Sky Sox, CenturyLink promoting small businesses

skysox_fireworks_games_21CenturyLink, in partnership with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox and the Colorado Springs Small Business Development Center, is promoting the Small Business Spotlight, which provides exposure to 35 small businesses over the course of the minor league baseball season.

The Spotlight is designed to help small businesses in the Colorado Springs area. In the current economic environment, many small businesses are working harder than ever to meet their budgets and grow their businesses. CenturyLink provides these companies with an opportunity to market themselves at Security Service Field during the Sky Sox 2014 season free of charge. In addition, CenturyLink has partnered with the Colorado Springs Small Business Development Center to help supply consulting and training to existing and new businesses.

The selected businesses will receive a marketing package provided free of charge by CenturyLink that includes:

  • A marketing table in the main concourse to showcase their organization;
  • Four tickets to the game and VIP parking;
  • Public address announcement and live in-game scoreboard recognition;
  • A ceremonial first pitch; and
  • On-air recognition during the Sky Sox broadcast on AM 1300 “The Animal.”

Any small business wishing to be considered for the “Small Business Spotlight” can apply online at where a nomination form will be posted. Members of the community can nominate their own business or someone else’s.

To nominate a small business, send a completed application to Alyce Bofferding at

  1. I am a personal consultant with Perfectly Posh. I sell all natural pampering products. I think it is great to offer this opportunity to people. My family is military, veteran myself, and we love being station so close to watch games! Thank you for your time.
