Sponsorship Opportunities

Spring 2016      

 

Dear St. Mary’s Centered Business Leader,

This year’s Oyster Festival will be our 50th and we expect it to be an awesome event. Recognizing that businesses are continually bombarded with charitable donation requests to support numerous charities in the county, we are offering sponsorship levels to this event which include incentives. We urge you to consider the value of becoming a sponsor or to providing in-kind volunteer workers, materials, or business discounts for a special discount book we plan to offer. In so doing, please recall that all levels of sponsorships are partially tax deductible and go towards supporting less fortunate members of our own community. We have enclosed a sponsorship packet for your use.

 

Yours in Rotary Service,

President Bob Merritts

President Elect Elise Weston

 Annual U.S. Oyster Festival at St. Mary’s County, MD
