Since 2005, has hosted Cheshire's Lights of Hope to raising money to help those in need within our community. One night every November, the streets of Cheshire are lit up with nearly 50,000 luminary bags. This effort is a symbol of our community's commitment to helping those in need and supporting one another-neighbors helping neighbors. The now-annual Cheshire's Lights of Hope event has brought together our community by the simple act of purchasing a luminary bag, lighting a single candle in the bag and illuminating our wonderful town. Upwards of 100 volunteers turn out every year to bring the event to fruition. From street captains to clean-up crew, the town has made this event its own and has helped hundreds of area families. Over the past 15 years, our local charity has raised funds totaling $985,000 and this year we plan to hit the $1,000,000 mark! 100 percent of proceeds raised go directly to charities!
The Cheshire Chamber of Commerce is proud of how far this event has come and could not have done it without the support of local businesses and residents. This year, we will be hosting our 16th annual event on Saturday, Nov. 14. We invite you to support this year's event in the form of sponsorship. With the historic circumstances of this year, "neighbors helping neighbors" means more than ever to those living in our community. Each level of sponsorship will have a sign placed along the Mile of Hope with their logo and level of sponsorship. The Mile of Hope is a one-mile section in the center of our town that is lit up with over 2,000 luminaries.
Hundreds of Cheshire residents and visitors from surrounding towns drive the Mile of Hope each year during the Cheshire's Lights of Hope event-it is truly awe-inspiring.
In addition to your sign on the Mile of Hope, any business located outside the Mile will also be offered 20 luminaries to place in front of their business, similar to how, residents place their luminaries outside their homes. Along with your pledge, indicate if you would like us to deliver 20 luminaries to your business.
Please send a copy of your logo in jpeg, tiff or gif format to email@example.com, so your logo can be added to our signs and website.
