Be A Sponsor!

TO: Friends of Songwriters Gallery

Dear business owners, music fans, and individual supporters of the Songwriters Gallery,

First, and most of all, "Thank You" for your support of the previous events. We can be proud that this is one of the finest music, entertainment, and educational events in the Black Hills and the region; and it would not be happening if we did not have your financial help and your attendance at our shows and workshops. That said, 'tis the season, the Song Season! We have a great show scheduled with some fantastic talent. You won't want to miss it!

Yes, we would appreciate your help once again in any way possible. First, please "spread the word", so folks near and far know that Hot Springs is the place to be June 2nd and 3rd. Second, you may sponsor the Gallery by donating $50, $100 or more. Please see details below. Thanks to your support, we are hopeful the Songwriters Gallery will continue for years to come!

  • $50 ... lists your name in the table program, plus one ticket. (Please specify night you would like the ticket.)

  • $100 ... lists your name in the table program, plus your business logo on a placard on sidewalk "sandwich-boards", plus one ticket. (Please specify which night you would like the ticket.)

  • $200...does all of the above, plus ensures seating for two for both nights.

  • Individuals who would like to donate are also welcome, and if requested, will receive a "thank you" in the program.

The decision has been made to have only one major Songwriters Gallery per year, to be held in early June in Hot Springs. We want this event to grow and be a major destination attraction. The Songwriters Gallery will be providing smaller writing retreats one or two times per year in the Black Hills, but want to maintain the Hot Springs Gallery as "The One", one we would like to expand on.

On a personal note ...we are in need of a Title Sponsor. The first three Galleries have been "building" events. Our main funding has come from workshop fees and ticket sales, and support from sponsors. However, budget shortfalls have been covered by me (David Lee Brown). A title sponsor is basically a large-dollar-amount sponsor, $1,500 - $5,000. These sponsors would have high visibility recognition as a main sponsor: The Songwriters Gallery 200(?) presented by "xyz" and "123". For the Songwriters Gallery to maintain its affordability and accessibility, keeping ticket prices and workshop fees reasonable, we will need this major sponsor in place for 2007. We would appreciate any and all help in acquiring the Title Sponsor.

If you have any questions or are interested in being a title sponsor, please contact: David Lee Brown, E-mail: david@davidleebrown.com / Ph.: 615-419-9169 Thank you!

The 1st Songwriters Winter Retreat .... happened!!

CLICK TO SEE PHOTOS

Oh yeah. A great writing/creative workshop (sold out) for all levels of writers willing to work hard and work thru songs. Some re-wrote and came back into workshop with masterpieces .. gotta love it. Thank you Michael and Don for putting in the overtime....

Don Henry and Michael Johnson were the mentors PLUS provided a sold out concert at the SONGBIRD CAFE in Custer.

It just may happen again next year .. we'll keep ya posted.

We will give you email's of past participants upon request --- they can tell more about the Songwriters Gallery.

"It was a pleasure and an honor to be around such attentive writers. I feel like I had more to learn than I had to give."

Michael Johnson

"The Songwriters Gallery winter retreat was fantastic.
To be in such secluded surroundings just soaking up life without a traffic jam in sight... what an escape! Just deer and snow and crystal clear air...and that early morning moon! Oh yeah, and songs, songs, songs! As hard as I worked while I was there, it never felt like work until I hit the bed at night and slept like a baby. A song-fed baby! Thanks to David Lee Brown and crew for inviting me to participate and hang out with folks who just can't help but write songs. Believe me, I understand! Lover of songs and songwriters,"

Don Henry
