RNIB hunts sponsor for Stevie Wonder concerts

The Royal National Institute for the Blind is seeking a ú100,000 sponsor to underwrite two concerts by Stevie Wonder in London next month.

The Royal National Institute for the Blind is seeking a ú100,000 sponsor to underwrite two concerts by Stevie Wonder in London next month.

The star offered to perform the concerts in 1993 but the dates were only confirmed two weeks ago, leaving the top 20 UK charity little time to find a sponsor.

It hopes to raise a minimum ú50,000 from the two Royal Albert Hall dates, even without a sponsor, but the charity is facing a ú1m deficit this year which has heightened the need to attract sponsors for the event.

The RNIB estimates that it will cost ú100,000 to put on the tour and is offering two tier sponsorships including banner-style packages and corporate hospitality opportunities.

Although there will be no on-stage promotion allowed, everything else from programmes to tickets and hoardings will be available to sponsors.

“The Stevie Wonder RNIB concerts are a unique chance for a company to benefit from the high profile exposure which will be generated from a partnership with RNIB for this event,” says the RNIB corporate fundraising manager Hilary Partridge.
