Sponsorship Opportunities

Family Day is one of PAMP’s three annual large events and brings hundreds of PAMP members and their families together to appreciate the dedicated volunteers that help lead our organization. It is a fun outdoor picnic with games and activities for the entire family.

Family Day Activity Sponsors get to interact with PAMP members and their children by leading games and activities during the event. This is a great branding opportunity for businesses and entrepreneurs that want to represent their businesses to the PAMP community in a fun and meaningful way. Family Day is a non-commercial event and in this format sponsors are not “tabling” or “selling” their products or services, they are simply representing their businesses by their own enthusiastic engagement in the activities they are leading.

With the cancellation of the Children’s Moon Festival the Family Day becomes our only outdoor “Large Event” for the year. This is a Members-only event, so you know that the people attending will be your primary target audience. We will be focusing more on promoting this event to our members and providing better food, entertainment and activities, so we expect attendance to increase significantly. In the past we have had 350-450 families attend, we expect that to increase to 500-600 this year.


Key Sponsorship: get included in all online and printed advertising and promotional material for the event, get a full booth at the event in the high-traffic primary area, and get included in large signage and all handouts at the event. With the expected increase in attendance, this is a great deal at $500, the same price as 2014, and these high visibility spots will be limited.


Limited Sponsorship: get included in all online and printed advertising and promotional material for the event, and get the opportunity to participate in the event hosting an activity area (similar to what we offered at the Children’s Moon Festival in 2014). The cost for limited sponsorship will be $300.



Location: Mitchell Park is located at 600 East Meadow Drive in Palo Alto. The cross streets are East Meadow Drive and Middlefield Road. The Family Day celebration will take place at the Redwood and Pine Grove Group Areas.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I give away prizes?
Yes please! If you are leading an activity and want to raise the stakes by giving away prizes for a friendly competition, please feel free! Keep in mind that our core membership has children between the ages 0-5 years old; therefore, we ask that you bring prizes that are safe, age appropriate and environmentally-friendly (i.e. minimal packaging).

Will I have a tent, table or space to display a banner or distribute materials?
Yes. We will provide a tent, 6-foot table and two chairs, which you are welcome to use to hang banners and distribute materials. We will also help distribute your materials in the PAMP bags that we will be giving away at the board table.

Can I sell my services or products at the event?
No, this is a non-commercial event and it is not appropriate to do transactions – your first priority is to lead the activities. However you can feel free to bring a clipboard, pens and papers to collect email addresses if members want to join your mailing-list.

Are Activity Sponsors providing childcare?
No, absolutely not! All of the games and activities require parent-participation and supervision. Under no circumstances should a parent leave their child unattended. This is generally understood by most members, but Activity Sponsors should remind parents whenever a situation arises to stay with their children. If a child is separated from his or her parent immediately notify a PAMP board member at the board table.

How will I know if my sponsorship request has been approved?
Shortly after emailing, you will hear from the Development Manager to confirm your spot and activity.  Please send a check for the full amount to: Parents’ Club of Palo Alto & Menlo Park at 171 Main Street, #171, Los Altos, CA 94022. Sponsor spots are limited and your spot is not secure until payment has been received.
