Details: 12th Annual Business Leaders for Early Education Breakfast Hosted by Women United  Keynote speaker, Dipesh Navsaria. Educated workers are critical to the 21st century workforce. Children who read proficiently by the end of third grade are more likely to succeed academically and graduate from high school prepared for college and careers. One in four children in Pima County is not reaching this crucial benchmark. United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona is working to close this gap through Read On Tucson, an approach that implements proven strategies to increase the percentage of third graders reading at grade level in our community. Last year, more than 400 influential business and community leaders attended this important event and more than $20,000 was raised to support early childhood education.         Sponsorship Opportunities: $5,000 Gold Sponsor – two available One complimentary table for nine guests Half-page full color display in event program On-site marketing material distribution opportunity Stage recognition Prominent logo inclusion on the following: Event signage Invitation (within printing deadlines) United Way Business Breakfast website All marketing materials to promote the event $2,500 Silver Sponsor – four available One complimentary table for nine guests Quarter-page full color display in event program On-site marketing material distribution opportunity Stage recognition Prominent logo inclusion on the following: Event signage Invitation (within printing deadlines) United Way Business Breakfast website All marketing materials to promote the event $1,000 Copper Sponsor – four available One complimentary table for nine guests Event program listing Stage recognition Prominent logo inclusion on the following: Event signage Invitation (within printing deadlines) United Way Business Breakfast website All marketing materials to promote the event $270 Table Sponsor – unlimited available One complimentary table for nine guests Event program listing Table signage
