• Cedar Bluff Farragut Optimists are offering a sponsorship program where corporate sponsors are eligible to sponsor a CBFO Volleyball team with the business’s name printed on the back of the jersey showing your support and contribution to the league. The name will be approximately 1 to 2 inches in height depending on the length of your name and the space available based on size of the jerseys. Cost to sponsor a team will be $150.00 per team and is understood by this league that 100 percent of your sponsorship is considered tax deductible as advertisement cost. This league does not intend to advise on tax consequences and suggest you review with your tax consultant to assure the tax credit. There can be no guarantees to which team will wear your sponsored jersey, but if you would like to choose a division in which you wish to sponsor we will try to honor that request. League officials advise that due to limited time for jersey printing and registration process they cannot guarantee any special request for particular team sponsorship. For more information, contact CBFO Volleyball at cbfovolleyball@charter.net
