Dear Prospective Sponsor,

The weekend of April 26 - 30, 2018 "Bears Of The West", Phoenix will once again be hosting approximately 200 “bears” from across the nation for our annual "Phurfest" event. As in years past, we strive to put together the best possible program, with the support of sponsors and advertisers both locally and nationally. Phurfest participants are also encouraged to support the businesses whose sponsorship is so important to this annual event. 

This years’ event will be benefiting Mulligan’s Manor. Mulligan’s Manor is a loving and supportive group home dedicated to at-risk gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and heterosexual adolescents ranging from 12 to 17 years old. It is a family-oriented, LGBTQA (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Ally) community that nurtures and empowers youth to reach their full potential, as well as provide tools for a safe and healthy life.

Any help or donations would be appreciated. We provide all registered participants with a “Welcome Bag” of gifts, valley info, publications and other goodies. We give our advertisers’ and sponsors’ the opportunity to provide additional items for these bags. We also accept donations for our famous “Silent Auction” held during the event. With your donations of goods and/or services we can raise more money for our charity as well. As you can see any support you can give, gives us a better chance to give back to the community.

We can assist you in putting together an ad, (if you don’t already have one) or you can provide us with camera-ready artwork of your own. Please see attachments for more information. Thank you in advance for supporting the bear community in Phoenix, and we look forward to the opportunity to work with you on this popular event. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
