A Sponsor Checklist to log all of the important details about the event is provided as a PDF. This form includes information about the concert, local sponsors, welcomers or hosts, distinguished guests and VIPs, proclamations and presentations, media support, promotion record, comments and suggestions, and guest musicians. Sponsors should complete this form and return it to the Tour Coordinator, along with copies of promotional materials.

PDF Instructions

Because our sponsors use such a variety of computers and software, we have prepared these files as PDFs (portable document format). These files are opened using Adobe Acrobat Reader. If you do not have Acrobat Reader, it is shareware that is included with many page layout software packages or is easily downloaded from the internet http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep.html
