AMI NORTH HARBOUR NETBALL: News
Enabling us to make it happen
With the winter netball season now finished, it is timely to acknowledge our Netball North Harbour sponsors and advertisers who have supported us throughout the season.
Only 32% of our income is provided by subscriptions and affiliation fees from the game. This means we rely on sponsors, advertisers and fundraising to raise the balance required to run our game and facility.
For those of you that are regular visitors, you may have noticed some new signage on the courts recently with additional sponsors and advertisers joining our existing Community Partners and other supporters. We are always striving to find funding through new sponsorship and advertising but it is also important we recognise our long term supporters who appreciate the value of enduring partnerships. These sponsors have tremendous community spirit and help us keep netball affordable for our members.
AMI are our naming rights sponsor and they are committed to supporting netball and having a positive sporting influence within the local community. As well as providing much needed sponsorship, AMI also organise and manage the On Court Crew down at the courts over the winter season. Thanks to AMI, the On Court Crew have handed out much appreciated hair ties, nail clippers, plasters, hand warmers, ponchos and other handy items over the last few months.
Barfoot & Thompson are becoming very familiar with our facilities with a number of auction days held in our Function Room during 2013. Barfoot & Thompson are enormously involved with netball from grass roots to the international stage, not only supporting Netball North Harbour but also sponsoring the Northern Mystics and the Fast5 Netball World Series.
Huge thanks to Benefitz who have not only supported Netball North Harbour for many years, but also assisted with the printing of our fundraiser recipe book “Feed – it’s game on in the kitchen”, which is available from our office or website www.netballnorthharbour.co.nz.
MaiFM have recently renewed their partnership with Netball North Harbour and we are looking forward to seeing them and the Street Team down at the courts in future.
KPMG, another long standing Community Partner have supported Netball North Harbour since 2008. Prior to this, KPMG were on board as sponsors to the FUJIFILM Force from 2004 to 2007. We are also grateful to other sponsors and advertisers - some who have partnered with us recently – SAS Sport, JustWorkout, North Harbour Ford & Mazda, Simpson Western, Shoe Science, Fitlink, Career Team, Korbond, Golden Gowns, Simply Fresh and PhotoLife.
We encourage you to thank all our sponsors by using their services and endorsing them to others whenever you have the opportunity.
