Letter Campaign

Our letter campaign event on August 18th has been pretty successful.  We had 16 athletes write letters to friends & family asking for support thru donations.  Approximately 150 letters were sent out. 

Donations have been coming in everyday thru mail & paypal.  We greatly appreciate our friends & family for supporting our athletes and getting us closer to our over all fundraising goal of $20,000.

Parents also showed up to feed the kids after an early morning pool practice.  We had bacon, eggs, hashbrowns (all the kids love trader joes hashbrowns) muffins, donuts & drinks.  

As you can see from the photos parents jumped in to give pointer to the athletes as they wrote quick notes to their friends & family, a little learning on actually addressing snail mail and of course much fun had by all.  Thank you to all that participated. 

It was a hot day but our athletes got out there & pounded the pavement.  Athletes visited business around town giving their fundraising pitch.  The kids visited the following:  Miller Lumber, Les Schwab, El Sancho, Costco, Pahlisch Homes, Podski, Subaru of Bend, Washington Trust Bank, Whole Foods, NY Subs, Autry 4 Seasons, Backporch Coffee, Bend Express Lube, Dough Nut, Sea Horse, Emerald City, Los Jalepenos, Lulu Lemon, Cyclebar, Pizza Mondo, FootZone, Outside In, Title Nine,Miyagi Ramen, Westside Barber Shop, Immersion Brewing, Gear Fix & Taste of Thai.  Our Athletes were repectful & did a great job explaining our fundraising needs.  We hope that all these businesses will get back to us & help support the community that supports them.   

Big shout-out to Taste of Thai who wrote a $100 check on the spot, Please support them as they did our Water Polo Program.
