Plattsburgh The Rotary Club of Plattsburgh is currently seeking sponsors for its annual Bed Race Event, which will be part of the 2012 Battle of Plattsburgh Commemorative Weekend.
The bed race has become a signature event for the Rotary Club and enables the club to make thousands of dollars in contributions to local community organizations each year. Some of the local organizations that have benefitted from the generosity of the Rotary Club of Plattsburgh over the last year include the Strand Restoration Project, Clinton Community College Foundation, Plattsburgh State Foundation, CVPH School of Radiology, Plattsburgh YMCA camperships, and the Plattsburgh Public Library, just to name a few.
A limited number of sponsorships are currently available at a variety of levels including the “King” sponsorship of $1,200.00, “Queen” sponsorship of $750.00, “Twin” sponsorship of $350.00, and $75.00 team entry sponsorships.
The “Twin” level sponsorship and higher come with a package of promotional opportunities, including advertising with radio station Y106.3. For more information, contact Rotarian Keri Mack at firstname.lastname@example.org before July 18.
The bed races will take place on City Hall Place in downtown Plattsburgh beginning at approximately 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8, which will follow the annual Battle of Plattsburgh parade and the Rotary Club’s Annual Roducky Derby.
The top three teams out of 32 entries will receive prizes ranging from $500-$100, and the team who is chosen for the “Best Themed” entry will be awarded $150. The prize money will be adjusted according to the number of teams registered. The full rules and regulations of the event, along with registration forms, are available online at www.plattsburghrotary.org.
