There are many levels of sponsorship that have traditionally appealed to Chapter members and their families. If you are interested, please contact the Chapter office at

There are two options to sponsor at the Bronze level.  For a cash sponsorship, two Gala tickets are included. For a prize donation valued at $600, there is an opportunity to purchase 2 Gala Tickets at a special 50% reduction ($175 for 2).
