Anything that is eye-appealing or sells your product as it would with a counter display. We give each sponsor 2.5 feet square of table space. Some have 1-sheets in Lucite stand-ups. Some of those stand-ups have business cards or discount cards. Some sponsors provide a endless loop DVD playing their video. You are limited only by space and good taste.
Have you ever walked past a roulette wheel in Las Vegas? People are two or three deep watching it spin seeing if it will hit “my number.” At our golf tournament everyone wins something and while golfers are waiting to spin the wheel they are surrounded by our sponsor table. Our sponsors are all represented with “point of purchase” or “counter displays.” Not only are the golfers looking to see what they would like to win, but they are also seeing your product in it’s commercial presentation.
The WOG is used in different ways at our events. At Registration purchasers of the Mulligan Package get to spin the Wheel to win a overnight stay at the Morongo Casino and two rounds of golf at the Morongo Golf Course at Tukwet Canyon. After the tournament every golfer gets to spin the wheel. Unlike Las Vegas everyone wins who spins the Wheel of Golf.
The Wheel of Golf is a Las Vegas-style roulette wheel with golf scores as the numbers on the wheel from 32-41. Spin the wheel twice and you have an 18-hole score.
YOU CALL THE SYNERGY BETWEEN YOUR SPONSORS AND THE CHARITIES THE PERFECT WIN-WIN-WIN SITUATION. CAN YOU EXPLAIN?
It’s simple. As an example in 2015, Wilson Staff donates two $120 wedges to each of our events. One wedge will be won by the Chipping Contest winner. The other wedge will go to the charity for their raffle or auction. The Charity WINS because we provide thousands of dollars of product they can’t get. The golfer WINS because he will either win it or buy it at a discounted price, with the charity keeping the revenue. Wilson WINS because they will have more than 3,000 golfers swing their wedges to see how they feel and perform. So everybody wins.
When a company makes a new golf product how do they get golfers to know about it?
The Mulligan Man brands and samples your product in a unique way. Instead of a two-dimensional and expensive magazine ad our golfers see, feel and touch new products. Companies spend significant dollars for Demo Days at golf courses. We are creating as many as 30 Demo Days for your without requiring your attendance.
The demographic at these charity golf tournaments are mostly men between the ages of 25-65 with enough discretionary income to spend $250-$750 to play in charity golf tournament. It’s hard to get new product into golf shops or big box stores, they want to know the product is in demand. The hardest thing for sponsors/manufacturers to create is demand. By presenting our sponsors items in various ways, by displaying their logo, by providing collateral so golfers can learn about products we help to create demand.
Because we will work 30+ events annually we market our sponsors at these events in a subtle but effective way. It’s worth it to Wilson Staff to donate 60 FC Tour Wedges valued at $120 dollars because in the chipping contest we create, golfers must use the Wilson Staff wedge. Getting golfers to see and try new equipment is very difficult for manufacturers so they participate willingly.
We provide gift cards, contest prizes, items for your raffle and silent/Live auctions. Tournaments average between $20,000-$30,000 in donated goods and services. Our Sponsor page highlights those sponsors participating in our events.
No we serve as consultants. An event planner does everything for your event from golf course acquisition to brochure design. We show you how to do everything yourself and then lead you to vendors whose services we know to be fair, reasonable and of the utmost quality.An Event Planner’s fees will be much higher than ours or their fees might appear lower but then they get kickbacks from their vendors.
There are a number of packages offered for our services, so there is a range of fees. We try to tailor our services to the organization’s needs. Call for more information on pricing.
