LOCAL ARTS EVENTS. The local opera and ballet companies usually have fund raising events throughout the year where they ask local businesses to participate as sponsors donating their services as a prize in the raffle. You can offer your aerating services as a prize in exchange for advertising in the programs. The people who attend these functions are good prospects for your business.
