Becoming a Sponsor
Dear Friends & Sponsors,
For those of you that I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet, I would like to first introduce myself to you. My name is Davia McNamara and I am honored to be returning as your sponsor liaison. Some of you may remember me from when I served in this position from 2012-2016 and some of you I have not had the pleasure of meeting yet. My goal for this year is to continue to nurture & strengthen relationships with you, our sponsors. Most importantly it is my honor and privilege to thank each of you for your continued support of the Fiesta Stock Horse Show & Rodeo. Whither it is your first, tenth, or 99th year as an advocate and sponsor we are equally grateful for each of you.
I hope to continue to strengthen our relationship with each of you as our sponsors, advocates and supporters. Every year it is our goal to continue to improve the quality of the rodeo to create a show stopping, powerful & excitement filled event for our competitors and attendees alike. Over the years, we have been lucky to welcome some great names and talent to Earl Warren Showgrounds for the Fiesta Stock Horse Show & Rodeo while producing the best event we possibly can year after year. All of which would not be possible without the continued support of our competitors, community and sponsors.
Without sponsors like yourself, our organization, event and history wouldn’t have survived through the generations, let alone grow to become what we know the rodeo as today. It is because of you that we are able to keep the tradition of “competencia de vaqueros” and the history of the Santa Barbara Vaquero alive. Established in 1924, the Fiesta Stock Horse Show & Rodeo continues to be a showcase event during the ever-popular Old Spanish Days celebration in Santa Barbara.
In a society where texting, social media and life is so instantaneous, Fiesta is a place where time stands still, traditions are honored and hard work certainly pays off. As a sponsor, you are the one whom makes the history of the rodeo possible and in doing so contribute to many wonderful experience and memories for competitors and attendees alike. For some, it might be winning your first buckle or getting to rope for the first time with your grandfather. For others, you might be sitting in the same seats your family has for over 50 years. For me, its knowing that the organization I volunteer for is part of family traditions that span generations through attendance and competition.
Each year the rodeo brings a smile to my face as I see kids, young and old, working, learning and competing alongside each other. For some this year might be their first, for others its their 90th year of participating in the rodeo! The Fiesta Stock Horse Show & Rodeo is unique in that it is truly a family event produced completely by volunteers that brings the community together year after year. It brings cowboys and cowgirls, young and old, novice or professional together for a week of excitement, competition and glee.
I hope to be able to share with you the excitement that is felt each night as the rodeo begins. The energy, passion and unity witnessed during that week is unforgettable and will give you goose bumps as you see a whole community come together to support and witness an event that has taken place each year since 1924. I invite each of you to experience this with me this year and hope to see you in the stands.
For 2023, I would like to be able to offer each of you the customized attention and recognition that you deserve. By helping our organization to produce the rodeo, I want to make sure each of you is acknowledged with dignity and respect. I look forward to helping to produce the best Fiesta Stock Horse Show & Rodeo to date in honor our tradition and history. We hope that you will work with us to ensure that this year is no exception to the high caliber of rodeo we work to produce each year and look forward to having you as a part of our sponsor family. Enclosed in this packet you will find a “Sponsor Acceptance” form and return envelope in which to send your reply and donation. Thank you in advance for your much needed support of this year’s Fiesta Rodeo.
