SPONSORS

 

Dear Sir or Madam,
The Saskatchewan Country Music Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion, development, and enhancement of all aspects of Saskatchewan country music. Boasting a list of amazing talent among our members, the SCMA has been helping artists in Saskatchewan for over 30 years, many of whom have succeeded at the local, national, and international levels.   The SCMA endeavors to develop and promote Saskatchewan country artists by creating and promoting, showcases, events, venues, awards and artist development workshops. The Awards will be Virtually Broadcast on TV at Access and Shaw, and on the internet. The best artists
and industry professionals will be honoured at the SCMA Awards shows. The 32nd Annual SCMA awards will be held Virtually on April 17, 2021.   We are actively looking for corporate sponsors. We invite you and your organization to participate. We are reaching out to you because we believe your company has an interest in country music and/or has something to offer to the singers, songwriters and musicians who belong to our organization. We want to talk to you!  We would be delighted to talk to you about what the SCMA can offer your organization. We have benefits to offer for the months leading up to the Awards show in April. If you are interested, even in the long term as a country music champion and a strategic partner of the SCMA.   I have attached a sponsorship prospectus to this email. I can be contacted by return email at lgilbertson1@outlook.com or at (306) 457-7654.
Thank you,
Leon Gilbertson
SCMA Vice-President
Chair of the 2021 SCMA Awards Committee
