As many of you know, besides being a fun event, Mazo Wild West Days – a staple event for 57 years – is the community’s annual fundraiser for all of the local non-profits. These organizations are an important part of what makes Mazo a great place to live, work, and play. The efforts of the non-profit organizations have helped make Mazo one of the “Top Ten Coolest Towns” in the nation. This year’s theme is “Keep Mazo Wild!”
Friends of Mazo Beach is a member organization of the Mazomanie Chamber of Commerce (as well as the Sauk Area Chamber of Commerce). As a member of the Mazo Chamber we have an opportunity to fund raise while contributing to an important awesome event that is a strong traditional part of Mazo.
One way of contributing is for us to be a sponsor for the Wild West Days. Some of the sponsorship benefits include having Mazo Beach and logo on the official WWD T-shirts and Mazo Beach being promoted in a News-Sickle-Arrow ad as well as website and sponsor signage.
Since this is an ideal opportunity to get great “exposure” for Mazo Beach we have chosen a sponsorship level of either Gold ($750) or Platinum ($1000) – depending on how much can be raised quickly. THIS CONTRIBUTION NEEDS TO BE DONE RIGHT AWAY TO BE ABLE TO GET MAZO BEACH PROMOTED ON THE T-SHIRTS. With only about a half dozen sponsors on the shirts, we will be prominently displayed. T-shirts are given to all volunteers and will also be sold at the event.
PLEASE! ANY AMOUNT, LARGE OR SMALL WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED…
CONTACT US RIGHT AWAY FOR MORE INFO ON HOW YOU CAN FINANCIALLY CONTRIBUTE TOWARD OUR GOAL.
Another way of contributing is to volunteer your time to help make WWD a successful event. In addition, for every hour you put in, the WWD Association will pay back an hourly wage to our designated organization. VolunteerSpot is being used to organize the event, so with a simple online signup you just choose your spots and will receive an automatic confirmation and reminders. Volunteer spots are still available from Tuesday, Sept 8th thru Wednesday, Sept 16th.
AGAIN, CONTACT US FOR MORE INFO TO VOLUNTEER.
On Saturday (Sept 12th) the Community Corral provides space to help promote local organizations, groups and businesses. We have an opportunity to set up a display table and give out information about Mazo Beach if we so choose. This would require people getting involved in the planning process as well as some people to man the table.
IF INTERESTED IN HELPING PLAN OR MAN THIS PUBLIC RELATIONS TABLE, PLEASE CONTACT US.
On Sunday (Sept 13th) the WWD parade will be showcasing bands and floats, and we have an opportunity to have a Mazo Beach float in the parade if we so choose. We have some absolutely fantastic ideas for a float, but need more people with ideas, skills and time involved in the creation to pull it off as well as people to be in the parade.
IF YOU WANT TO TAKE PART IN THE CREATION OF A MAZO BEACH FLOAT FOR THE PARADE, CONTACT US.
Even if you can’t help make it happen, hopefully you can support the event by coming and having some fun (fireworks, carnival, helicopter rides, karaoke, western costume contest, live music, etc). See their website for more information.
