We invite you to consider sponsoring the Chestertown Lions Club Cycling Events held in April and June 2020.
The Draw for Sight Ride in April typically attracts over 200 riders and has become an annual tune-up ride for area cyclists from throughout the region. Riders follow a 36 to 60 mile course through historic Chestertown and the beautiful towns and farmlands of upper Kent County. The popular Bay to Bay Ride is in its 35th year, held in June, and typically draws over 500 cyclists, who can follow any of four routes between 26 and 102 miles in length, taking in the heartland of the Upper Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware. For more information, see the "events" tab at www.chestertownlions.org.
All of the funds generated from these two rides support Lions Club programs particularly in Kent County, including the Leader Dog program for the blind, preschool eye screening, the purchase of eyeglasses for individuals who cannot afford them, and other activities such as scholarships for Kent and Queen Anne's County students. Most of the funds will directly benefit Chestertown and Kent/Queen Anne's County community groups.
Our sponsors will receive recognition for both 2020 rides. The enclosed sponsorship form explains the different levels of support and recognition. Every sponsor will be recognized for making an important contribution to our town, to Kent and Queen Anne's counties, to hundreds of cyclists participating in the rides, and to the local and national programs supported by Lions Club International.
If you or your organization are interested in sponsoring the Chestertown Lions Club cycling events in 2020, we be glad to answer any questions you may have about these rides or the Lions Club in general. Contact Richard Coffman at 410-810-4154, or by email to richard [dot] coffman5 [at] gmail [dot] com.
