EL ZARIBAH SHRINE 2022 FEZTIVAL OF TREES RULES AND GUIDELINES

 

The FEZtival of Trees fundraiser is an excellent opportunity for a business to show their philanthropic support while receiving public recognition for their contribution.  This type of event has been hosted by other Shrine organizations around the United States for several years.  The El Zaribah Shrine is sponsoring its second annual FEZtival of Trees December 2, 3, & 4, 2022.

Based on the success of other events that we have sponsored, we expect several thousand people to view the trees.  Our goal for the 2022 year, we anticipate several sponsors to provide 30 trees.

The deadline for Tree Sponsor applications is: November 23, 2022
Space is available on a first-come first-committed basis.

About the FEZtival of Trees:

Business sponsors will be recognized with signage at the event, on event promotion materials (including social media, website, and e-mails), in the El Zaribah Shrine Arabian Tales Newsletter, and in the media.  Businesses are also encouraged to promote your involvement through your social media channels, advertising, internal and external e-mails.  You are also welcome to distribute promotional materials and/or conduct sampling or demos for your company within your display area, subject to approval.

You may select a theme for your tree.  The theme will be displayed under your company name or logo and on the raffle container.  The container will be provided by El Zaribah Shrine.

Your tree theme is limited only to your imagination.  Some sample themes are ASU Sun Devils, trains, dinosaurs, and clowns.  In another Shrine FEZtival of Trees event, a car dealership included a used car as a gift.  The car was displayed prominently in the parking lot with the company’s name on it. 

Almost any type of company can be a sponsor: retailers, grocery stores, car dealers, tire stores, sporting goods stores, barber shops, lumber yards, and restaurants.

The public is invited to view the trees during the display periods: Friday, December 2, 3, and 4th.
