BONNECHERE AUTHORS FESTIVAL
|Patron Sponsorship Package||24.21KB|
2019 marks the Bonnechere Authors Festival (BAF) 18th season! We will be staying in our new location at the Eagle's Nest (178 Jane Street, above the Eganville Arena), which worked so well last year. Due to your postive feedback the festival will remain on Monday nights: July 8, 15, 22 and 28. We ambitiously sougth after authors and have confirmed four phenomental talents. We will tease out the release of each name on facebook in the coming weeks.
Our new Authors Circle Memberships are a great way for your to pre-plan your festival experience and help support the festival by making a donation in advance. There are a variety of membership levels to choose from, good for an individual, a couple or friends. They include seasons passes, dinners with the author, and signed books.
The BAF organizers are making some adjustments to help strengthen the Festival. For the first time, we will provide authors with honourariums to help with their travel costs. Authors in Canada make an average of $9,380 a year. To ask an Author to take time away from their family, job and to also pay their own way is more then we're willing to ask when we are raising money from their work. That means our costs are going to be a lttle higher, however, to offset this, and hopefully raise even more for the library, we are raising our prices slightly and offering new sponsorship packages for local businesses and membership packages for you, our biggest fans!
The ticket price is being increased for the first time in the 17 years this festival has take place! Single tickets will be $20, at the door. We will have a measure to help those book lovers who cannot afford the increase.
In past years BAF has been a partnership with the Training and Learning Centre. They have chosen to focus their fundraising efforts in a different direction, and we wish them the very best! This means all of the money raised will go to the Bonnechere Union Public Library. We are a small group of organizers, with a larger group of loyal volunteers and bakers. Thank you for considering supporting this Festival that has put the Eganville area on the cultural and literary map in Canada. We would not have such a successful Festival without you, our amazing audience.
