Fundraiser for Power & Light Pole Banners Around Town
May 13, 2021 - July 31, 2021$1 – $125
Many have said, It’s about time! I can’t wait! and How can I help? when they heard about the new power pole banners coming to Florence’s Highway 101 corridor.
Here’s how you can be a part of one of the most fun and festive civic pride programs—and economically impactful projects—in Florence’s recent history!
With your support, the Florence Area Chamber of Commerce will install visitor-focused, event-based, and seasonal banners to festoon the new Revision Florence poles (between the bridge and Highway 126) and on the power poles from Highway 126 north to Fred Meyer. There will also be on some poles along Hwy 126 and at the entrance to Three Rivers Casino Resort.
This is your chance to get behind the Chamber to launch this program to catch drivers’ attention at the casino and through our Highway 101 corridor, get them to slow down a little, and help direct visitors to stop, shop, eat, play, and stay here in Oregon’s Coastal Playground!
It will truly become an investment in the community’s economy. Four million cars pass through Florence on Highway 101 every year. We want to capture some of those visitor dollars for our economy. When we do, everyone benefits.
You can sponsor any of six different banner designs that will be staggered along the busy highways. Your contribution will help unite uptown Florence with Historic Old Town Florence and capture visitors’ imagination for all the fun things to do in and around Florence!
You can read the full press release with all the juicy details here. And, if you are an artist or graphic designer, learn how to submit your design ideas for a chance to win up to $1000!
Each pole will cost approximately $125 for the hardware, banner, and installation. But we can’t do it alone. Sponsorships are available by sponsoring one pole, several poles, or through a financial investment of any amount.
