Sponsorship

The Roar® on the Shore 11th Annual Bike Week is the fastest-growing charitable motorcycle in the nation. This year, we are expecting more than 170,000 motorcycle enthusiasts from across the country on July 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16, 2017. Each July, Roar® makes an unprecedented impact by injecting more than $20 million into the local economy, with charitable donations totaling more than $800,000 in the last 10 years! And, 2017, will be no exception.

Proceeds from Roar® 2017 will benefit the Mercy Center for Women, a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy that provides safe and supportive transitional housing, education and counseling for homeless women in the region.

Your sponsorship supports a great charity and provides your organization with the opportunity to sponsor one of many special events or concerts. Your organization will receive maximum exposure activation as part of a $250,000 print, radio, television and social media marketing campaign that includes real-time views by ROAR’s® loyal 25,000 Facebook fans, nearly 2,000 Twitter followers, 1,200 Instagram followers, and 1,000 subscribers on the Official ROAR APP.

All sponsorship packages include your logo and link on the official Roar® website. If you want your clients or employees to enjoy a special experience, we can customize your sponsor package to meet your objectives. Contact Ellie Cullen at sponsorships@roarontheshore.com or 814/833-3200.
