Program Book 2016/2017- Ad Space Sale

What is this fundraiser?  The Parent's Music Club of the Portsmouth Public Schools is publishing a program book (similar to a "Playbill") for distribution at select Portsmouth public school performing arts events throughout the school year. Ad space in this program book is available for sale to the general community. This is a major fundraiser for the Portsmouth schools performing arts department - revenue from this fundraiser goes to support many performing arts programs throughout the school year.
**The first publication of this year's program book will be for the Portsmouth Holiday Concerts. There is still time to secure an ad that will appear in our Program Book for all of our concerts this year.
Who benefits?   This is a fundraiser sponsored by PMC that directly benefits students in the Portsmouth public schools performing arts department.
What am I buying?  As a business, you are buying advertising space in our program book. As a parent, family member, or community member,you may buy any size space to relay your own personal message. Available spaces are: full page, half page, quarter page, business card size, and personal message spaces.
Why should I buy?  Businesses get several times the advertising for the price of one. Ads in our program book get community-wide exposure at a number of well-attended public events throughout the school year. At most of these events, ads are also running as a projected slide show at the front of the venue before the start of the event. For students receiving personal messages, the program book makes a great memento. All proceeds benefit performing arts in the Portsmouth public schools.
