Sponsor Testimonial
"In 2017 we became a sponsor of the Virginia Commonwealth Games.  The staff at Virginia Amateur Sports did a fantastic job communicating with us throughout the year, and we felt that our sponsorship support was truly appreciated and valued. Not only that, but we received great recognition for our support.  We look forward to continuing our sponsorship of the Commonwealth Games."
