NerdCorps/Nerdapalooza has teamed up with national charity Child's Play to present Nerdapalooza 2008, the premiere nerd music event of the year.
Sponsored in part by Troma Films (Class of Nuke'Em High, The Toxic Avenger) and A Comic Shop, Nerdapalooza will host over thirty-three nerdcore hip-hop and rock bands during Fourth of July weekend in Orlando.
This is likely to be a significant media event, as interest in Nerdcore has never been higher, with the recent release of the film "Nerdcore Rising" at South By SouthWest, and the pending release of "Nerdcore for Life" in April.
Nerdapalooza's proceeds cover operating expenses, with 100% of the profit generated through merchandising and ticket sales going directly to Child's Play. Almost all of the performers pay for their own travel and accommodations.
As a charity event, we are currently seeking corporate sponsorship in various forms. Of primary concern would be tax-deductible donations made in the name of Nerdapalooza to our chosen charity organization, Child's Play.
However, there is also a need for hotel rooms, gear to be auctioned/raffled/given as prizes, etc., internet broadcasting, audio/video production/editing, and most importantly, the support of the geek community.
We are entirely open to featuring banners and logos from sponsors. Divx and Capcom's involvement in 2007 resulted in positive publicity in the film "Nerdcore For Life".
Pending the success of Nerdapalooza 2008, we hope to conduct a similar event during CES next year, as well. While we would certainly appreciate your company's patronage, I do want to thank you personally for your time.
