Octagon is "seeking $350,000 to $500,000 for title sponsorship of the Millrose Games, which it acquired from IMG," according to Terry Lefton of BRANDWEEK. Octagon's John Guppy said that "sponsor benefits include four units in an NBC-televised highlights show, hospitality, tickets, inclusion in an outdoor ad campaign preceding the event, and branding on a new floor being purchased for the event." Virtual signage is being considered (BRANDWEEK, 10/18). GORGE IN THE JUNGLE: The Subaru Gorge Games will be held July 8-15, 2000 at the Gorge River and Mt.
