Following up on the success of our first year soliciting Field Sign Sponsors at Avon's Buckingham Field, we are kicking off our 2017 campaign looking for additional sponsors interested a unique advertising opportunity.
The past few years we have seen some excellent improvements to our town's primary big diamond baseball field located at Buckingham Park. A new scoreboard, two new dugouts, batting cages and much more have all been recently added. We have accomplished much but there still is much to do to continue to improve Buckingham and provide our youth ballplayers with the best facilities possible to compete with neighboring towns.
This season we are hoping to add a press box behind home plate and make a number of other improvements to the field. One hundred percent of the money raised through this program is used to improve the baseball field and facilities at Buckingham.
I wanted to reach out to the friends of Avon Baseball to see if you would be interested in sponsoring a sign at Buckingham or if you know of a business that would be interested.
The costs for sponsorship for a sign are the following:
1 year = $800
2 years = $1,500 ($750 annual cost)
5 years = $3,000 ($600 annual cost)
If interested or if you know of someone who may be interested, please email me at email@example.com and I can provide more details on the program.
