Sponsoring: A Unique Marketing Opportunity

The 2009 Boston Monster March will be the most talked about Halloween
festival in Boston, with stunning visuals and over five million
impressions through free press coverage and print, radio, web, and
television ads. This is a unique opportunity to present your brand and
message to millions of people at less than a tenth of a penny per
impression in a way that generates good will, builds your business, and
helps charity. Proceeds benefit the Samaritans, the international non-profit that runs a crisis hotline for the suicidal or those who just need to talk.

The Boston Monster March is a themed charity walk targeting mainly young adults, and some families.

Thousands will parade in Halloween costumes on Saturday October 24,
2009. The walk starts and ends on Boston City Hall Plaza with a festival
that includes music, a costume competition, skits, interactive
activities, and dozens of vendors. We expect 4,000 registered attendees
plus around 10,000 visitors through this heavily trafficked area. Food
vendors may arrive as early as 9am and we ask all vendors to come at
11pm, and to leave by 11pm.

The event is being run by a professional promoter who runs Boston’s most popular event blog: WeirdBostonEvents.org
and has numerous connections in the media community. The aggressive
public relations campaign includes press releases and alliances with
major newspapers, radio stations, schools, non-profits, and community
groups in Greater Boston. The event has the full support of The City of
