2023 Comprehensive Sponsorship Opportunities
Comprehensive Sponsors are critical partners in our success in fulfilling our mission. Comprehensive sponsors are asked to give their 2023 gifts at the beginning of the year to be recognized as GCA sponsors throughout the entire year. Your support is even more important than ever to cover a major portion of our operating budget, and to provide scholarships to deserving girls to participate in our programs. Each sponsorship level includes recognition and reservations to our events so you can stay up to date with what the GCA has been doing to help transform the lives of girls in West Michigan. You can learn more about our current plans for each of our events below:
“Raise Your Voice” Hosted Luncheon is an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the unique opportunity we provide for girls across West Michigan to learn leadership skills and to grow their self-confidence through the magic of music. The GCA provides lunch, and we ask attendees t make a contribution to help us accomplish our mission. The event is on April 24, 2024 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
“Let Their Voice Be Heard” Benefit includes a cocktail reception, dinner, and entertainment. In this festive environment we celebrate the GCA and honor a community leader and role model for the girls we serve. This year’s Honoree is a pair of extraordinary musicians and music educators, Duane and Kaye Davis. The Benefit will be held on Tuesday, November 14, 2023 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Watermark Country Club.
High Notes Cabaret is our exclusive donor appreciation event for our High Notes donors, who give $1,000 or more each year. This summer event will feature an outdoor performance from one of our singers and an opportunity to learn more about the GCA from our staff and volunteers.
