The Inaugural Year for the White River Athletic Hall of Fame has made available some unique sponsorship opportunities. From the Actual Hall of Fame sign to be hung in the gym foyer to awards and plaques to the actual cost of the ceremony night and reception the costs are mounting. This is where White River Hall of Fame sponsors fill in the gap.
Sponsors will receive recognition on a Sponsor Plaque and in the induction night program, on the White River Athletic Hall of Fame website and announced during the induction ceremony on January 17, 2020.
