Cost — Only $25.00 per person!!!
We have made every attempt to make this the most affordable reunion weekend possible. The reason we are able to charge only $25.00 per person is we are counting on individual and corporate donations. If you personally are able to be a sponsor, that is greatly appreciated. If your business or place of employment can donate, that is great too!
Sliver Sponsorship - $100.00 +
Gold Sponsorship - $200.00 +
As a sponsor, you and or your business will be listed and thanked in the reunion itinerary that will be given out to all guests. This is a great way for your business to write off the expense and get exposure to many people. In these tough times we are trying to make it affordable to all. So we will really be counting on these donations. These are much appreciated!
Make all checks out to Greg Hoffstetter and in the memo, put “Dixie Reunion”. I have an extra account were the deposits will be made and then all monies paid out to the Sirata. The reunion Committee will oversee these expenses.
