Dear Seattle Businesses,
My name is Keffrey Fazio. I am the Head Boys Basketball Coach at West Seattle. I am in the process of planning a trip for my Boys Varsity Basketball team to a major Christmas High School Basketball Tournament in Las Vegas, Nevada. The dates of the trip will be from December 26 – December 30, 2012. The purpose of our trip is for further skill development and the chance to gain exposure against some of the best talent in the nation. In addition, this tournament participation allows us to showcase our West Seattle talent to college recruiters & coaches. A number of Seattle area players have been able to extend their basketball careers at the college level as a result of the exposure of this tournament.
The obvious expense of traveling creates additional challenges for all participants involved. The cost of airline tickets, lodging, meals, and van transportation amounts to $1200.00 per player for this trip. Each player accepts responsibility to raise the funds necessary to cover those expenses. The purpose of this letter is to obtain any financial assistance or scholarship that may aid in the expense of this trip. Any amount or donation will be helpful.
Please accept this letter as a request for assistance towards the trip for our Varsity Team. I would gladly answer any questions you may have about the trip. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
Or contact our West Seattle Boys Basketball Boosters President, Pierre Newsome at: 206-227-5386 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Checks should be made out to West Seattle Basketball Booster Club.
Thank you for your consideration and time in contributing to the future of this student-athlete. In addition, any of these athletes that are successful in their academic & athletic careers, not only opens their future, but the future of other West Seattle High School student-athletes.
Your business donation will be recognized in the West Seattle Herald & the Westside Weekly for supporting this fundraiser and making a difference in you community.
Please send a copy of your business card.
