Dear Windy City Partner,
It is with great enthusiasm and anticipation that we extend the hand of partnership. We, the Planning Committee for the Windy City West Indian Carnival (Windy City Carnival), ask that you join with us to establish a Midwest hub for Carnival celebrations. As we partner with other Carnival festivities nationwide, we know that you can appreciate the spectacle and branding opportunities that Carnival provides. We are hoping that you would consider making us an integral part of your sales portfolio.
As the third largest North American city, Chicago is home to a diverse population. It is a thriving hub for music and culture and is the proud home to our 44th U.S. President, Barack Obama. In fact, our Carnival is just over a mile away from the President's home; on the Midway Plaisance, located on the historic Campus of the University of Chicago. We have met with City and Community leaders to position the Windy City Carnival as a key celebration of culture and cuisines.
Windy City West Indian Carnival will take place on Saturday, August 19, 2017. The day will include a traditional parade of bands, live performances, thousands of carnival goers, and hopefully you!
Please see the accompanying documents for further details on vendor registration and sponsorship opportunities. If you should have any questions and/or concerns, feel free to contact Lystra Audain, at (773) 492-0936 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for your consideration.
