Ice Skating in Tollefson Plaza?

The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber, Downtown Merchants Group and Tacoma Art Museum have partnered to explore the possibility of a holiday ice rink in Tollefson Plaza for 2010.

The group’s vision is for a festive covered ice rink to fill the lower portion of Tollefson Plaza, the rink contractor will rent skates. Food and hot cocoa vendors will provide treats in the upper plaza and Two-Five-Trees will be welcomed back to sell Christmas trees.

Like most community events funding is the key to success. Achieving this vision will not be possible with out the financial support of the community. The group is soliciting major sponsors during the January and February feasibility period.

Sponsors will be asked to provide cash contributions and/or in-kind support. Cash sponsors will receive advertizing recognition ranging from corporate name(s) on event marketing material, inclusion in print and radio advertising and banners at the rink. In-kind sponsors will receive recognition and our most pressing need is print, television and radio advertising. The final decision for the Rink will depend on the response during this feasibility period now through February.

Help spread the word about this fantastic marketing opportunity. If you have a businesses or individual sponsor in mind the planning partners would love to hear about them. Contact Cameron Fellows at 253-272-4258 x3012 or cfellows@tacomaartmuseum.org for more information. Or visit the Downtown Merchant Group website.
