St. Croix Pirate Adventure Seeks Sponsors for Four-Day Extravaganza

The St. Croix Pirate Adventure crew has announced the planning of the St. Croix Pirate Adventure, a four-day extravaganza of pirates, parades and festivities in paradise during the weekend of Memorial Day in 2013. It invites the community to participate in this great adventure. The adventure, designed to showcase St. Croix’s many historic and cultural attractions, plans to capture the mystique and excitement of the glorious days of privateers, wreckers, buccaneers and corsairs. It will feature a host of pirate escapades for both children and adults, including many special events at historic venues throughout the island.
In addition to providing the island with unprecedented tourism at the beginning of the off-season, it will be a family-oriented event that will feature an island-wide pirate invasion, a treasure hunt, costume ball, parades and a pirate trial, unlike anything St. Croix has seen before.
The festival committee plans to expose tourists to the entire island of St. Croix, bringing together local public, private sector and non-profit organizations to host a variety of pirate-style events. The adventure will also bring the commercial enterprise to participate with a “Village Marketplace” of vendors. Restaurants and hotels are invited to participate directly by offering a rotating entertainment schedule throughout the event, scheduled from May 24-27.
Sponsorship: Currently, the St. Croix Pirate Adventure is seeking major corporate, small business and individual sponsors of the event in order to proceed. Non-profit organizations are invited to participate by hosting specialized events such as fundraisers. All sponsors will receive benefits from corporate advertising to festival T-shirts.
Business sponsors will receive extensive benefits that are designed to complement each company’s marketing objectives providing an excellent return on investment. Individuals will get the benefit of being involved in this community event, receive T-shirts, and get his or her name listed in the final “Thank Ye Ad.” To supplement hospitality, marketing and rights benefits, we will work closely with our sponsors to create ideal partnerships.
Sponsorship with the festival will provide:
• Local and global promotional opportunities
• Broaden the market’s awareness of your products and services
• Reinforce loyalty with current consumer relationships
• Targeted market of reach for family focused community
• Gain media exposure
Don’t pass up this opportunity to be part of these successful community programs by supporting the St. Croix Pirate Adventure. In addition to having the positive connection of being aligned with important community programs, a significant portion of your sponsorship dollars are tax-deductible.
