Final Call for Sponsors

The February issues of the Beachcomber will contain ballots in the 17th year of the Best of Long Beach Contest. 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).

New this year we are limiting votes and winners to locally owned and operated businesses. Also this year contest sponsors receive a free listing in our services directory.

Your organization may 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 gift cards/certificates will be distributed when the winners are announced. Expiration dates, if applicable, should extend to July 1, 2019. Theater and event admission tickets will be distributed in pairs, so please double the quantity to 24.

Four of your gift cards/certificates are also 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.

Your materials must be received by January 25 to be included on the ballots, mailed to: Best of Long Beach Sponsor, Beachcomber, P.O. Box 15679, Long Beach, CA 90815-0679. Alternately non-postal items (products other than cards/certificates) may be dropped off at our offices: 5199 E. Pacific Coast Highway, Suite 608, Long Beach, CA 90804.

Please call (562) 597-8000 if you have any questions.
