Here's an alternative sponsorship request for you!
Microsoft & Girl Geek Dinners are hosting a special Girl Geek Dinner at Tech Ed this year on Monday the 1st September. There will be around 300 women at this event at Sky City in Auckland.
As a novel form of advertising, NZ Girl Geek Dinners are going to hand out free t-shirts during the Girl Geek Dinner at TechEd and at the TechEd conference itself. This is as an alternative to handing out flyers. The t-shirts will also be available from the Microsoft Stand and any other company stands who will let us cadge some space - hint hint.
We are looking for sponsors to help cover the costs of making the t-shirts. Sponsorship for t-shirts will cost $500 per business.
In return for sponsoring us you'd get your logo on the back of the t-shirt and on our National and Wellington websites. I am keen to give our existing and previous sponsors first dibs at this and will be limiting the number of sponsors so that the t-shirt doesn't become too cluttered with logos.
But why should you help us? Girl Geek Dinners aim to promote learning in a technology environment and encourage more women into this field. We want to enthuse the next generation of girly geeks and with your help we can reach more people.
Email email@example.com by the 15th of August if you are keen to be on our fantastic t-shirts. We must have sponsorship payment in our national account by the 22nd August in time to print the t-shirts for TechEd. You will also need to provide us with a high quality logo that we can give to the t-shirt designer so that you look your best on our t-shirts.
