NOTE: Please request a private meeting with the Sponsor Chair if your organization wants to “customize” your sponsorship in your market.  We can fit corporate needs that may not be on the “generic” sponsor brochure.  A meeting with you and your advisors may open additional possibilities that could only be recognized in a private meeting.  The Lombardi Award acknowledges that you have limited dollars for marketing and charitable purposes.  We know we can accomplish a lot with what you have.  Thank you for your consideration.
