Letter to our Sponsors


Dear Business Owner/Representative,

Last year the Nobles and Ladies of Tripoli Shrine began what we hope to be a tradition for Milwaukee during the week of Thanksgiving called the "Feztival of Trees". It is our mission to become a strong positive influence in our community and we invite you to become a part of this effort.

The “2018 Feztival of Trees” will be Nov. 17th – 24th (excluding Thanksgiving Day). The theme this year is “Gingerbread Forest”. There will be Gingerbread decorations throughout the Shrine Center along with food and beverages for purchase, photos with Santa, a forest of decorated Christmas trees to be raffled and much more.

The purpose of this event is to raise money for the Tripoli Shrine Center to support its efforts in helping kids. We want to raise awareness of who Shriners are and what we do. It is also our intention to bring our community together for a fun filled family-oriented holiday experience. We want to showcase our beautiful historical building and the neighborhood that we reside in. Tripoli Shrine has been a part of the Concordia neighborhood for over ninety years and it is truly one of Milwaukee’s hidden treasures.

Organizations are again being asked to donate a fully decorated pre-lit Christmas tree. Last year we had 55 sponsored trees displayed in our ball room for viewing. Patrons purchased raffle tickets and placed their tickets in the ticket vessel next to the trees of their choice and winners were selected on the last day of the Feztival. Tree winners then brought home their beautiful trees with all their splendor and gifts on Sunday. We are looking to surpass 55 trees this year and expand the displayed trees throughout the Shrine Center. Decorations may be any family-oriented theme and/or can promote your organization/business. (In response to several requests from attendees last year, we will be accepting a limited number of 4 ft. trees that are preferred by those who may not have room for a full-size tree.) Whether you use the creation and decorating of your tree as a team building exercise, as many of last year’s sponsors did, or as a worthwhile holiday project for you and your employees; your support of our “Feztival of Trees” will help us in achieving our goals.

Should a tree creation not be a possibility for you this year, in order to improve and increase participation in our Feztival, we are also providing an opportunity for businesses and organizations to be a Corporate Sponsor in any of the following areas:

Beer and Wine Bar Sponsor
Food Court Sponsor
Advertising Sponsor
Event Booklet Sponsor
Lottery Tree Sponsor
Pictures with Santa Sponsor
Security Sponsor

Corporate Sponsors of these areas will be recognized with signage as the Corporate Sponsor of that category at the Feztival as well as in the Event Booklet which will be distributed to every Feztival attendee.

Please consider helping the mission of the Tripoli Shriners and become a “Feztival of Trees” Tree Sponsor or a Corporate Sponsor and help generate a positive impact in our community. Your support will help us make the “Feztival of Trees” a new Milwaukee Holiday Tradition. Please take a moment to visit our website www.tripolishrinefeztival.com to see what it’s all about!

A Sponsor Application and the Rules and Guidelines is included with this letter for your convenience. All applications are due to a Committee member or the Tripoli Shrine Office by October 15th, 2018.

Should you have any questions or are interested in becoming a Corporate or Tree Sponsor, please feel free to contact:

Bob Capen (Feztival Chairman)

414-235-1279 or bobcapen@sbcglobal.net

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

The “Feztival of Trees” Committee
