The new was announced in a press release on the event’s Facebook page.
“If you’re not registering a boat, you can sign-up as a sponsor at any level,” the release stated. “If you would like to be a sponsor or have questions about the different sponsorship opportunities please contact us by email [email protected] or [email protected] or phone at 315-778-6427 Receipts can be provided for your 2021 or 2022 taxes.”
