Every third Saturday in September, the City of Morrison offers an event that transforms an historic downtown into a concrete and glass canvas on which any inspiring artist may reveal their talents. This day-long transformation draws thousands of participants and observers from throughout the area and leaves the downtown visibly changed for several weeks to follow.
The creative atmosphere includes great music, a large variety of foods prepared on location by local organizations raising money to support their yearly projects, and the interaction of friends and neighbors sharing smiles, renewing relationships and creating memories that the family will cherish for years.
Paint The Town (PTT) has been appropriately assigned as the title of the celebration, and this successful gathering is celebrating its nineteenth year in existence. How does such an undertaking enjoy such a growing success?
The answer is very simple. Paint The Town sponsors have viewed the opportunity to support Paint The Town as a productive investment of their money and time and the returns to the sponsors and the community is almost immeasurable.
Sponsorships are available in five levels of contribution with each level receiving advertising packages that are appropriate for the investment.
Michelangelo Sponsors ($2500) receive a DVD of the event, local recognition in the media, logo imprints on the classic t-shirt, logo painted on Main Street, graphic link from the PTT website and sponsor t-shirts.
Rembrandt Sponsors ($1000) are allowed an entertainment venue or food court choice, logo on the PTT t-shirt, logo painted on Main Street, graphic link on PTT website, and t-shirts.
The Van Gogh Sponsor ($500) is the largest in number and the package is similar to the Rembrandt but less the venue option.
Picasso Sponsors ($250) is also a sizable group and they receive a package similar to the Van Gogh but without the t-shirt recognition.
The Warhol Sponsors ($100) receive publicity identification and website listings.
Friends ($0-99) are included on the website listing at paintthetownmorrison.com.
All of these contributing sponsors recognize the contribution that Paint The Town makes toward drawing people to downtown Morrison and establishing a positive reputation for the community that breeds pride in its current residents and feeds all visitors with pleasant memories that are shared whenever they return home.
All sponsors are listed on the website: paintthetownmorrison.com. They deserve a community Thank You and this is best presented by considering them first when you make a purchase.
