2022 Diego's "Tail" Gate Sponsorship Form
***Early bird pricing available through July 1, 2022 for the below sponsorship packages***
All dog owners think their pets are special, but we think Diego, a handsome black Labrador, is one of a kind. And in Cumberland County, he is!
Diego is a courthouse facility dog. Extensively trained to work in court-related settings, he provides comfort and a friendly face for abused, neglected, or dependent children during legal proceedings, which can be very stressful for youngsters who already face difficulties daily.
The Cumberland County Bar Foundation (CCBF), which supports Diego and other law-related programs that enrich the quality of life in our county, is holding its fifth external fundraiser in October. In the last four years, we’ve raised nearly $100,000.00 to help support our cause. We are excited about the potential to enhance the foundation’s programming, and hope that you will consider a sponsorship opportunity at this year’s event.
Diego’s “Tail” Gate will be held Saturday, October 8, 2022, on the beautiful grounds of Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast in Carlisle. Attendees can take part in live and silent auctions and games of skill and chance, enjoy delicious food and a variety of entertainment, and—of course—meet the guest of honor, Diego. We also are holding a limited-ticket raffle with a chance to win a grand prize of $10,000.00.
Sponsorship levels are listed on the accompanying form. Your participation in Diego’s “Tail” Gate gives you the chance to receive exposure through our media campaigns and event promotions. You will have the opportunity to network with those in attendance, increase your brand recognition, and promote your business. In addition, you’ll know you helped the hundreds of Cumberland County children and adults who benefit fromCCBF-supported programs each year.
We offer our thanks to Kit and Robin Stauffer for generously opening their historic bed and breakfast for this fun and memorable event. We hope you will join them in sponsoring this year’s Diego’s “Tail” Gate. Thank you for your consideration, and we’ll see you on October 8.
