Each year in September Recovery Allies of West Michigan hosts Recovery Palooza in order to celebrate recovery in our community during National Recovery Month.

Recovery Palooza is a free event for community members of all ages to celebrate recovery, enjoy family fun, learn about recovery resources, and connect with community agencies who offer substance use services. In order to provide this event free of charge we need your help in the form of a sponsor.

Sponsors get benefits based on the type and level of sponsorship. These benefits will be posted for Recovery Palooza 2019 in the Spring of 2019, along with how to become a sponsor. Below are the general definitions for each type of sponsor.

Types of Sponsorship:

Corporate Sponsor: Businesses or large healthcare organizations (i.e. hospitals) whose main purpose is not substance use or recovery related. Businesses that have a main/sole purpose of providing alcohol (i.e. brewery’s) who support recovery may participate in the event; however, due to the nature of the event wording will clearly demonstrate that these businesses are participating in support of recovery.

Community Organization Sponsor: Agencies or organizations providing substance use disorder (SUD) services including prevention, training, support (support group organizations like Alano Clubs are a part of this category) and treatment. Organizations providing services that are identified as imperative in order to address SUD and/or maintain recovery (i.e. small health clinics, housing agencies, family support services, employment) but may not provide SUD specific services also qualify in this category.

Educational/Religious Institution Sponsor: Institutions/schools or school districts and religious institutions. These are organizations that do not directly provide services/support for those with substance use disorders or in recovery, but are a part of the larger community in providing education and support.

Media Sponsor: Any media outlet in the community. For contribution of funds, media sponsors fit in the corporate sponsor category. However, media outlets may choose to support the event by providing the community with information prior to, during, and/or afterwards.

Individual Sponsor: Individuals/families that would like to show their support for the event through donations can do so separate from an organization or entity. There are also be opportunities to volunteer at the event.
