In 1994, the Pontiac High School administration formed a committee of area businessmen to seek their input on ways to revitalize the tournament and increase tournament finances to cover the ever-increasing cost of hosting the holiday tournament. One of the sponsorship ideas was IPTAY, an acronym that stands for “I Pay Twenty A Year.” What it amounts to is a mini-booster club, with different privileges based on the amount of the contribution. For $25, you would gain “Member” status, which entitles you to one (1) holiday tournament T-shirt and one (1) tournament program. For $55, you would gain a “Patron” status, which entitles you to a holiday tournament T-shirt, tournament program, and one (1) day pass to the hospitality room. This pass entitles you to complimentary food and drinks for one day in our hospitality room. For $110, you would gain a “Sponsor” status, which entitles you to one (1) Holiday Tournament T-shirt, one (1) tournament program and two (2) passes that entitle you to complimentary food and drinks for the entire three (3) days of the tournament.
It is my hope that you will consider becoming a first time donor or a donor again if you have contributed in the past. Thank you for your consideration of this program. If you are interested in becoming a donor, please complete the application that is attached and return to Connie Rebholz at Pontiac High School. If you have any additional questions, please contact me at (815) 844-6919 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
