Director's Message

#WishUponAStar

Dear Potential Sponsor,

Raas All-Stars (RAS) began in 2009 as a humble vision to support philanthropic causes vital to the South Asian community while celebrating the Raas-Garba tradition, a folk dance originating from Gujarat, India. For the past fifteen years, RAS has grown into one of the largest multicultural intercollegiate dance communities in the country through its expansive network of 15,000+ dancers, team managers, competition board members, and alumni across the country. As part of its efforts to pursue a greater philanthropic mission, RAS prides itself in partnering with numerous organizations dedicated to preserving South Asian traditions for the past fourteen years.

 

As our collegiate dance circuit continues to grow, we want to ensure that RAS fosters an environment that promotes diversity, safety, and inclusion. In order to uphold this culture, RAS Town Halls provide resources that will bring the circuit together. 

 

Raas All-Stars (RAS) will host its sixteenth anniversary national showcase, Raas All-Stars XVI, in Chicago, IL on March 30th, 2024 and is searching for sponsors to help carry out the event. Last year, RAS successfully engaged over 5,000+ students, professionals, community members, and partnering nonprofit organizations. We plan to uphold that tradition by delivering another outstanding season.

 

We are confident that our flexible sponsorship levels will provide your organization the unique opportunity to gain nationwide exposure across the multicultural, intercollegiate community. Our mission can only be accomplished with the involvement and enthusiasm from partners such as your organization. We appreciate your consideration, and we hope to work with you to create a mutually beneficial and enduring relationship.

Warm Regards,

Raas All-Stars XVI Directors
