Seventeen years ago, this coming September 11, our country was devastated in a way that it never had been before: planes were used as weapons with the intent to destroy major cities. Two of them: our nation’s capital, and the city of New York suffered devastating loss. Additionally, another hijacked plane was prevented from reaching its target by the heroic actions of the passengers aboard. It, and all aboard, lie in a field in western Pennsylvania.
In remembrance of that day, the Garden of Reflection Memorial was created to commemorate the lives of all who died that day and all we, as a nation, lost. Over the years, the Garden has become a symbol of renewed hope and faith in the future as well as remembrance of the men and women whose lives were so violently taken from them.
Bucks County Business Connections (BCBC) is sponsoring its 2nd annual spaghetti dinner on September 15 to support the Garden of Reflection. This memorial to the people who perished that day relies on contributions to maintain the grounds and other aspects of the park in Lower Makefield. I am asking you, as a local business owner, to participate in our sponsorship program for this event.
Sponsorship to be included in the booklet, which will be distributed at the dinner is at the following levels:
- First Responder – $100
- A reproduction of your business card
- Patriot – $150
- A quarter page in the booklet that can include your logo and a message about your company or service
- Stars and Stripes – $250
- A half page in the booklet, a table card at the event
- Freedom – $500
- A full-page ad in the booklet, a table card and inclusion on any marketing material
Last year we raised over $8,000 for this event. All proceeds raised went to the Garden of Reflection. This year, we would like to see that number increase and our sponsors receive the acknowledgment for their efforts.
