Beyond the satisfaction of providing support to our student-athletes and coaches, your 2012-13 corporate membership in Panther Pride will expose your business to the masses in Panther Nation. We now have all four classes of Panthers in our third year in existence, all of whom live, work and shop right here in our community.
Last year our website,www.ridgepointpanthers.org, had over 80,000 hits, double the traffic from our first year. Attendance at our second Booster Ball shot up over 300% and our membership increased over 50%. This year will be another that is highlighted by growth in numbers and success on the field, all of which helps get our sponsors noticed for their generous support of Ridge Point athletics.
We LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE IN THE PRIDE
Panther Pride will work to make sure that your business is known as a supporter of Panther athletics. Our Silver Supporters are listed on our sponsor page and Panther Nation members also have web banners with hyperlinks rotating on our home page.Members of the Panther Pack have all of that exposure plus logo signage and P.A. announcements of their businesses at home games.
All of our Corporate Panther Pride members also had additional opportunities for broad exposure through team sponsorships and auction donations, plus many more and varied opportunities to get their business seen and talked about at Ridge Point events such as team programs, Newcoming, golf tournament fundraisers, Pantherfest and the 5K run.Our membership committee as well as our coaches and players are available to assist you in whatever ways you want to show your support for the Panthers.
Display Your Panther Pride Membership
All of our corporate members proudly display the Panther Pride wall sign in their window, wall or reception area, letting their customers and patrons know that they too are part of the loyal and growing hoard of Ridge Point students, faculty, family, friends and neighbors
With the tremendous support we have for Ridge Point in our neighborhood, in 2011-12, Panther Pride introduced the 3x5 Panther Pride flag for our members to fly on game day or all year long. Our Corporate Members are no exception and will receive a Panther Pride flag at just our second tier of corporate membership. Hang it in your store, or fly it on game days in front of your business. It is a great way to show the neighborhood that you are a member of the Pride.
CONCESSION STAND OPPORTUNITY
Panther Pride will be building two outdoor concession stands this year and our corporate partners will have the opportunity to help by joining the PANTHER NATION or the PANTHER PACK, which includes a large sized paver engraved with their name and logo, as well as a place on our thank you walls for all of our fans to see.(a second paver- one at each location- can be added for $400 more).
Ridge Point Athletics depends on the support of our boosters to maintain and enhance the basic functions of our athletics program, but we also need benefactors to help us make the big leaps required to fund the needed infrastructure of our school’s athletic facilities.As a new school, Ridge Point was provided with the very basics to field teams; however, the funds were not available to construct practice and storage facilities, maintenance vehicles, concession and merchandise venues, adequate scoreboards and even spectator seating.These items and other amenities are part of a typical high school athletic complex, but the potential to provide these facilities depends on our major benefactors.If you or your company can step up to help in our effort to fund these projects, please contact one of our fundraising specialists for more information on how you can help:
