I am interested in forming a new group that would be a sponsor or contributor to the St. Ignace Events - which include weekly fireworks, outdoor music, movies by the bay, history tours, as well as our major events such as Adult Pond Hockey, Fish Feast, Straits Brews Festival, Ice Golf and our many crossing events.
Currently these are all funded by the Visitors Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and Kewadin Casino.
Income received by these events is used to keep events going as well as add new ones. For instance, when we have a good year for Pond Hockey we bring in a profit of over $20,000. That gives us money to put towards events. Annually we pay about $53,000 for fireworks. We have been fortunate enough to always have pond hockey but if we ever have a year we can’t, we would have to possibly cut an event (s).
We all enjoy having these events which are good for our local economy but also provide entertainment for our community members. We are excited to form a new group called Friends of the St. Ignace Events that would help contribute to the success of these events.
There is a 4-tiered level of Sponsorship: Champion, Partner, Advocate, Friend
