Thank you for your interest in being a 2019 Host Committee Member.
The purpose of the 2019 Yacht Party Fundraiser is to give attendees an opportunity to have a unique experience aboard one of Baltimore’s finest cruising vessels and raise funds for local startups in Baltimore.
The proceeds from ticket and sponsorship sales will be used to cover costs and then create a pool of funds that will be awarded at the event on May 4th 2019. Our goal is to give between $2500 to $5000 to a local startup that attendees choose during the event.
This approach is taken because many startups do not qualify for traditional funding from banks. This fundraiser bypasses those challenges and brings the funding directly to those who need it to grow their companies and have a positive impact on the community.
Host Committee Members must be approved by WHC. Once approved, you will be listed on our marketing materials. Host Committee members are compensated for tickets and sponsorships sold and can earn free admission to the Yacht Party. Check out the details below.
Once approved, Host Committee Members should utilize their text contacts, emails lists, social media stories and social media posts daily to drive traffic to this link: https://whcusa.com/2019-tickets/
On this page, there is form that attendees complete with a field that says “Name of referring Host Committee Member.” Based on the name they submit, that will determine which approved Host Committee member receives credit for the sale and compensation.
Sponsorship sales should be directed to this link: https://whcusa.com/2019-sponsorships/
When sponsorships are purchased, they will be asked to list their referring Host Committee member. Based on the name they submit, that will determine which approved Host Committee member receives credit for the sale and compensation.
