Once again, the Stars were able to keep player season fees relatively flat year-over-year while maintaining same amount of practice ice per team. Our fundraising committee has found other ways to cover costs through fundraisers such website banner ads and dasher board advertising. These programs are designed to raise revenues for the Stars and provide opportunities to REDUCE YOUR FEES.
Why are these fundraisers important?
These fundraisers are important to the Stars’ organization in the following ways:
The success and growth of our program depends on the parents, coaches and managers to volunteer their time to help these objectives become a reality. Thank you for all you do!
FUNDRAISING: Reducing Your Team Fees Just Got Easier!
Families who sell ads will benefit more than ever this season. With a little bit of effort you can even skate for free!
Stars Offer a 50/50 Split on Fundraising Proceeds
When you sell an ad you get 50% of the money. This form explains the rules, format and specifications for each player to sell ads for placement on the Glenview Stars website.
There is the ability to sell ads on the heavily-trafficked Glenview Stars website. Visitors to the site access information related to the Glenview Stars hockey program including team rosters and photos, schedules, organization philosophy, rules and updates for events and activities and links to area hockey rinks and league websites.
Advertisers on the Glenview Stars website will have access to a site which produced the following metrics for the most recent season:

Prices, Specifications and Samples to Share With Advertisers
The Stars have teamed with the Glenview Ice Center to offer dasher board advertising. Ads are 8' x 3' and are placed so that everyone can see the ads at the rink. The ads get great exposure since teams from across the Chicago area visit the ice center all season long.
Proceeds from the dashers sold by Stars’ families will be split with the park district. The Stars will share a portion of the proceeds with you.
How Advertising Sales Helps All the Stars
While we are thrilled to offer you that 50% to help you reduce your hockey fees, it is worth mentioning that the other 50% of sponsor dollars goes into our operating budget to help pay for ice time and other costs of running the organization.
Every dollar of that 50% that flows into the organization is a dollar we do not have to charge anyone in hockey fees.
So we all benefit, and we all owe a "thank you" to those who sell ads. Additionally, we can thank our sponsors by choosing to do business with them.
How to Get Your Rebate
After the deadline, the Stars will tabulate all your sales and issue rebate checks. The Stars are eager to give you back the money you earned, but we ask that you understand the following points:
1. To be eligible for your rebate, you must be up to date with your team fee payments. The Stars cannot issue rebates to anyone who has not paid their team fees.
2. Do not deduct money from your team fee payment checks. This program is a rebate, which means that a check for your 50% of the sponsorship will be issued to you from the Stars.
Please do not subtract money from your team fee payments. This greatly complicates the accounting that our volunteers must perform, so we must ask you for your cooperation.
Own Your Sponsors and Benefit Year After Year
If you sell an ad this year* we think you should get the first chance to sell it again next year.
Anyone who makes a sponsorship sale has the exclusive right to renew it until Oct. 8 of next year. After that date, any player in the organization may approach and sell any sponsorship to any source no matter who sold it last year.
Saturday, February 10, 2018, is the date for this season’s annual fundraiser. The Stars have one fundraiser per year and this benefit is it! Last year's dinner dance proceeds were used to fund the coach/players development fund which sent coaches to clinics to update them on the newest techniques. It also funded the purchase of an iPad and Coaches Eye software for teams to use to review games.
We have incorporated new enhancements to our program this year that have been and will be funded by the proceeds from the dinner dance. They include the subscription to the coaches' evaluation software, Zoom Reports, and additional skills.
The event will be held at Mission Hills Country Club, 1677 S. Mission Hills Rd, Northbrook, Ill. Cocktails and bidding on auction items begins at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner and dancing. Check out for the auction will begin at 9:45 p.m. and the event will end at 11 p.m.
More detailed information will be forthcoming regarding the benefit. Each team will donate a basket to the auction with a value of approximately $250. Most teams have it covered already. If yours does not, please consider helping your manager and take on this responsibility. Each team will be required to provide volunteers to help with the dance in terms of set up, selling raffle tickets, etc. A Sign Up Genius form link will be available soon.
