COTTONWOOD - It's tee time! Planning for the 10th annual Cottonwood Chamber Golf Tournament is well under way. Committee members are inviting area businesses to join as major sponsors.
Sponsorships are available with Gold ($500 includes one foursome, company name on golf cart and name on banner, business table for product promotion on tee box and two opportunities for flyers in Chamber Newsletter) or Silver Sponsor ($250 includes one two some, company name on golf cart, name on banner, business table for product promotion on tee box and one opportunity to place flyer in Chamber Newsletter.
For just $50, you can get a tee/cart/green sign on the day of the event.
Historically, sponsors return year after year to support the Cottonwood Golf Challenge.
"There are always spots available for new sponsors," notes event Chairperson Phyllis McDaniel. Many levels of sponsorship are available, from Gold and Silver to tee and cart.
The tournament is scheduled for July 21, at Verde Santa Fe. If history is any indication, the tournament is expected to sell out all 120 spots.
In addition to sponsorship opportunities, Chamber volunteers will also be calling community businesses for prizes and for items to be included in the golfers "goodie bags." There is no charge to promote your business by including a logo'd item in the goodie bags.
Several years ago, the Golf Challenge moved from October to July in order to attract more out of town players.
"We hope that area businesses, particularly hotels and restaurants, will see this as an excellent marketing opportunity during a traditionally slow time," explains McDaniel. "In addition to the application, prospective golfers will be sent a list of other things to see and do in the Verde Valley, so they'll be encouraged to make a family weekend out of it."
For nine consecutive years the outpouring of generosity from the business community has been awesome and almost every participant goes home with a raffle or silent auction prize.
