The District Fifteen Educational Foundation is creating its very own "Palatine-opoly" board game for release later this summer, and it is extending invitations for everyone in the District 15 community to participate.

Just like in the classic board game, players will be able to purchase real estate as they make their way around and around the game board. In "Palatine-opoly," though, the real estate they buy will be local businesses and historic landmarks.

"The Foundation feels this is a great way to offer a community-based opportunity for our local businesses to help us raise funding for District 15 schools," said Brier Nelson, chair of the Foundation's Board of Trustees. "For years to come, these businesses could be the start square or new high-end property everyone wants to buy. Ultimately, these businesses will play a big part in families coming together to make memories around a board game that brings out their hometown pride for Palatine."

Sponsorship costs for board spaces range from $350-$1,000 depending upon their location. While sponsoring actual spaces on the game board will provide businesses with the most exposure, opportunities to be listed in the center of the game board as a "Friend of the Foundation" are also available for as little as $50.

The Foundation must receive all sponsorships by February 28, so don't delay! Get in the game, and reserve your "Palatine-opoly" space today!
