Sponsor of the Week: RogersJune 22, 2010
The 2010 Wreckhouse International Jazz & Blues Festival would not be possible without the support of our corporate and media sponsors. To show our appreciation for their support, Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues will be showcasing a different sponsor each week. This week’s sponsor of the week is Rogers.
Rogers can fulfill all communications needs, be it Cable television, Internet service, wireless phone or home phone. What is sometimes overlooked is the role Rogers plays in the community.
Since opening for business in Newfoundland, Rogers has donated thousands of dollars to area charities, foundations and non-profit organizations across the island. A significant portion of their community investments has gone to support educational programs and projects focusing on children.
The local music scene has also benefited from Rogers generosity. In April, Rogers was a major sponsor of the 2010 Juno Awards, which highlighted the musical culture of Newfoundland and Labrador. Ken Marshall, President (Atlantic Region) for Rogers was Chair of the Host Committee and was a key organizer of “Ruckus on the Edge”. He and his team created a memorable and highly entertaining JUNO Awards week in St. John’s.
The partnerships between Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues and its sponsors are all special. However, Rogers has gone the extra mile for this year’s Festival by committing to a Presenting Sponsorship! This contribution has made the 2010 Corporate Sponsorship Campaign the most successful ever for Wreckhouse Jazz & Blues, and Rogers now owns the title of the largest single corporate sponsor in our organization’s history. We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship for both our organizations.
WJB would like to acknowledge and express gratitude for the contributions of Rogers, the Sponsor of the Week!
