Why do we need Sponsors?
The MGFF, operating on behalf of the Middlesex Provincial Grand Lodge organise events each year to raise money for good causes. This has typically been through two main events, The Middlesex Grand Family Fete and the Winter Wonderland. Occasionally there has been a third event, Boxing.
There is also a Grand Lottery Draw, and tickets are sold throughout the province and the money raised also goes towards good causes.
In order to enable the MGFF to stage these events there are overheads that need to be paid for, in the case of the Grand Draw for example, the prizes that are offered. There are also other overheads that need to be covered, such as hiring in of toilets for the fete, advertising, and printing costs.
To pay for these overheads, the MGFF either has to take money out of the funds raised for good causes, or raise money through sponsorship.
