Call for Contest Sponsors

By: 
Jay Beeler

We are pleased to announce the 18th year of the Beachcomber’s Best of Long Beach Contest, which assists local businesses in acquiring new customers. Again this year the contest will be in two phases, with service-related business ballots distributed in February (announced in April) and product-oriented business ballots distributed in July (recognized in September).

We are asking your organization to participate as a sponsor by providing us with 12 gift cards/certificates valued at a minimum of $25 each. Your business name will appear above both the February and July ballots to remind voters of your sponsorship and your cards/certificates will be distributed when the winners are announced. Expiration dates, if applicable, should extend to July 1, 2020. Theater and event admission tickets will be distributed in pairs, so please double quantities.

Four of your 12 gift cards/certificates will be used as part of our bi-weekly “Long Beach Treasures” contest with your logo on the front page of each Beachcomber issue if you also run a minimum of six 1/8 page ads annually in the newspaper.

If your business is not conducive to gift cards we can purchase a dozen on your behalf upon receipt of your $300 check or credit card information and then affix your business card to them when distributed. Gift cards/certificates must be all inclusive and not have any “strings attached,” requiring an additional purchase or commitment on the part of the recipient.

When we distribute your gift cards/certificates, you may optionally provide us with a business card, brochure, menu, flier or special discount offer that must fit into our 6” x 9” envelopes.

Please reply to this email to participate in 2019. Your materials must be received by January 26 to be included on the ballots, mailed to: Best of Long Beach Sponsor, Beachcomber, P.O. Box 15679, Long Beach, CA 90815-0679. Or you may email gift certificates to contests@beachcomber.news.

Please call my direct line if you have any questions (562) 985-0780 or would like your materials picked up.
