Signature Sponsorship Events
M & T Bank's GardenFest of Lights Corporate Preview
Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden offers many corporate sponsorship opportunities and is always interested in new ways to partner with organizations and corporations in the community beyond the Garden's established special events open to the public like M & T Bank's GardenFest of Lights Corporate Preview event held in the Garden's Conservatory.
In it's fifth year, M & T Bank's partnership with the Garden in sponsoring this signature event is an example of a successful and beneficial partnership and event. With every year the event has grown in the number of guest attending and established wonderful opportunities for M &T Bank's clients to learn about the Garden and for the Garden's Corporate constituents to learn about M & T Bank's services.
This event is very exclusive as it is currently the only event where a corporations name is included in the name of the event. Sponsoring this event also allows the Garden to recognize M & T Bank in it's Honor Roll of Donors, through press releases and in mailings and newsletters to business member prospects and all Garden members.
If you are interested in sponsoring a signature event at the Garden, please call the Garden's Development Manager at (804) 262-9887 ext. 311.
