MiP Sponsors 2019

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 took over the program to keep the tradition alive. With the help of our many volunteers and sponsors, we now host Movies in the Park at no cost to the City, or to attendees. 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 2019 promises to be the best year yet with a collection of hard to get blockbuster movies. The event has grown in popularity over the past several years, attracting over 1,500 people throughout the season. We have also significantly improved the movie picture and sound quality with the addition of a state of the art LCD projector, a QSC sound system, and a new 30 foot Airscreen projection screen.

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 24th – How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
Sept 7th – Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
Sept 14th – Incredibles 2
Sept 21st – Mary Poppins Returns

We currently offer three sponsorship levels: Platinum, Gold, and Silver. Depending on your sponsorship level, your business will enjoy promotional benefits such as: Screening of sponsor provided videos prior to the movie, your business name on our website and our Movies in the Park banner, and 5,000 promotional fliers that will be distributed at the Davis Farmers Market from August through the end of the series.

FAQs

How do I secure a spot for sponsorship?
You will need to pay for your sponsorship commitment by July 1st. Checks should be made out to Davis Sunset Rotary. Platinum and Gold Sponsors will also need to provide a PowerPoint slide and have their logo submitted to us by July 1st so that we can make sure we have time to add your logo to the flyers before we send them out for printing and subsequent distribution at the Davis Farmers Market. Artwork can be mailed to mailto:mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org.

What is the mailing address?
Davis Sunset Rotary
P.O. Box 2112
Davis, CA 95617

Must sponsors design their own advertisement slide for the screen?
Yes. The best way is to create a slide in PowerPoint (Widescreen format, 16:9) and submit it to us, since that’s what we’ll be using to show it. If PowerPoint is not an option, we can work with other artwork that is 11″ x 8.5″ landscape format as long as the quality is high enough. If you are 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 info does a Silver Sponsor need to provide?
Silver sponsor’s names will just be writing in text on the sign by the snack bar as well as our Website. They just need to confirm how they would like it written out.

What if I have more questions?
Any additional questions may be submitted to mip@sunsetrotarydavis.org, erobertsmusser@gmail.com, or your contact in Davis Sunset Rotary.

Thank you!
