On March 24 of this year, something truly remarkable happened in Detroit. The corner of Michigan and Trumbull, which has sat vacant and dreary since Tiger Stadium was completely demolished nearly a decade ago, has been invigorated with new life -- with the opening of the Corner Ballpark Presented by Adient! Spearheaded by the Detroit Police Athletic League, which now calls this location home, this stunning new facility has created a hub for this incredible organization that currently provides athletic, academic and motivational programs for over 14,000 Detroit youth.
Additionally, the Corner Ballpark is ideal for bringing new events and subsequently lots of metro Detroiters to the Corktown neighborhood! The venue includes a Banquet Hall overlooking the ballpark with the skyline of Detroit beyond, the PAL offices, grandstands, baseball diamond and spacious concourse. Our company - The Quintessential Event Company - has the honor and privilege of being one of the first event promoters to coordinate and host major festival events at this venue.
This summer and fall of 2018, we are hosting two exciting events at this location:
6th Annual Motor City Pizza Fest
(formerly located in Royal Oak)
Friday, August 10, 2018
6 pm – 10 pm
Saturday, August 11, 2018
Noon – 10 pm
PolkatoberFest at the Corner
A Celebration of Polish Food and Culture
Saturday, October 13, 2018
11 am – 8 pm
We are offering your company a phenomenal opportunity to promote your business as a Sponsor with both of these events at this incredible new venue. We are confident that your involvement will reap considerable benefits for your business! Please read on for the exciting details.
Since 2008, The Quintessential Event Company has been a pioneer in producing innovative event programs in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. Our 2018 event schedule includes 35 incredible events.
Now, we are thrilled to be producing two of our successful events at The Corner Ballpark. We are anticipating thousands to be drawn to the Corner Ballpark to not only attend these events, but they will also be curious to actually see this fabulous new development at the hallowed ground of old Tiger Stadium! We expect both Detroit residents and suburbanites alike to attend these events.
Our food festival attendees historically represent that ideal slice of Middle America that so many businesses are eager to connect with – primarily college educated, professionally employed homeowners. Our strongest age demographic is 25 to 45 years of age, representing over 80% of our overall attendance. One of the most fascinating and enticing features of our demographic makeup is the diversity of the ethnic backgrounds of our attendees. We have had the good fortune of creating events that strip cultural barriers. Food, the cornerstone of most of our events, is a great unifier. The geographic draw of our attendees spans remarkably from Port Huron to Toledo to Lansing.
We would truly value your partnership as a Sponsor to promote your business while assisting us in making these events possible and bringing new vitality to this fledgling venue and the Corktown neighborhood.
Here are the amazing benefits for your business:
•Direct access to the thousands of “top prospect” attendees that participate in these events and the massive number of people who will be reached by our robust paid social media ad campaigns and event website views. •Promotion of your business at a unique venue that serves as a cornerstone for youth empowerment in the city of Detroit. •The chance to have this incredible exposure for two amazing events. Repetition yields results! •The incalculable value of being perceived as supporter of the community through opportunities bringing together southeastern Michigan’s very widespread communities.
Included in this sponsorship proposal you will find this introduction and a description of four sponsorship levels that make this opportunity attainable for any business! Please note that we will be accepting only three businesses per business category (i.e. Insurance companies). If you become a Platinum Sponsor, you will have exclusivity in your business category!
