Hole sponsorships are a great way to publicize your company’s name while supporting this very worthy cause in our community that serves many children of the Coastal Bend.

Three levels of hole sponsorship are available:

Lion: $2,000 (Includes four-person team)

Gazelle: $1,000 (Includes two players)

As a sponsor, a sign with your company’s logo and level of sponsorship will be placed at a tee box.
