Booth Sponsorships - Airshows & Other Base Events

The purpose:
This sponsorship is for when your base has a large event coming up, typically this will be limited to Air Shows or other base events that open the base to the public. Any of these larger events that typically allow the base organizations to set up booths to sell items/raise funds. This is where the Booth Sponsorship comes in, allowing you to stock up on items that you may not be able to buy in bulk, and maximizing your abilities to raise funds.

What is in it for you:
You pay nothing up front. Initially an inventory is built of what will be sent. With this inventory you will know what reduced prices you will pay for which items, it will also show you projected profits based on if you sell at our suggest prices. Once the inventory is final, we will pay to ship you the items, you sell them at your event with a mark up and raise money. 

    Popular Item Pricing:
        - Aircraft Coins
                Unit cost:      $12
                MRSP:             $15-20

       See the bottom of this page for the stats from previous events we have sponsored.

What will you pay for:
After your event is over, you will pay to ship back whatever you did not sell. Once a verification of inventory is completed on our end, you will receive an invoice with the reduced pricing rates on the inventory for all the items sold (including items lost while in your possession).

Requirements/Acknowledgement:

  • Your base must be hosting a major/public event that allows your shop or private organization to participate in running a booth.
  • Your booth must be intended to raise money for your unit, not your personally owned booth that you are running for yourself.
  • This sponsorship opportunity is open to all career fields for generic military items (aircraft coins & keychains)
  • Try to make request 4 to 6 weeks before your event, this allows time to make sure I have everything you may need in stock.
  • After the inventory is decided on, your flight chief will need to email us from a .gov email approving the sponsorship.
  • Not all request will be approved, due to the increase of request for this program, selections will be limited to larger events.
  • Turnaround time needs to try to remain minimum, so all items that were not sold at the event need to be shipped back within 3 days of the event ending.
  • Once the invoice is sent, it will need to be paid with in 7 days.
