A Call For Sponsors

We are now planning the 15th Annual Iron Bridge Dinner, brought to you by the Greater Shelburne Falls Area Business Association (GSFABA). This year the dinner will be held on Sunday, August 16th with seating at 5:30, dinner at 6:00. Local restaurants and food providers will be preparing this elegant, one-of-a-kind dinner for 400 people on the Iron Bridge at sunset. The Iron Bridge spans the two towns of Buckland and Shelburne, and this event celebrates all the connections between the two communities. It is an incredibly beautiful and well-known event with the $40.00 tickets selling out at within hours of becoming available.

The event also serves as a fundraiser for the GSFABA and the Mohawk Athletic Association. Athletes from the Mohawk Athletic Association graciously serve the meal while local musicians serenade the diners. A hat is traditionally passed at the end of the evening which, coupled with their portion of ticket revenues, should provide the athletes with over $2,000.00 for their programs.

This year the GSFABA invites your business to be a sponsor of this event at one of these levels:

  • Bird of Paradise Sponsor for $1,200.00
  • White Orchid Sponsor for $1,000.00
  • Rose Sponsor for $750.00
  • Blue Iris Sponsor for $500.00
  • Sunflower Sponsors for $250.00
  • Daisy Sponsor for $100.00

Depending on the level of sponsorship there are different benefits. Here are some of the benefits included for all sponsorships.

  • One to ten free tickets depending upon the generosity of your gift
  • Your Business Name on a Bridge Dinner banner placed by the Iron Bridge prior to August 16th
  • Your Business Name on formal invitations and menus received by each of the 400+ guest
  • Your Business Name in all news releases sent to area media
  • Your Business Name in the GSFABA Business Bulletins sent to over 250 GSFABA members as well as additional copies distributed widely
  • Your Business name in a special event landing page on

We expect our usual sold out attendance and strong media coverage, as this is a unique and highly photogenic event--a gala sunset street feast over the Deerfield River.

We look forward to working with you this year, and in years to come, to make the Bridge Dinner a memorable community celebration that supports the work of the GSFABA, while also raising funds for our school athletic programs.
