KENT, OHIO (August 1, 2021) — The Kent Parks & Recreation Department has launched a broad-based corporate sponsorship program that will offer a wide range of branding and partnership opportunities to area businesses.

The Kent Recreation Corporate Sponsorship Program will target businesses and organizations seeking high-visibility brand exposure and interaction with residents through the City’s various recreation venues, department-wide programming and popular community events.

Angela Manley, Parks and Recreation Director, said the City’s many recreation assets can be of particular value to potential corporate partners, and now is the right time to launch a sponsorship program. “Recreation departments have been greatly affected by the pandemic in the past year, and are seeking avenues to leverage their venues, programs and events to drive additional revenue,” she pointed out. “Our objective is to use funds from the sponsorship program to upgrade equipment, improve facilities and keep programming costs low for all recreation participants.”

Kent’s many recreation facilities present a huge opportunity for businesses interested in being a part of the city’s vibrant sports, recreation and event scene, according to Steve Corcoran, CEO of Look Strategies, a Cleveland marketing communications and sales management firm retained by the Kent Parks & Recreation Department to coordinate the sponsorship program.

“While we’re very excited to be able to help foster these valuable business partnerships, our goal, first and foremost, is to maintain the beauty and integrity of the many recreation assets throughout the city,” Corcoran said.

The program offers several partnership opportunities, ranging from naming rights at a number of parks, ballparks, skate park and recreation venues, to premier sponsorships of the area’s top festivals and events.

Area businesses and organizations that are interested in additional information on corporate sponsorships can visit, email, or call Look Strategies at (440) 655-6073.
