Hello Desert Hikers!
I just landed the 2014 Banff Film Festival in Palm Springs after 2 years of trying. Now I need some corporate (or generous private) sponsors to make sure it happens! The date will be Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 and will be held at at the Mary Pickford Theater in Cathedral City.
I NEED your help to make this happen!
If you know of anyone who would like a tax write-off for their sponsorship - let me know. I will also start soliciting local businesses and hopefully we can raise what it takes to make the 2014 Banff Film Festival at the Mary Pickford Theater a total success. I have until September 20 to raise what it takes to pay for the Banff Film (and crew of 1). It looks like it's going to be around $2,500 which is a major
reduction in price from what it could be. I had some success today thanks to the generous support help by Ted - the General Manager at the Mary Pickford. Nevertheless, ANY AMOUNT HELPS in funding the actual cost of hosting the festival. Keep in mind that ear-marked donations to RMRU (www.rmru.org
) with "Banff Fest" noted on the check will go directly to this cause AND you or your company will benefit from this 501(c)(3) donation.
Remember that RMRU are the ones who help hikers just like you in your time of need - so please consider paying it forward by sponsoring our effort to bring some serious outdoor oriented entertainment to the valley and to raise funds for our team.
Your help is appreciated no matter how poor you think you are. If you want to see the 2014 Banff Mountain Film Festival come to the valley, then - let's get to it!
PM me if you can help!
