Why Sponsor?

Sponsorship of Raniyaan di Raunaq is a unique opportunity for businesses like yours to effectively market your brand to the South Asian community in the D.C. metropolitan area. For entrepreneurs interested in aligning with an organization dedicated to empowering and celebrating women in a traditionally male-dominated space, the possibilities of this partnership are endless.

Sponsorship provides you with the chance to:

  • Elevate your brand in a rapidly-growing South Asian market

  • Extend your reach to a diverse consumer population

  • Leverage DCBC’s social network for expansive promotion of your product

  • Lay the foundation for future involvement and investment

  • Cultivate and amplify community goodwill and brand visibility

Raunaq will be held on Saturday, August 10, 2019 in Alexandria, Virginia, with participating teams from across the country and an audience of 1,000 people. The proceeds from our event after net operating costs will be donated to Asha for Women, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing support to South Asian women living in abusive marriages and homes by empowering them to become self-reliant and live abuse-free.

The success of this competition is largely dependent upon the financial and product support of corporations and private sponsors. Costs are anticipated to be $35,000, including renting the performance venue, transportation for over 150 dancers to and from the show, prize money, and food and drink for all of the participants. Your support will allow us to make a powerful impact on competition participants.
