SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

ZOOMINESCENCE 2022

 

Our team at the Valley Zoo Development Society is proud to present our 10th Anniversary of Zoominescence: A Festival of Light. This December, Zoominescence, hosted by the Edmonton Valley Zoo and the Valley Zoo Development Society, will stage a spectacular exhibition of artistic light installations within the unique setting of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The festival’s vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination, and the essential strong spirit of community in the winter. This year’s theme is “Celebrating 10 Years of Light, Love, and Animal Conservation” to focus on the beauty of light, the power of love, and the importance of animal conservation to support all life on Earth.

The festival begins on December 2 and runs every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evening, plus every evening from December 16 to January 1 (excluding Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). Join us for an evening of light, love, animals, and holiday fun for the whole family!

        COMMUNITY SPONSOR

        We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience this magical event to get them into the festive spirit. Although entrance to the festival is a nominal donation per person, unfortunately, not everyone in our community is able to afford any extras outside of their necessities for their families. With the help of generous sponsors, we can help bring these families to the Edmonton Valley Zoo to experience the wonder of our winter city and enjoy the festivities.

        Our goal is for these tickets to be shared with other non-profit organizations, as well as with schools that are predominantly lower-income families. The following packages are available for sponsorship in multiples of 50 at the Children’s Ticket cost of $9.95 instead of $15.95.

        • 50 tickets for $497.50 ($797.50 Value)
        • 100 tickets for $995 ($1,595 Value)
        • 200 tickets for $1,990 ($3,190 Value)
        • 400 tickets for $3,980 ($6,380 Value)

        Your generosity will provide you with the following:

        • Display your company name and logo in on site banners, on our website, and social media.
        • Your company name on the letter that accompanies the donated tickets to the recipient.
        • If you choose to have the Valley Zoo Development Society distribute your tickets to a charity, we will provide you 10 complimentary tickets to Zoominescence (Value of $160).

        * A limited number of community sponsor tickets are available.
