Sponsorship Levels

Please keep in mind that your advertising does not stop when the event ends.  Mars Area Band Boosters run several web sites that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Select a package that contains one of our web sites as an advertising opportunity, and your business will have community exposure for a full calendar year (January 1 through December 31).

This is a great opportunity to help the Band Boosters, and to show your support for the hard-working students that are involved in the Mars School District music program.
