Open to All Varsity, Junior Varsity & Freshman Players, Cheer, Dance, Marching Band and Colorguard Members

If you would like to include either a half-page or full-page tribute ad for your favorite player, cheerleader or member of the marching band and colorguard or dance squad in the new 2017 Mira Costa Football program distributed at all home games, we’ve made it easier than ever before. Here’s all you need to do:

  1. Choose whether you want a full-color half-page at $75 or full-page at $125. All contributions are tax-deductible. 
  2. Click http://www.mbxfoundation.org/product/52-general-mbx-payment for the MBX payment page and click on the MBX General Payment box to use your credit card. Write “MC Football Tribute Ad” inside the automatic pop-up box asking, “Use This Payment for.” 
  3. Forward a copy of your email confirmation to MC Football Program editor Kathy Wagner ( kawagner@mac.com ), who will confirm your order and work directly with you to obtain: 
             • Your choice of a design template (A, B, C or D attached)
             • The specific number of digital photos you’ll need to provide
             • The message you wish to include on behalf of your game day participant

That’s all there is to it! The final production deadline is August 4th , but it’s always best to get your confirmation right away to ensure placement.

Last fall, more than twice as many players, cheerleaders, members of the marching band and colorguard or dance teams participated than ever before.

Thank you for your support!
