It was going to be huge, but now the 10th anniversary of Picnic in the Park may not happen at all.
The reason? The 2015 financial backer has had to pull out. Without their funding, PiP’s organisers can’t pay for the logistics to put on the event this year. It’s that simple.
It’s also tragic. Tragic, because Hong Kong Resorts have agreed that they can extend the event to a 3-day festival. Tragic too, because they’ve agreed that they can hold the event on the main Tai Pak Beach. The 2015 Picnic in the Park festival was going to be fantastic.
It still can be. But they need headline sponsors quickly. If five sponsors contribute $100,000 each, they can stage a one-day event. If 10 sponsors each contribute the same amount, they can put on the full 3-day festival.
Can your company save Picnic in the Park? 10,000 people will love you if you can. They’ll love your commitment to our community, they’ll love your generosity and they’ll love your brand.
Please contact PiP organisers urgently if you are willing to sponsor $ 100,000.
Their go/not go deadline is 10 July 2015.
