Dear Corporate Supporter,


We want you to know how much we appreciate your support throughout the year. Our Annual Luncheon is a special, intimate opportunity to interact with NJEDge.Net membership that is only open to companies who have paid to participate in NJEDge.net's Corporate Sponsorship program. Our partners are welcome to participate in this warm and relaxed event by attending and/or sponsoring the events at the luncheon.


The luncheon is NJEDge.Net's opportunity to treat our membership as special guests. The lunch is a great chance for our corporate supporters to have a significant and memorable impact. As our members are guests at this event, there is no charge for them to attend. Your sponsorship helps offset the cost of this wonderful thank-you to our members.


We hope that you will join us in relaxing, socializing, learning, and creating and maintaining the relationships that make NJEDge.Net so valuable to the NJ K-20 community.
