HC Rowing Seeking Business Sponsors

Wednesday, 7 February 2018

Want to be part of helping our rowers win on the water? Howick College Rowing are seeking sponsors to assist with funding for purchasing boats and gear to continue strengthening rowing at Howick College.


To find out how you or your business can be part of helping our students achieve their rowing goals, please check out the attached proposal for information. If you have any queries, please contact Roger: rgribble@frl.co.nz.


We have come a long way in a short time, after the introduction of the sport to the school by the late Dudley Storey (NZ Olympian and gold medallist) and Keith Hibbard (Hibbo to the rowers) three years ago.


The rowing committee (made up of parents and coaches and a representative from the school) is applying for grants to assist in the purchase of boats and gear, and assistance with coaching etc. The rowers are holding car washes, sausage sizzles, raffles, and an erg team ultra marathon to keep the costs down for our rowers and families.


We now need sponsors to assist and seek to bring on board persons or businesses who have or do have a relationship with our school, that we are happy to have on our equipment, and on our sponsors signboard at our regattas in Auckland, and other venues. The National Rowing regatta (Maadi Cup) is a televised event.


We are happy to provide photo opportunities with our club to assist in your marketing and acknowledgement of the financial contribution if required.


As this is our first year of seeking sponsors we are providing initial sponsors with an extended deal, through to the end of the 2019 season which includes the Maadi Cup at Lake Karapiro.
