There are several levels of banquet sponsorship that can be donated on behalf of both individuals or businesses. Many businesses opt to sponsor an RGS banquet as a philanthropic path to advertise their business, even if they don't utilize the tickets that come with sponsorship. Many sponsors opt to gift these tickets to employees, friends and/or clients. In addition to funding regional habitat improvements, dinner tickets, RGS/AWS memberships, and promoting their business and/or services- sponsors receive one ticket into a special sponsor-only fine grade shotgun raffle that evening, 3 tickets for the RGS National Raffle and their choice between the RGS Print of the Year or ticket(s) in a special year-end banquet sponsor-only raffle.
