Last Saturday, we were recognized by our friends the Bloomington Thunder as their Co-Sponsors of the Year for our continued work with the franchise and we couldn’t be more ecstatic!! Doing roofing and siding everyday in Illinois, moments like these remind us life is bigger than just replacing asphalt shingles & vinyl siding…
That being said, we wanted to take this moment to recognize those within the organization who’ve made becoming more involved pain-free: Thank you to Gloria and Connor of the Bloomington Thunder!! Without your work behind-the-scenes, our plans for this partnership couldn’t have become ACTION. You’ve made this group of roofers extremely happy we decided to partner.
When we first reached out about this sponsorship opportunity, admittedly we only thought about getting our “Roofing Siding Gutters” logo on a high traffic area in the stadium. Then it dawned on us: With careful planning, we can maximize this partnership and get the children of the area involved. For those who don’t understand, any and all sports sponsorship opportunities typically come with an attached hospitality package for the group sponsoring. Meaning…we get a bunch of tickets – maybe a sky box. Most other companies simply use them for company outings, random nights out, and their staff.
We instead asked our girl Gloria: “What groups of aspiring kids can we give this hospitality package to? Let’s give back!” Her and the team thought of some ideas and we got to work immediately.
Point blank: This sponsorship has opened up so many more doors than we originally anticipated. Now, we are on the hunt for similar opportunities for our Lake Zurich team of roofers and siding contractors. With the Kane County Cougars on our sponsorship roster, we are in for a fun summer, but we are always looking for more!
That being said, if you or anyone you know, come across any local sponsorship opportunities in the Lake County area and it involves the kids; LET US KNOW!!
Once again, thanks to the Bloomington Thunder for this opportunity and we look forward to finishing the year strong!
