2019 First Thursday
Scavenger Hunt Sponsorship
First Thursday Scavenger Hunt

Our goal for 2019 is to rebrand First Thursday with a Scavenger Hunt via the StriveOn app. Each First Thursday will have a scavenger hunt that highlights six different businesses in the district, as well as our usual Screen on the Green. We hope this redirects the focus of this event to our business district and highlights late Thursday evening hours for shopping. 

The costs for banners, posters, advertising, licensing and permitting, equipment, and more can bring the cost of the First Thursday season to over $10,000. Please consider supporting this collaboration in our community. You can contact the Executive Director to learn more or download our sponsorship form here. 


JPCSMS will partner with you to bring a program to the JP Centre/South business district. Program topics can vary widely and address issues important to you in Jamaica Plain. We can host business to business seminars, resident forums, business breakfasts, and fun community events for all. Contact us to see how you can get involved, and we can suggest or develop a program for your budget.

Program sponsors will be acknowledged as the host of our program event and listed on our website, all press releases, social media, printed promotional materials for the program, our monthly newsletter, and thanked publicly at our program event. Sponsors are also featured in our Annual Report.

Help us enrich our district with unique and creative programming perfectly suited for Jamaica Plain!
