Penfield Varsity Boys Soccer Team Seeks Corporate Sponsors
Through May 1st
With recent cuts in state funding for extracurricular school programs, more and more school sports programs for students find themselves seeking corporate sponsors to offset the costs of running these programs and ensuring that all students who wish to participate, can. These programs are so important on so many different levels, least of all to counter the obesity problem in the U.S., but also the values team membership instill in our young children.
The Penfield Varsity Boys Soccer Team is offering an opportunity for businesses to have their logo displayed on three 4 x 16 foot banners that will be displayed at all home games (approximately 10 of them) during the fall 2013 season. All sponsorship funds will be used to offset costs such as transportation fees and uniform costs. The link below includes a prototype of what the banner will look like. Deadline to participate is May 1st.
