*****THE CORRECT TIME IS: 12PM TO 7PM********
Dear Potential Sponsor,
The Connecticut Institute for Community Development (CICD) Puerto Rican Parade, Inc. Hartford Chapter is proud to announce that it will host the 2016 Annual Greater Hartford Puerto Rican Day Parade followed by the 9th Annual Festival del Coquí on Sunday, June 5, 2016.
We are currently seeking sponsors to ensure both of these events are a success. With an average attendance of 50,000 people, benefits of sponsorship include extensive media coverage that will provide trade advertising. Now is the time to get involved. The parade will follow a route via Hartford’s main streets that will culminate at Bushnell Park where the festival will take place. The parade and the festival are the perfect opportunity for your company to continue demonstrating support for the Latino community and a remarkable way to promote your brand to this critical, loyal and rapidly growing demographic.
Your partnership is invaluable to our success. With your contribution, we will be able to continue enriching our community, particularly by exposing our youth to the beautiful Puerto Rican culture, by hosting our many long standing cultural events such as the Miss Puerto Rico of Hartford Pageant, Maria C. Sanchez Scholarship Golf Tournament and Awards Banquet.
We are excited for you to join us! The deadline for sponsorship is April 24, 2016. For more information, please contact the offices of CICD Puerto Rican Parade (860) 904-7860 or via email at CICDPRParade@gmail.com.
Thank you in advance for your continued support of our community. Together we can make a difference.
