On September 3, 2016 South Shore Great Pumpkin Challenge is attempting to set a new record for The Longest Journey in a pumpkin boat “paddling” on the Taunton River. The event is to raise awareness of the importance of getting kids in the dirt and to grow something. Though we have raised most of the funds for our event, we need support to pay for the necessary officials from Guinness to make this a true record.

Our organization’s mission is to support getting schools to get kids in the dirt and grow something. Each year we give out giant pumpkin seedlings and ask schools to grow them on the school grounds. The school with the heaviest pumpkin at our weight off wins a grant for $1000.00 Our goal with this run is to get better outreach across the New England and helps us inspire kids to do something a little crazy with what they grow.

We would be grateful if you could support our Taunton River. We anticipate over 300 people attending this event, and several Providence RI as well as Boston MA news outlets to cover the event. Last year’s event was re aired across the county and overseas as well This year we are expecting it to be even bigger. If you support us, pending your level we will include you in all marketing materials, to our website and plan on recognizing your organization at our event.

The amount you give is completely up to you. Currently, we need to raise $10,000. The following are some options to consider when considering my sponsorship request:

$10,000 Platinum Sponsor Your name and description on our marketing materials and website, exclusivity logo rights on the lead pumpkin.

$5,000 Gold Sponsor Your name, logo on all marketing materials, website, and recognition at our run with logo on one of the pumpkins

$2,500 Silver Sponsor Your logo on marketing materials and second pumpkin (limited to 5 spots)

$1,000 General Sponsor Your logo on a banner at the start and finish of the run, promoted on social media.
