We are looking for community sponsors to support our upcoming Blaine Girls Invitational. Our 35th annual tournament will be Feb 16th & 17th this year and will be held at Blaine area schools and the new basketball center at the National Sports Center (NSC) in Blaine.
We anticipate over 85 teams participating with over 2,000 people attending!
We are asking local community sponsors to support us with a financial donation between $100 - $500 through one of our three sponsorship opportunities: Platinum, Gold, and Silver.
Platinum - $500
Gold - $250
Silver - $100
We have one tournament banner prominently placed at each school where games are played. These are large banners measuring 8' x 4'. We have each 1st place team stand under the banners for pictures to give the banner (and your sponsorship) maximum exposure. Here is an example picture of one of the 1st place teams from last year:
Here is a closeup of the banner. You'll note the Platinum sponsors are on the left side (large logo), Gold sponsors are in the center (medium logos), and Silver sponsors are on the right side (small logos).
Our season is September through March. Below are our website stats from last season. As a sponsor, your business will get great exposure from our website!
9/1/17 - 3/31/18 Stats
Platinum and Gold sponsors have the unique opportunity to promote their business directly to our 200+ parents. We send an email at the beginning of our season (September) and at the end of the season (March). This is an email we send exclusively to promote our sponsors. You get to promote anything you want in these emails. Platinum sponsors get to take advantage of both email opportunities and Gold sponsors can choose one email opportunity.
Our target this year is to get 3-4 Platinum sponsors, 3-4 Gold sponsors, and 10+ Silver sponsors!
As a sponsor, you are providing so much more than just support of our tournament. Your donation also helps us maintain our high-quality basketball programs at a reasonable cost to our families. As a small nonprofit organization, every dollar helps so we truly appreciate your support!
Blaine Youth Basketball is a 501c3 nonprofit organization in the state of Minnesota. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. We will provide you with a tax donation receipt upon receiving your sponsorship.

All sponsors will need to provide us with a high-resolution logo as .eps, .pdf, or high resolution .tiff file. The resolution should be 300 dpi or larger format.
