Underwriting Opportunities


The Miami Recognition Dinner offers several exclusive opportunities to associate your business or organization with a particular aspect of the event. Companies that take advantage of one of these underwriting opportunities receive special recognition.

Stage $20,000 - Sold

Underwritten by Brinker International

Production of the awards ceremony, including lighting and sound, is one of the most important and highly visible aspects of the event. In addition to all the benefits of Platinum sponsorship and recognition as the official Sponsor of the stage, your company can supply a 15- to 20-second video clip to be shown at the event, expressing your pride in underwriting the cost of the production.

Cocktail Reception $15,000

Our guests begin the evening with a cocktail reception where they can enjoy a hosted premium bar and hors d’oeuvres with our honorees, presenters and local dignitaries. (In 2006, Bill Clinton made a surprise appearance at the reception.) For your support in making this portion of the event memorable, you will be recognized on signage at the reception. You will receive four tickets to the event and recognition on all event marketing materials (“Cocktail Reception presented by YOUR COMPANY NAME”).

Communications $10,000 - Sold

Our Communications package offers your company recognition before and during the event. Prior to the event, you will be acknowledged on our “Save the Date” postcard and approximately ten email blasts to our target audience.

You will also receive four tickets to the event.

Silent Auction $10,000

Our silent auction is a major component of our evening. Guests shop over 500 items during our cocktail reception.

Volunteers $2,500 - Sold

Underwritten by Miami Marlins and Rennert Vogel Mandler & Rodriguez, P.A.

The Miami Recognition Dinner would not be possible without the time and effort of a large team of dedicated volunteers, and expressing appreciation for their hard work is a vital part of the event. For underwriting the cost of feeding our volunteers on the night of the Dinner and producing an appreciation reception a few weeks following the event, your company will receive signage in the volunteer hospitality room and at the appreciation reception. Your logo will also be included on the invitation to the appreciation reception. Additionally, you will receive two tickets to the event.
