The third annual War Child Winter Classic will be held in the winter semester of 2010.
We look to build on our success from last year by increasing the number of teams and
adopting a pledge format for registration. On site BBQ and DJ services will provide a
backyard league ambience, with a wrap up party and award ceremony to follow.
Lord Dalhousie's Fencing and Feast will take place in the Great Hall of the Dalhousie
University Club on September 30,2010. This family friendly event will invite guests to
the Lord's annual tournament and dinner. Local actors will play the role of the Lord and
his family, as patrons enjoy a period accurate three course meal while watching live
modern fencing in a central piste.
Due to the success of the Winter Classic we will be debuting an identical fall classic,
welcoming students back to Halifax in style.
This year we are looking for sponsors who would like to contribute to the SilverBack
initiative. We invite you to participate in our commitment to raising $4000 for local
charities/community groups by August 2010.
These events provide a unique opportunity for local retail businesses to showcase their
merchandise in an exceptional and appealing setting. Since both the art show and
soccer tournament are still in the planning stages, opportunities exist to help design how
your company will be represented. We offer four sponsorship tiers for your
