Would you like to bring more customer attention to your business? At the same time, would you like to help out one of our many non-profit organizations in our community without having to organize fundraisers or sell tickets? Well you can. For only $75 you can register to become a candidate Sunland-Tujunga’s Honorary Mayor sponsored by the Sunland-Tujunga Chamber.
How does it work? Any Sunland-Tujunga resident or a representative from any Chamber member business or a representative from any Chamber member non-profit organization* may register to become a candidate for this position. When registering each applicant will be asked to choose the Chamber member business and the Chamber member non-profit that they want to team with to collect donations for the Honorary Mayor position. Each team, consisting of the Mayoral candidate, Chamber business and Chamber non-profit organization will actively pursue donations for their candidate. The Chamber business will display signage for their candidate and the non-profit organization they are sponsoring with a collection jar. Each candidate can then work with their non-profit if they wish to have other fundraising events during the campaign period that runs from September 15 to November 15, 2016.
Why be Sunland-Tujunga’s Honorary Mayor? As the Honorary Mayor, you become an honorary dignitary and representative of the Sunland-Tujunga Chamber of Commerce. You will join a long list of other distinguished citizens who have held this position of honor and pride. You will be invited to attend many public events, such as, grand openings, ribbon cuttings, ride in the 4th of July parade and more. With access to the official “Honorary Mayor Facebook Page” you can network with others in the community and bring awareness to the Honorary Mayor, our businesses and the Sunland-Tujunga Chamber of Commerce.
Who will receive 50% of the proceeds collected during the campaign? This is your opportunity to bring recognition to some of our community businesses, attention and much needed funds to some of our worthwhile non-profit organizations. 50% of the proceeds will be presented to the correlating non-profit organization at an event to be held to announce the winner of the Honorary Mayor’s Race in December 2016.
To win this Honorary Mayor position, be the candidate that brings in the most money in ticket donations.
Other prizes and benefits too numerous to mention are included in this event.
