This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Leadership New Braunfels program. The Leadership New Braunfels Alumni Association has chosen to implement a commemorative project that will benefit future LNB classes, as well as the entire community of New Braunfels: Innovate Honors Hall.
Honors Hall is a unique and important space in the community – used by Leadership classes and the Chamber of Commerce for class days and events, and also by all citizens of the community. It is used by area businesses, non-profits and government entities for community and committee meetings, seminars, receptions, dinners and classes, to name a few.
Honors Hall is a space that may be used by all and, most importantly, a space which honors citizens who made significant contributions to the community of New Braunfels. As such, it should always be experienced in a manner that represents well the professionalism and dedication of those memorialized on its walls. Currently, that is not the case.
The audio visual system is in dire need of an upgrade and there are a number of aesthetic revisions that will be made to modernize the space to make it 21st century-ready. The proposed technological transformation includes (but not limited to) automated drop-down screen with in-closet A/V stack, new sound system and microphones for presenters, and a wall-mounted digital touch panel display. Additionally, lighting and digital sound recording equipment will be installed to allow for filming presenters and classes. This service will be available to tenants as a value-add to using Honors Hall.
The LNB Alumni Association is launching a fundraising campaign to raise the necessary capital to make these important changes. We hope you will see the value in this investment – for the program and for future generations of New Braunfelsers.
There are a number of sponsorship opportunities available. These sponsorship levels also include any request we would traditionally have made for the annual scholarship fundraiser in the spring. This year’s event will be a gala for which we will sell admission tickets. We will not ask you to sponsor it as a fundraiser.
Platinum Leader (maximum of 4) – $7,500.00
Gold Leader (maximum of 6) – $5,000.00
Silver Leader – $2,500.00
Bronze Leader – $1,000.00
Copper Leader – $500.00
Our fundraising campaign will kick off next week at the October 4 Leaders Reception, from 6 – 7pm at the Civic Center, where we will introduce the Class of 2017. It will end at the annual Fundraiser on March 2, 2017. The work will be completed in time for the final Leadership New Braunfels class day on Tuesday, May 2, 2017
If you are able to make a commitment immediately, we can defer invoicing until 2017 if you wish.
