Downtown group seeks STAR sponsorships
The Texas Downtown Association is getting ready to pound the streets to get STAR sponsorships for the Texas Downtown Association Conference taking place in New Braunfels Nov. 12-14,1997.
“Twenty-five sponsorships have already been sold just from word of mouth alone. It’s really exciting. We’ll be going door-to-door over the next few weeks to personally invite our merchants to take advantage of this great opportunity,” said Lynn Fountain, Main Street director and logistical support for the conference.
For $25, STAR sponsorship provides two stars identifying a business as a conference sponsor. One star will be prominently featured in the
Civic Center during the conference. The other star will go in the sponsor’s place of business and will be suitable for window or counter-top display.
In addition, STAR sponsors will be shown and listed on a special conference map to be handed out to all conference attendees at the Civic Center check-in desk.
“We expect just about everyone in the downtown area to participate since sponsorship costs are low and visibility is so high for this statewide audience,” says Marian Benson, State Conference Chair and owner of a downtown fine lady’s apparel shop. For more information on how to gain STAR sponsorship status' contact Benson at 625-6826 or send your check made
