Family Pass Sponsorship

A Win-Win-Win Proposition


Advance Family Pass Sponsorship / Purchase / Donation

Purchase a Family Pass before Canada Day and help sponsor Canada Day 2018. Each advanced sale of a Canada Day Family Pass will:

  • help Rotary offer this wonderful family celebration in Guelph’s Riverside Park for the 26th year, from 11:00am until the fireworks at 10:00pm
  • help support Food4Kids Guelph, a new Rotary-supported program that aims to close the weekend gap in providing food to children whose families are struggling to make ends meet

Passes purchased in advance of the celebration can also:

  • provide a token of appreciation from you to valued customers, employees, colleagues, friends, family, members of your club, church congregation or sports teams with a fun day for a good cause
  • help the Rotary Club of Guelph in providing new Canadian families, or families who may not normally have the economic choice of attending a Canada Day Celebration to do so

How to Participate

Businesses – an opportunity for both community support and business promotion! Recognition of your generosity is printed on the passes and shown on our website.
Individuals – a charitable tax receipt will be issued for donations of $20 or more.

A minimum $20 donation is required for each Family Pass advanced purchase. The proceeds from advanced sales are distributed in the following manner:

  • $10 Donation to Rotary Club of Guelph community funded projects
    $10 Donation to Food4Kids program

Companies, organizations and individuals are welcome to purchase multiple family passes!

How to Use Your Family Pass

Family Pass holders are requested to present their pass at one of the entry gates at Riverside Park on Canada Day to receive donation request free entry. Non-advance pass holders entering the park will be asked for a donation at the gate.

A family is defined loosely as two (2) adults and attendant school age children or any combination of up to five (5) members. Typically 1-3 adults and/or 1-4 children. Overall this definition is open to interpretation and decision by gate volunteers.
