Sponsorship Opportunities

Join the Celebration

The BHP Enchanted Forest is celebrating 20 years in 2018/2019 as Canada's most spectacular drive-through holiday light tour and Saskatchewan's top winter visitor attraction. Attracting 77,000 visitors last year, the annual Holiday Light Tour is a major fundraiser for both the Saskatoon City Hospital Foundation and the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation, sharing more than $200,000 annually. The Foundations are proud to feature BHP as the title sponsor and together we invite your business to sponsor your own enchanted holiday light display.

A Spectacular Sponsorship Opportunity

A limited number of light displays are currently available for sponsorship (please see list below). Take advantage of a bright public relations opportunity by placing your business name on a one-of-a-kind display while they last. Last year’s sponsors receive first option to continue with their sponsorship. Should they choose to move on, their light display will then be available to a new sponsor. The Deadline to renew sponsorships is September 15, 2018.

Expression of Interest

If you are interested in sponsoring a display that is currently available or if you wish to wait to see which displays become available, please contact Marketing Director Hugh Vassos at hvassos@sasktel.net or call (306) 222-5392 with an expression of interest. Please state the level of sponsorship you are interested in and the display you would be interested in sponsoring if available.

The Sponsorship Investment & Term

Light Display sponsorships range from $1,500 to $5,000 per year. Sponsors may select a one-year or three-year term. Longer term sponsorships guarantee the same light display at the same investment every year. Sponsorship fees are payable no later that November 15, 2018. Once you have selected your display we will forward a sponsorship agreement to be completed and returned at your earliest opportunity to reserve the display of your choice.
