What does it mean to “sponsor a scene?”

Sponsoring a Lights of Lakeland scene is a fun way to gain great exposure and reach potential customers this holiday season. To best fit your marketing budget and needs, we offer four levels of scene sponsorships for you to select from. Each level provides different benefits (including a sign above your sponsored scene and your company logo in the LOL magazine), and varies in price. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring a scene, contact Madison McNulty.
