Music and Sponsors and Partners – oh, my!

Written by: Emily and Jimmy, Co-Chairs

Hello, Cleveland!

Update on all things Brite...
Music: Our mainstage lineup so far is The Very Knees and Living Stereo. We've got Ultimate Donny DJing.  We're working on some great main acts, too. If you know of anyone who would like to play inside a cube made of plastic sheeting, have them give us a shout.
Sponsorships: Thank you to the Alchemy Club and Case's Graduate Student Senate and Graduate Professional Council for their generous sponsorships!  Thank you also to Cleveland Metroparks and Cleveland Ship Repair for in-kind donations that will make the event possible.
Beer: We're talking to both Great Lakes and Indigo Imp.
Food: A work in progress, but our people LOVE food.  Love it.  So, this should work itself out easily with time.
Marketing: Our marketing network is kind of ridiculous.  I need to get a firmer number, but I think we're around 80,000 or so, between university networks, the Community Development Corporations, Cleveland Rowing Club, Beachland Ballroom, and possibly the Metroparks.
Partners: Thank you to Ohio City Near West Development, our fiscal agent; and Ohio Canal Corridor and the Cleveland Rowing Foundation, our hosts.

What you can do to help:
* Volunteer!  Planning, set up, day of, clean up... whatever.  We'd love to have you aboard.
* Send us contacts for sponsors, specifically major employers in the Cleve --- GE, the Clinic, Sherwin Williams, Key Bank, Eaton, etc.  This festival is all about Cleveland, and we'd like to keep our sponsors local, too.
* Like us on Facebook

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  Get out there and enjoy the beginning of winter.
