I just wanted to add a quick update!

I have spent a lot of time working with our title sponsor for Terror on the Fox.

For a while now, my contact in the Oneida Casino Marketing Department has been working on a "mathematical equation" that will help you determine dollar value and "impressions" for a sponsorship.

I am excited to announce that I have been given this paperwork and the go ahead to share it with EVERYONE in my Sponsorship classes!

I believe this paperwork will help anyone and everybody in their quest to acquire sponsors for their event!

This "equation" will help you to determine and prove value to your current and future sponsors!

Take care,
