Become a Morton Heat Sponsor!

Morton Heat Basketball is preparing for the 2019/2020 season and we would like for you to be involved in our success. Morton Basketball Association is a not for profit organization established to provide grade school level girls and boys of Morton an opportunity to learn and play the game of basketball. The MBA originally organized the Heat teams in the year 2000 to provide Morton grade school age girls and boys a competitive travel basketball experience. Morton Heat Travel and Travel-Lite basketball teams consist of girls and boys teams, 3rd through 6th grade. MHB has expanded to organize and run an In-house basketball league, which gives all 3rd-6th grade Morton boys and girls the opportunity to practice and play team basketball in a non-travel competitive program. MHB continues to expand its program by offering more opportunities to the boys and girls of Morton. Our sponsors’ generous support helps Morton Heat Basketball continue to look at different ways to offer basketball opportunities to the kids of Morton.

Each year we reach out to individuals and local area businesses in an effort to raise funds that help us offset the costs that are associated with this quality program. The organization is entirely made up of volunteer staff, so all of the money raised is used to pay referees, tournament fees, uniform and equipment costs, and other costs directly related to the Morton Heat Basketball programs. In an effort to show our appreciation, a list of our sponsors is printed on our team programs which are handed out at our tournaments and qualifying sponsors headline our website for an entire year (www.mortonheat.org). This season, MHB will again have sponsor poster boards that will be displayed at home Heat games and during Heat In-house league games in appreciation of their support. To better facilitate the production of these poster boards in a timely manner, please submit your support by November 1, 2019 to ensure a spot on the poster board.

Morton Heat Basketball offers three levels of sponsorship to qualify for your name or business to be printed on our programs and displayed on our website and on a sponsor banner. MHB also welcomes any monetary gift of any level. A ‘Gold’ level
sponsor consists of a gift of $500 or more. A ‘Silver’ level is a gift of $250 to $499 and a ‘Bronze’ level is a gift of $100 to $249. The entire MHB program appreciates your consideration of a sponsorship this year. Without your involvement, it would be impossible for this program to succeed. We believe you are helping us teach young boys and girls of Morton not only basketball skills, but the importance of healthy competition that is tempered with teamwork and respect. We believe these positive attributes will help shape their character both on and off the court. If you have any questions about your sponsorship or the MHB program, please feel free to contact myself or any of our board members. Please complete the Sponsorship Form and mail it back to us at MBA, P.O. Box 933, Morton, IL 61550, with a check to help us sustain this valuable program for the youth of our community.
