10 Books a Home
PAMP is proud to partner with 10 Books a Home (10BH), in a BOOK DRIVE in conjunction with our Family Day this year. 10BH is an early education Child-Parent Home Tutoring Program located in East Palo Alto, CA.10BH’s mission is to support high poverty families in nurturing their preschooler’s intrinsic learning motivations so they enter kindergarten positioned to be and remain above grade level. 10 Books A Home gives 2 books per month directly to each child in the program. 10BH puts all book donations to work by giving AND READING them to children – the basics of school-readiness. Parents sit in on every lesson, so they too learn new ways to read with their children.
Please bring your donations of gently used or new books appropriate for preschool-aged children (3-5 years) to the Family Day event to support this great organization!

Sponsorship Opportunities & Information
Family Day is one of PAMP’s three annual large events and brings hundreds of PAMP members and their families together to appreciate the dedicated volunteers that help lead our organization. It is a fun outdoor picnic with games and activities for the entire family.
Family Day Activity Sponsors get to interact with PAMP members and their children by leading games and activities during the event. This is a great branding opportunity for businesses and entrepreneurs that want to represent their businesses to the PAMP community in a fun and meaningful way. Family Day is a non-commercial event and in this format sponsors are not “tabling” or “selling” their products or services, they are simply representing their businesses by their own enthusiastic engagement in the activities they are leading.
With the cancellation of the Children’s Moon Festival the Family Day becomes our only outdoor “Large Event” for the year. This is a Members-only event, so you know that the people attending will be your primary target audience. We will be focusing more on promoting this event to our members and providing better food, entertainment and activities, so we expect attendance to increase significantly. In the past we have had ~500 people attend, we expect that to increase to 600-800 this year.
Key Sponsorship: get included in all online and printed advertising and promotional material for the event, get a full booth at the event in the high-traffic primary area, and get included in large signage at the event. Get a 100-word “ad-itorial” in the event day program to draw attention to your organization. With the expected increase in attendance, this is a great deal at $500, the same price as 2014, and these high visibility spots will be limited.
Limited Sponsorship: get included in all online and printed advertising and promotional material for the event, get a full booth at the eent, and get your logo included in large signage and the event day program. The cost for limited sponsorship will be $300.

Sponsors - Frequently Asked Questions
Can I give away prizes?
Yes please! If you are leading an activity and want to raise the stakes by giving away prizes for a friendly competition, please feel free! Keep in mind that our core membership has children between the ages 0-5 years old; therefore, we ask that you bring prizes that are safe, age appropriate and environmentally-friendly (i.e. minimal packaging).
Will I have a tent, table or space to display a banner or distribute materials?
Yes. We will provide a tent, a kids activity table, a 6-foot table and two chairs, which you are welcome to use to hang banners and distribute materials.
Can I sell my services or products at the event?
No, this is a non-commercial event and it is not appropriate to do transactions – your first priority is to lead the activities. However you can feel free to bring a clipboard, pens and papers to collect email addresses if members want to join your mailing-list.
Are Activity Sponsors providing childcare?
No, absolutely not! All of the games and activities require parent-participation and supervision. Under no circumstances should a parent leave their child unattended. This is generally understood by most members, but Activity Sponsors should remind parents whenever a situation arises to stay with their children. If a child is separated from his or her parent immediately notify a PAMP board member at the board table.
How will I know if my sponsorship request has been approved?
Shortly after emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, you will hear from the Development Manager to confirm your spot and activity.
