Sponsorship and Advertising Opportunities

We would love your support to put on the 14th year of the Nutcracker on Ice.  The show is
produced 100% by volunteers from the Metro Edge Figure skating club.  Our primary audience
is families in the St. Louis area. We also draw a large number of Girl Scout troops to our
shows. We are the only figure skating production of The Nutcracker in Missouri. One of
our goals is to showcase the talent of the St. Louis skaters and recognize their coaches before
the St. Louis community. The story itself is very family friendly.

Visibility:
Local and Media coverage of this event continues to grow each year as over 3500 skating fans
attend our 4 shows annually. Our publicity plan includes media appearances (including
appearing in the Christmas in St. Louis parade on Thanksgiving, a booth at the Webster Holiday
Open House, performance in the Ameren Missouri Festival Of Lights at Kiener Plaza, and appearances
on local news shows), print coverage, public service announcements and placement on many community calendars.

Challenges / Community Support Needed:
We are dedicated to making this a special experience for the skaters who participate and
provide an opportunity to all who participate to give back to the community through our food
drive.
 
We want to continue to keep the show affordable to families so many may enjoy the magic of a
show on ice! The costs of doing a show can be daunting; show expenses run over $25K
annually. In addition to ice rental, we must rent lighting and music equipment and purchase
materials for costumes and sets. Our volunteers provide over 2000 volunteer hours to execute
this show, including all the labor for our costumes and sets, but as you can see the costs are
still substantial.

Information on corporate sponsorships and advertising in our program can be found
below. Thank you in advance for your interest and consideration.
