from Communications Chair Ron Carter

You are a business owner.  A key objective is to establish your brand in the market you serve.  You do this through advertising and word-of-mouth….and connecting your brand to established, respected community events.  One such event, arguably Kingston-North Kitsap’s most prestigious, is the upcoming Kingston-North Kitsap Swing for Rotary Golf Tournament, June 22 at White Horse Golf Club.  Sponsorship opportunities exist to further the establishment of your brand in the market.  For example, for only $450 you can sponsor a hole.  This investment in the community includes your booth and your representatives at the tee box of your hole, greeting a full field of golfers with logo’d giveaways and information about your business.  There is no better marketing than one-on-one relationship-building.  Following the golf action, your representatives - as many as two - are invited to enjoy a first-rate awards and auction dinner at White Horse.  What a way to get involved in your community, to connect with customers, and to have fun.

Only 124 players get into the tournament.  Each year players rave about the fun they have.  Many say it is the best charity event they play in each year.  For $160, here’s what you get:  18 holes of golf at White Horse, one of the northwest’s premier golf destinations, cart rental, range balls, one set of mulligans per team, lunch, tee gifts, and dinner and beverages at the post-tournament awards dinner.  The date again is June 22, with first activities beginning late morning.  To register yourself, or your team, go to knkrotarygolf.net

            Why does the Kingston North Kitsap Rotary Club - all fifty strong - dedicate so much time and energy to this event?  To benefit the Kids of North Kitsap.  Proceeds will support Kingston High School Interact Service Club, scholarships for Kingston High graduates, Food4Kids (a feeding program during school vacations), ShareNet backpacks and school supplies, equipment and uniforms, arts programs, and career days at several local schools, internships for UW and WWU students at Stillwaters Environmental Center, and opening of Coffee Oasis in Kingston, an outreach center for at-risk teens. 

            Join in the fun.  Do something good in your community, so that you may do well.  Become a sponsor, a golfer, or both.  Go to knkrotarygolf.net
