We'd love to partner with you! 

Interested in sponsoring an IGH Parks & Rec event? Sponsoring an event or program hosted by Inver Grove Heights Parks & Recreation allows your business to connect with the City’s residents in a unique and beneficial way. Sponsorship levels also provide ways to have your business recognized on our event's promotional materials. 


Recreation Superintendent, Julie Dorshak, looks forward to hearing from you to learn more and discuss how we can build a stronger community — together!

Holidays in the Heights Sponsorship Opportunities

Please help continue the tradition with us as we celebrate the holiday season with eight planned events! In the past, over 500 people have attended our holiday events each year. 

Your contribution is a key to the success of this community program. We would greatly appreciate any financial donation your business can provide. All contributions are posted here as well as in the Veteran Memorial Community Center.


Outdoor Tree Lighting (Dec.4): To start the holiday off, we will light the holiday tree and around the VMCC while enjoying music and refreshments! 

NEW! Swim with Santa (Dec.4): New this year! Santa will visit The Grove Aquatic Center and swim with our guests. Bring your camera to snap a photo with Santa! 

NEW! Homemade Holiday Gifts from the Heart (Dec.5): Another new option for families this year will include a fun morning for kids to make a gift for someone special in their lives. 

A North Pole Morning with Santa (Dec. 7): Santa is bringing the North Pole to the VMCC! Visit Santa and enjoy other activities with friends and family. Planning is still under development for this popular program. Staff are monitoring COVID-19 restrictions and will plan accordingly for a light breakfast, games and activities.
