Carolina Lightning Sponsorship Program
by posted 08/27/2013
 

Lightning Parents and Potential Sponsors,

Carolina Lightning Hockey's Sponsorship Program has been developed to support the growth of, and to benefit the entire Lightning organization.
 
We have multiple levels of sponsorship support embedded into our program, to facilitate those sponsoring the Lightning (you as a business or parent), directed to individual teams, and/or large organizational/corporate sponsorships to support the organization as a whole. Either way, Lightning sponsorships will benefit your child in some form or fashion.
 
Participation is entirely voluntary but very much appreciated. This is a great opportunity to highlight your business on Lightning jerseys at games and tournaments. Please review the Sponsorship Program details on the Lightning website Documents page at
http://carolinalightninghockey.com/Documents.asp?n=83502&org=carolinalightninghockey.com

Additionally, if you have the professional skill to help guide/run this effort and represent the Lightning organization in support of obtaining corporate sponsors , it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me to get involved.

On behalf of all our great kids, and the entire Lightning organization, thank you for your consideration and support.
Regards
Don Schaap
President
