Sponsor Still Needed: Twilight Dance Series

The Twilight Dance Series at the Santa Monica Pier is still looking for a major sponsor. Work for a company that could help out? Give them a call and make things happen! Expect the lineup to be released at the beginning of June as always!

From the Santa Monica Mirror:

How the 27th edition of the TDS will shape up remains to be seen. Steve Gibson, the interim executive director of the Pier Restoration Committee (PRC), assures the series will return in 2011 with a full slate of musicians despite the lack of an official lineup or major sponsor announced, and with only eight weeks remaining before the event’s planned July 7 launch date.

“We are in negotiation with about three major (sponsors). They are all in crucial stages of negotiations,” Gibson said. He said if just one of the three sponsors commits, there will be enough funding in place for the series to occur this year. “There will be at least seven nights, but our goal is to do 10 nights. But it’s all sponsor based.”

Gibson pointed out that a few sponsors have already committed to this year’s TDS, including Cirque du Soleil, Bloomingdale’s, and Australian Consulate-General of Los Angeles. Both Cirque du Soleil and the Australian Consulate-General plan to program specific nights.
While exact details may not be available until later this month, Gibson indicated there are plans to have a tango night, a Hawaiian-themed night, and a surfing guitar night. TDS is planned to begin on July 7 and, should sufficient funding be secured this month, it will run through Sept. 8.
