Munster's Got Talent--2020 sponsorship and ad opportunities

February 25th, 2020
Coming up on FEBRUARY 25, 2020. Held at Theater at the Center here in Munster. Sponsorship committee
(Dejan Ilijevski, Trisha Ohnstad, Alice Cannon) working on getting sponsors/donors for the program book,
We need help selling ads and getting sponsors!!  Anna Sklar is working with Theater to coordinate exhibitor
sponsors at the venue and plan food/concessions, etc. Linda B. working on ticket sales and auditions with Mr. M.

We REALLY need sponsors and local businesses to buy ads for the program book to make this event a
financial success! We are asking all parents to help us out with contacting potential businesses/donors with
whom they may have a personal relationship (personal relationships greatly increase the likelihood that a
business will donate/sponsor). Information regarding ad prices and sponsorship options is located on the
Band Sponsorship website on the Munster’s Got Talent page.  Please click on the MGT Logo for website
information and forward it to anyone who may be a potential donor.
Deadline for sponsors/ads is January 15, 2020.

Publicity: Jeanette Babus and Stephanie Corral to work with committees to increase publicity of upcoming
concerts and fundraising events, especially Munster’s Got Talent. Thank you for helping!
