Staff reports

The Minden Rotary Club is looking for sponsors for its hot air balloon race set for summer for next year.

The Carson Valley Days Hot Air Balloon Race will be held during Carson Valley Days, June 10 and 11, 2000, with balloons entered in the parade and ceremonies and activities planned at the Carson Valley Inn.

According to chair Gary Peterson, all proceeds will be used for scholarships and for activities in support of the ProTeen program.

Sponsors’ representatives will go up in balloon rides, take part in the champagne ceremony following the race and wear their sponsorship T-shirts.

There are five levels of sponsorship, with each level offering a varying package of perquisites.

The Founders’ Package costs $1,200; Named Sponsor, $800; Event Sponsor I, $550; Event Sponsor II, $450; and Corporate Logo Balloon, $850. Sponsors I and II can purchase basket banners for an additional $50.

Sponsorships are going fast, Peterson said, and he will cut the program off at the first 40 to sign up.
