Fishing Rodeo Sponsorship Entry Form

Fishing For FUNdraising

LDA Foundation has put a new “spin” on the Annual Fishing Rodeo.  “Catch” a tax write off and “reel” in some fun by taking advantage of our new sponsorship categories.  As a sponsor, your practice will be recognized in the LDA Journal and on the LDA website.  In addition, tournament entries are included in the Corporate, Platinum and Gold levels.  Don’t let your boat “sink” on this great opportunity to support the LDA Foundation.

Why Support the Foundation?

In February 2015, the LDA Foundation, together with partners such as the LDA and LSU School of Dentistry, will be hosting La MOM (Louisiana Mission of Mercy).  A large venue will be transformed into a full service dental clinic with the purpose of:
•    Provide free access to dental care and prevention of dental disease while placing a high priority on patients.
•    Raise public awareness of the difficulty low-income adults and children face in accessing critical dental care.
•    Create dental health care advocates via the hundreds of lay volunteers participating in our event.

The LaMOM preliminary service goals include:
•    Over $500,000 worth of dental care to 1,500 patients, 750 each day, to be seen on a first-come, first-served basis, at no cost to them.
•    200 volunteer dentists to provide diagnosis, treatment and education.
•    Up to 1,200 volunteers such as dental team members, spouses, office staff, hygienists, chairside assistants, lab technicians, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, dental students, hygiene students, pre-dental students, dental supply reps, church groups, college service groups,      community service groups (Kiwanis, Rotary, Lions Club, St. Vincent DePaul, etc.).
•    Financial and in-kind donations to assist with the purchase of needed dental supplies, food for volunteers, signs, printed materials and much more.

In order to fulfill our mission and reach our service goals, the LDA Foundation will need to raise approximately $130,000.  Every dollar raised goes directly toward the event, not to pay any salaries or administrative overhead!  Because the Fishing Rodeo is the Foundation’s only fundraising event, new sponsorship opportunities have been created to support the addition of LaMOM.  Please take a moment to review the enclosed information and consider a sponsorship level that represents your passion for community service in your profession.  Most levels include your entry in the rodeo as well as signage and other promotional coverage.  In addition, all sponsorships are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!  The LDA Foundation’s ability to continue to provide services in the community is due to the generous support of individuals and businesses.  Your assistance is greatly appreciated!
