A message from the Classic Committee

 

Dear Friend,


On behalf of The Upstate Historically Black College and University (HBCU) Classic Committee, we extend an invitation to you to become an Official Partner of this awesome event. In these challenging economic times, it is more important than ever to stay connected to the community and its development. The Upstate HBCU Classic is the perfect inroad for your organization or business to demonstrate its commitment by supporting activities and educational projects designed to reach out to those in need and deserving of our support.

The Upstate Historically Black Colleges and Universities Classic is committed to the development of relationships between the upstate of South Carolina’s community and Historically Black Colleges and Universities from across this state and our nation. The Classic Weekend provides our community with exceptional educational, cultural and sporting events that are designed to motivate and empower our youth to continue their efforts toward academic excellence.

As an Upstate HBCU Classic partner, you will enjoy name exposure and recognition during a series of more than five events throughout the weekend. From Friday evening’s Coach’s Reception to Saturday’s HBCU Football Classic featuring the football teams from Fort Valley State University and Benedict College, where more than 20,000 people will participate in the weekends festivities.

The upstate of South Carolina has experienced tremendous growth over the last decade. With this continued success, our obligation to the advancement of society is stronger than ever. We believe that exposing the youth of upstate to the Historically Black College and University experience will encourage students to realize the importance of a college education and its correlation to career advancement opportunities. The planned events promote these ideas and will expose students to an enriching environment.

We are looking forward to partnering with you and your organization. To that end, we have prepared this partnership prospectus to detail the opportunities to promote and associate your brand with the Upstate HBCU Classic.

I hope you will give consideration to becoming an Upstate HBCU Classic partner. I realize that in times like these, you have to be careful about every partnership opportunity that comes across your desk. We strongly believe this is a winning opportunity for you and the community.

 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact  Us
