The Astromechs would like to thank the following organizations have provided support or helped our team with fundraising for the 2017-18 season so far. Without these sponsors' generous support for our team, we would not be able to compete in FIRST.
In addition to thanking current sponsors, the Astromechs are always looking for new sponsors to join our FIRST family and assist us with paying for our competitive season. If your company sponsors our team, you could help us to pay for robot parts, Outreach materials, tournament registration fees, team shirts and banners, and robot transportation fees. In addition, we would list your company name and description here on our website, thank you on our social media, and send you periodic updates on our season.
If your company should wish to support us financially this season, please contact us through firstname.lastname@example.org.

Even if you cannot support our team monetarily, please let us know if you would like updates on our competition season!
