First, with the support of our Sponsors and Supporters, we began the process of establishing the RLS Productions’ Concerts in the Gardens™ into a Washington State Regional Brand increasing mid-week tourism outside a 50-mile radius of our Wenatchee Valley and its bedroom communities.
Second, we continue laying the foundation for the ability to produce and build a World Class Intimate Concert Series held at Ohme Gardens with Top Notch Artists resulting in increased tourism. With the help of our community sponsors and leaders, we continue to increase our budget in marketing the series increasing local tourism and promotion of our community’s jewel – ‘Ohme Gardens’.
With help from you, we can increase the strength of our talent booking by bringing in a more diverse group of National and Regional artists.
Lastly, we will continue toward building the savings for the $35,000 needed to endow a scholarship for the Wenatchee Valley College Foundation with 25% of the net ticket sales. After the 2018 series, our contributions for the year totaled $11,500. Over the past five years, with the help of Sponsors, Supporters and out of town guests who are visiting our Wenatchee Valley and Ohme Gardens, we have been able to donate a total of $41,000 to the Wenatchee Valley College Foundation.
From this amount, $14,000 has already been awarded to students in individual $1,000 scholarships.
To continue with these objectives we are asking for help from civic leaders and forward-thinking businesses, corporations and organizations in our community to help us produce this annual concert series and realize the overall Vision.
Enclosed you will find our 2019 sponsorship and supporter proposal, that is a truly outstanding marketing sponsorship opportunity for either you personally or your business or organization that will help promote you or your business while giving back to the community.
We are happy to announce that after the 2018 RLS Productions’ Concerts in the Gardens™ summer series a total of $41,000 has been raised and donated for the Wenatchee Valley College Foundation with over $27.000 going into our RLS Productions’ Endowment account and $14,000 of this being awarded in $1,000 scholarships to students in need at WVC.
