Background Discussion
  • On June 3, 2014, the Board of County Commissioners approved expenditures in the amount of $25,000 for CVB to market and promote the Regatta.
  • Since the Regatta received more in-kind advertising than was expected, the CVB didn't expend the entire $25,000 for advertising, and requests to expend $4,800 of those intended monies towards Regatta operating expenses instead.   The operating expenses include:  event laminated tags/passes and event signs, decals, and banners.
