The Great Lakes Carriage Classic
Sponsorship Opportunities

After a two year hiatus, Tri-County Carriage Association (TCCA) will return to the Ancaster Fairgrounds on July 30/31 to host the Great Lakes Carriage Classic, a two day pleasure carriage driving show. This is an exciting year as the show moves into a newly completed 75,000 square foot indoor facility offering greatly expanded indoor ring space, housing for equines and spectator seating. The show brings together competitors from Canada and the United States and gives all the opportunity to show their equines and share the historical sport of carriage driving with the community at large. A vendor area, on-site food service, educational events and social activities are planned during the weekend and admission is free to the general public.

Sponsorship is required to run a show of this caliber and the club is approaching to ask if you would consider sponsoring. Tri-County Carriage Association is not a charity, but as a Not-for-Profit organization, can issue receipts for any sponsorship funds received. This receipt may be utilized by the sponsor for advertising.

Sponsorship levels have been created with corresponding benefits as a guide to those considering offering their support. All sponsors will be recognized during the show, in show handouts, on Facebook and on the TCCA website. Those who donate at or above the $75 level will be a title sponsor for one class and will be invited to present ribbons for the class. At the $250 level and above, the sponsor will be given an ad in the show program, and at the $1000 level and above, the sponsor may display their organization's signs in the two show rings. Any level of sponsorship is greatly appreciated and will be utilized to meet the expenses required to put on this event. TCCA hopes you will join us in the presentation of this event. Your contribution is an investment into the preservation and promotion of this historic sport and we encourage you to partake in the many activities planned during the show.
