2014 sponsor Tanner Falcon of Falcon Window Washing states, "I was looking to increase my clientele in and around the South Bay...and before the event even started I made a return on my investment! Sponsoring allowed me to access local families via the MBEF e-newsletter, logo placement, advertising, etc., but most importantly, I was able to meet my future customers at the expo after the race."
