One of the largest airshows in the Northwest needs some sponsors to help bring more entertainment to the production. Tom Brown, Chair of the "Airshow of the Cascades" committee says 60% of visitors to the show come from Deschutes County, and statistics show people who come to the airshows have money to spend.
"People that attend an Airshow; 79% of them have some college, 45% have at least 1 degree; 63% earn $50,000 a year, 75% own their own homes; and 73% have made an Internet purchase in the last 6 months. It’s a way for sponsors to actually reach people. It’s more than just giving money, you're getting back something from it." Brown says the major sponsor for the past few years, Butler Aircraft has decided not to sponsor the show this year. This years Airshow of the Cascades is August 24th and 25th. If you wish to help sponsor the show, contact the Madras-Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce.
