Harold Lloyd Birthday Bash planned for April 18th

From the DCR
Cohen Phillips & Nikki McKim

Big Harold Lloyd Birthday Bash
April 18th, 2009
Burchard, Nebraska (Harold's hometown)

They are also looking for some more sponsors who may like to help. Here is the press release from Cohen about the event:

Harold Lloyd was one of the greatest silent film comedians of the 1920's. Even though the name might not sound familiar, I'm sure you have seen the famous image of a person with glasses & boater hat hanging from clock hands.

This is from one one Lloyd's most famous movies, Safety Last! We are hoping to bring more name recognition to Harold with this event. Here is our video invite for this event-

We are organizing a birthday event at his childhood home, which is still standing, in Burchard, NE on April 18th.

We are expecting many attendants to this event, from a 4th grade class in Henderson, NE to hopefully Suzanne Lloyd, his granddaugh
ter! (if we can find a sponsor to fly her out.) We're also going to be touring his home, have a trivia contest, eating birthday cake and outdoor movies starting at dusk.

We are looking for sponsorship for this event from a company that would like to preserve the past of these medias for the next generation. We feel you would be a great partner to have in this adventure.

Donating some of air time or mentioning us in your events section would be great. Just to help us spread the word! "The Harold Lloyd Foundation of Burchard, NE" is participating in this event. They are a
501(c)(3) non-profit group. Donations can be tax write-offs.

If you sponsor us, you will be noted with on-air radio commercials and on all our print advertising. We'll put links on our website with your logo and a link back to your website so people can find out more about you and your company of items. Thank you for your time and looking forward to a positive response.
