A Letter From George Hellyer

On behalf of the Grand Forks Park District, I am pleased to present our sponsorship packet. The goal of our sponsorship sales is to generate revenue that will help maintain our great facilities and enhance our supporting programs for citizens of the Grand Forks community.

Our Partnership with ICON Sports Marketing:
ICON Sports Marketing is a nationally recognized firm with experience in digital and technology integration solutions in athletic and recreation facilities. The Grand Forks Park District has partnered with ICON Sports Marketing to represent them in advertising and sponsorship securement within parks and facilities owned and operated by the Grand Forks Park District. ICON Sports Marketing is providing all equipment, signage, installation, solicitation, contract securement and maintenance. Proceeds that the Park District receives will go back into enhancing and maintaining parks and facilities (i.e. playgrounds, fitness equipment, and more).

The Park District has long been embraced by our community. Most recently, we are grateful for the generous contributions that have allowed us to build Choice Health & Fitness, ICON Sports Center and Scheels Sports Complex. Our facilities and our programs are considered among the best in the region.

With continued growth of the Park District through added facilities and an exponential increase in participation within our programs, we have decided to streamline the process of our corporate marketing. In doing so, we felt it was in the best interest of the Park District to partner with ICON, a firm with national expertise in sports and recreational marketing.
What does this mean for our YOU, our marketing and sponsorship partners? We will…
• Develop a model that will enhance the recognition and image of our sponsors
• Eliminate “duplicate” asks for our sponsors
• Create sponsorship opportunities that deliver effective messages for the investment
• Provide sponsors the ability to choose their participation level

Thank you in advance for your consideration. We look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of our community.

George Hellyer
Executive Director
Grand Forks Park District
