Class Sponsorship for the IDCTA Banquet | January 29, 2022

Every year, IDCTA recognizes our equestrian community’s hard work and participation by holding a year-end awards banquet. This is a chance for our members to celebrate their accomplishments, as well as inspire others to strive for stewardship and sportsmanship in a sport we all love.

Sponsorship will help defray the cost of the ribbons and prizes and provide an opportunity to support the IDCTA, our equestrian community, and advertise your business or your barn.

Sponsorship is $50 per class. There are three levels of sponsorship:

· Gold ($300+)
· Silver ($150 – $299)
· Bronze ($50 – $149)

You can specify the class and/or level you would like to sponsor and we will do our best to honor your request.

As a thank you for your sponsorship, you will receive the following:

· Your name will be listed in the banquet program and listed with the class that you are sponsoring (if you choose one).
· IDCTA will create a small poster acknowledging your sponsorship, to be hung at the banquet (which you can take home and display in your place of business or barn).
· Your name and logo will be included in the slide show that runs during the banquet (2020 attendance was 275).
· Your banner, if you have one and it is not too large, can be displayed in the raffle area.
· Your sponsorship will be featured on the IDCTA website with a link to your website.
· You will be given ad space in the IDCTA Scribe monthly newsletter:
· Gold – 1/2 page ad for six months, plus an IDCTA business membership
· Silver – 1/4 page for six months
· Bronze – Business Card ad for six months

Thank you in advance for your sponsorship.
