On behalf of the Founding Directors, we would greatly appreciate your consideration for sponsorship of the 10th Anniversary Albany Chefs’ Food & Wine Festival: Wine & Dine for the Arts. Attached, please find the sponsorship packages for the Festival that will be held on January 17-19 2019, at the Empire State Plaza in Albany. I’d be happy to further explain the excellence and excitement surrounding the event as well as the impact of the educational programs of each of our Arts beneficiaries. As generous past sponsors and attendees, you know the quality and reach of our event. Your earliest commitment will ensure our ability to maximize branding opportunities, especially for those that have interest in major sponsorship.

The Albany Chefs’ Food & Wine Festival is widely recognized as the “Northeast’s Premier Culinary Event.” Our participating chefs, restaurateurs and sponsors have long found value in our extensive marketing campaign that reaches more than a million people annually, aligning them with our brand and providing excellent positioning in front of their target audiences. The Festival events sell out annually, hosting more than 3500 people active in our arts and culinary communities.

To date, our all-volunteer Board (we have no paid staff) has donated more than $925,000 to deserving Arts organizations in Albany. Please consider a sponsorship for the 2019 Albany Chefs’ Food & Wine Festival: Wine & Dine for the Arts by selecting one of the available sponsorship opportunities, or we will gladly customize a package to fit your company’s budget and promotional requirements.
