Dear Friend of the Fair: The 2014 Washington Town & Country Fair will once again open with the Queen Contest on Wednesday evening, August 6. The Queen Contest is one of the first attractions of the Fair. One of the reasons this event is a success is due to the participation of our businesses as Contest Sponsors. As in the past, the opportunity to sponsor a contestant will be limited to twenty-five businesses. The fee for our sponsorship this year is $500. The names of the twenty-five sponsors will be drawn at the annual Chamber Banquet on March 29, 2014. To be eligible for the drawing, we must receive the enclosed postcard at the Chamber office no later than Wednesday, March 26, 2014. If selected to sponsor a Queen candidate, you will receive the following benefits:
An invitation to attend the sponsor bar-b-que
Four VIP area seating passes to attend the Queen coronation
Your company listed as a Queen Sponsor in the fair catalog
A 1” x 1½” ad on the back of the coronation program
Ongoing coverage of all Queen Events in the Missourian
The Queen Contest Sponsors also underwrite four scholarships, which are awarded to the Queen, 1st and 2nd Runner up, and the Miss Congeniality winner. For many girls, this is a great reason to enter the contest. In addition to announcing our fair activities and selecting our Queen Sponsors at the banquet, we will auction off the fair catalog ads. Again this year we will include a bonus with the purchase of each ad. The successful bidders will receive a VIP package, which includes a parking pass for one night at the fair, four daily tickets and four Main Stage VIP seating passes for the chosen day. We will offer four VIP packages – one for Thursday through Sunday night at the fair. The minimum bid will be $500.00 for each ad/ VIP package. Additional information will be sent to the twenty-five businesses chosen to be Queen Contestant Sponsors. Thank you for your past support of the Fair. Please “Meet Me at the Fair”, August 6-10, 2014.
