HARTFORD, Conn. - Organizers of University of Connecticut's Women's Basketball Victory Celebration, which will take place this Sunday in Hartford, are quickly seeking sponsor donations to help fund the events. A 4:00 p.m. parade will begin and end at the State Capitol Building and will be immediately followed by a celebration rally with the team on the north steps of the Capitol.
The events are being held to congratulate and honor the UConn women's basketball team for winning the 2013 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Championship. Parade and rally organizers are relying on private funds to support the parade and the rally.
"These celebratory events are produced by the Hartford Business Improvement District and the MetroHartford Alliance in collaboration with the City of Hartford and the State of Connecticut and a number of civic and business organizations," said Michael Zaleski, Executive Director of the Hartford Business Improvement District (HBID). "As in past parade years, we are seeking the financial support of the region's and state's business community to help pay for the many services and materials needed to stage a public event of this size."
Companies may choose from several sponsorship levels and discuss parade sponsorship opportunities, contact Michael Zaleski at the Hartford Business Improvement District (HBID) at 860-728-2274 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
