MIP Sponsors 2017

Dear Members of the Local Business Community:

 Movies in the Park has been a free Davis family fun event since 2006. In 2011, when the City no longer had the budget to present the event, the Davis Sunset Rotary Club stepped up to the plate to continue the tradition. With the help of our many volunteers and sponsors, we now host Movies in the Park at no cost to the City, or to the audience. However, there are many costs associated with organizing and hosting this event, so your sponsorship is essential to continue this community tradition.

 Movies in the Park is free to all, and 2016 promises to be the best yet with a collection of hard to get blockbuster movies.  The event has grown in popularity over the past several years, attracting over 1,000 people on some nights.  We have also significantly improved the movie picture and sound quality with the addition of a state of the art LCD projector and a QSC sound system.  We expect to add a new, larger and brighter screen for 2017.

The four movies that we are screening this year were carefully chosen to be family friendly, exciting and FUN. This year’s movies are:

Aug 26th        Finding Dory
Sept 9th          Moana
Sept 16th        Beauty and the Beast (2017)
Sept 23rd       Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

As a Movies in the Park sponsor, your business can be included in our Davis Enterprise ads, and on banners and 5,000 promotional fliers that will be distributed at the Davis Farmers Market from August through the end of the series.

We have simplified our sponsorships this year, lowering the price and giving two options: “Gold” and “Digital” Sponsorship.

Gold: $600 cash or $1000 in trade out donation

  • Two (2) Movies in the Park 2017 T-Shirts

  • Logo Displayed on our website on the Movies in the Park page
  • Logo on over 5,000 promotional materials for the season
  • Logo printing on 4′ x 4′ banner along with other Gold Sponsors

  • Community appreciation for continuing this Davis tradition

Digital: $300 cash

  • Community appreciation for continuing this Davis tradition

By supporting the Davis Sunset Rotary Club’s Movies in the Park program, each sponsor will not only contribute to a fun family night in Central Park, but will also help to support future Davis Sunset Rotary Club projects.

Thank you! For more information, please contact mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org.


How do I secure a spot for sponsorship?

Gold Sponsors: You will just need to make sure we have a check from you made out to Sunset Rotary Club of Davis, a PowerPoint slide, and your logo submitted to us by the deadline of July 15th. The PowerPoint slide can be submitted up until the first movie, yet the logo is needed earlier. This is so that we can make sure we have time to add you to the flyers before we send them out to print for distribution at the Davis Farmers Market.

Do the sponsors have to design their own advertisement slide for the screen?

Yes. The best way is to create a slide in PowerPoint and submit it to us since that’s what we’ll be using to show it. Otherwise, we should also be able to work with other artwork that is 11″x8.5″ landscape format as long as the quality is high enough. If your not sure if something will work, feel free to contact us at mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org.

What format should my logo be when I submit it?

The preferred format, for best quality prints, is Vector. That includes extension such as .ai (Adobe Illustrator), .eps, .pdf, .svg, .pdf.

What if I have more questions?

Any additional questions may be submitted to mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org or your contact in Sunset Rotary Davis. Thank you!
