It’s Awesome you want to throw an event and have your community support you!!
There are some ways you can go about getting this done.
Here are few tips that could help you along the way:
1. For starters, if you have not done so already; Find out who is in charge and seek to set up a meeting in which you may speak with them.( I would also research those businesses you wish to acquire hosting and see the extent to which they are involved in the community. Knowing how the businesses values the community is a key indicator in assessing the help you could potentially receive from them.
2. Call and speak to someone during low peak hours, you might get the person in charge on the line or someone that could put you in direct contact with them.
3. Going to the business and speaking to someone in a leadership position is another effective way to get answers; there is nothing like meeting someone face to face and stating your purpose.( You might end up with the results you are looking for).
4. Keep your personal network in mind!!( Ask yourself is there anyone you might know that might have a relationship with the business you want to host you? Also, how might they help in advocating for you.
