Sponsorship is a great way to show client or employee appreciation, celebrate a birthday or anniversary, promote company team-building and support this one-of-a-kind community event. Sponsorships, which range from an $899 family sponsorship to the customizable major sponsorship, are truly the only way to fly during the event. Sponsors who sign up early will receive recognition in the Balloon Race e-newsletter and Balloon Race website as an early sponsor.
Event officials also are excited to announce the addition of a new sponsorship opportunity: the one-day sponsorship at $399, which gives sponsors the opportunity to fly on any one day of the Balloon Race while helping make a difference for the event.
The celebration will take place at its traditional location, Rancho San Rafael Regional Park. The Balloon Race, which began with just 20 balloons in 1982, has grown to showcase more than 100 balloons and pilots from as far away as New Zealand and Switzerland. On average, 150,000 spectators from all over the world come to share in the wonder of this three-day event, which has been a free event thanks to generous sponsor support.
