CITY OF PHOENIX AND PHOENIX COMMUNITY ALLIANCE TEAM UP FOR “LIGHTS ON CENTRAL AVENUE” SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY
The city of Phoenix and Phoenix Community Alliance have teamed up to encourage community sponsorships to continue “Lights on Central Avenue,” a Phoenix tradition of displaying lighted holiday decorations along Central Avenue, from Camelback Road to Baseline Avenue. During recent years, funding has diminished and community support is vital to continue this tradition.
“One of my favorite memories as a child is when my family would take my mother’s yellow station wagon and drive down Central Avenue to look at the holiday lights. Learning that the holiday lights may not be a possibility due to funding was heartbreaking. I am hopeful others in our community enjoy this tradition as much as I do and together we can keep this tradition alive,” said Councilman Michael Nowakowski, District 7.
Each sponsor will be recognized with a banner(s) featuring the organization/business name and logo to be displayed along Central Avenue, along with recognition in the city’s “At Your Service” newsletter, distributed via the city’s water bill, and on Councilman Nowakowski’s PHXTV show, among other recognition. Sponsorship opportunities cover specific portions of Central Avenue, and start at $1,800.
For more information on this sponsorship opportunity, please visit phoenix.gov/rfp and click on the “Lights on Central RFS” link. Statement of interest forms must be submitted no later than 2 p.m. Arizona time on Friday, Aug. 22, 2014. For specific questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 602-262-7654. Question and answer deadline is 5 p.m. Aug. 8.
