Sports Star Awards - Sponsorship Opportunity

We are currently providing an opportunity for local businesses to support the Sports Star Awards through sponsorship. The City commits extensive funds to making these awards possible, however the awards would not be a true community partnership without valued sponsors. Sponsoring of one of the award categories will provide your business with significant exposure before, during and after the award ceremony. Contact us on 9528 0333 or to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
