You can also ask local businesses to donate to MYSOโ€™s Playathon. Donations of $300 or more receive a number of marketing benefits. See Playathon Sponsor Opportunities info sheet below.

How to solicit business donations:

  • Share the Playathon Sponsorship Opportunities info sheet (also linked at right) with the business owner.
  • In order for the business to be recognized on sponsor signage, the donation must be received by October 1.
  • In addition to the text on โ€œHow to Raise Funds,โ€ tell the business owner:
    • Business donor names are posted on signage at the concert at Bayshore Town Center, seen by an audience of approx. 3,000
    • MYSO is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization. Certain gifts may be tax-deductible.
    • Remind them what MYSO means to you and how MYSO impacts so many young lives and changes our community for the better.
  • Before soliciting larger businesses, please contact VP of Development Rebecca Owen at
