Concho Christmas Celebration is fortunate to have the support of the Concho Valley community. Over 75 area businesses and community groups underwrite large greeting cards that are lit and placed along the Tour of Lights. By doing this, they help to offset the maintenance expenses that total over $175,000 each year. Each card requires an initial donation of $1,300 and the underwriter designs and provides customized artwork, based on the underwriter's wishes. After the first year, an annual sponsorship fee of $1,000 is required of the underwriter.
As the Tour of Lights is viewed by a great number of individuals from San Angelo, as well as guests from other places, underwriting a greeting card can be a positive way to market a business. A total count of cars shows that over 15,000 vehicles drove through the lights each of the years 2014, 2015 and 2016 and 2017, and we estimate that over 70,000 individuals witness the magical light display each year.
If you would like to help support Concho Christmas Celebration and participate as an underwriting sponsor of a greeting card, please call Donna Donaldson at 325-944-4444, and we can be on our way to spreading your message of Christmas Cheer!
