About the event
Help Us Make Pink Lemon-Aid
As the saying goes, “When life gives you lemons,” … Typically our Tea for Mammograms is held each May, but when COVID-19 escalated, we postponed to the Fall in hopes of gathering in-person. Unfortunately, social distancing and safety precautions are still at a level which prevents this from happening.
Breast cancer doesn’t stop for a global pandemic. So, we are asking for your help as we make pink lemon-aid with our first ever virtual event! Our community needs your help now! The Tea for Mammograms fundraiser supports the UPMC Pinnacle Mammogram Voucher Program (MVP), which provides free mammograms and potentially life-saving diagnostic screening.
Our new virtual event will provide you direct engagement opportunities with our loyal attendees.
We would love to partner with you and hear how we can make this new platform more engaging for you. Where does the value lie for you: brand recognition, speaking opportunities, sharing links with attendees? As we work through the next norm, we know everyone’s needs are different. We also acknowledge that the current market has put a squeeze (sorry for the lemon pun) on everyone’s budgets. We have an assortment of opportunities to meet everyone’s needs.
What’s new this year?
- Sponsorship video opportunities
- Links for attendees to contact you directly
- Catered meals for each reservation, delivered to in the greater Harrisburg area
- Silent auction solicitation
We will be using a virtual venue to “house” our event. This online presence allows us to create a unique sponsor area. This can include a link to a webpage of your choosing, coupons, videos, digital files, contact information, etc. If you would like to provide logo items we can include these in our swag bags, distributed before the event. This engagement space will open one week prior to the livestreamed event. This year, we will also have a silent auction and hope you will consider including a gift basket or item. Your sponsorship will include boxed tea brunch meals for each reservation, delivered to one address per sponsorship. Once we receive your attendee names and email addresses they will be provided unique login credentials to attend.
Sponsorship levels are included here for your review. The deadline to receive full benefits is October 9. Please let me know if you have any questions,
Be well, wash your hands, wear your mask, and get your Tea Hats ready!
