The non-profit, 501c3 Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame is seeking sponsors and auction item contributions for its third annual online “celebrity” fundraising auction to be held April 17-30, 2017, on the www.biddingforgood.com website which boasts a bidding community numbering more than 450,000 individuals worldwide.
A single $10,000 “Presenting Sponsor” and an unlimited number of $5000 “Gold Sponsors” – as well as auction item donors – will help a worthy, educational cause and enjoy unique exposure opportunities.
The Hall of Fame honors the most noteworthy members of the Massachusetts broadcast industry, commemorates their singular achievements and meritorious contributions to the profession, and preserves their work for future generations. In October 2016, the Hall of Fame inducted 16 accomplished and well known broadcasters at an induction and awards luncheon sponsored by the Subaru Dealers of New England and attended by more than 350 broadcasters and invited guests. In all, over its ten-year history, the Hall of Fame has honored 141 broadcasters, and plaques representing those inductees are mounted proudly on a Massachusetts Broadcasters “Wall of Fame” on the Canton, MA, campus of our host organization, Massasoit Community College.
Last year’s Hall of Fame “Celebrity” Auction (https://goo.gl/iaKhFR) was supported by television and radio stations throughout Massachusetts, including all four major Boston network affiliate TV stations. Each auction item was described in full, and each donor was generously credited. In 2017, we’ll be publicizing our auction sponsors and contributors to conventional media outlets throughout the state and on the vast networks of social media.
If you or your organization is interested in sponsoring our 2017 auction, or in donating an auction item or two (or three, or more!), please let us know. We’ll need all of the details about your organization and about the items you’re contributing (including the item value). If you have questions, or if you wish to contribute, please contact:
Burt Peretsky, Executive Director, Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame
Thank you in advance!
