Dear OCHS Crew Families,
The Boosters have revamped the Crew Sponsorship program for the coming 2020 season. The value of sponsorship dollars has been established by many of our families already and we would like to put more focus on raising more money through businesses in our region. Please consider giving this new endeavor a try as the opportunity to raise money is limitless. Feel free to contact Erica Fisher or Kate Strickland – Sponsorship Committee Co-Chairs with any questions.
How It Works:
*You will be supplied a list of business. While having personal connections with business owners is very helpful in securing sponsorships, it is not necessary for this program. Our sponsorship committee has worked long and hard on a list of all Cape May County businesses, most with contact information, however all business or corporate sponsorships from any location are welcome.
*Email template provided – suggestion that initial email/phone call comes from student-athlete. Send personal email from athlete with OCHS Crew Sponsorship letter and form attached. Follow up with a phone call from athlete or visit business if possible.
February 15 (earlier preferred) – Deadline to let Sponsorship Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org) know if you plan on participating. This does not commit you to turning in sponsorship donations, it establishes which businesses you’ll contact. If you know you are participating sooner, please let us know asap with any businesses you have a personal connection with. Those with no contacts will be given a list of 25 Cape May County businesses to start with. You are not limited to the list supplied to you, but the committee will need to know what other businesses you intend to contact asap so that one company isn’t being contacted by multiple rowers.
March 6 – Deadline for sponsorship forms/commitments/donations to be turned in to Mario Japzon, president.
