Last year, the Men’s Association began what was intended to be a yearly campaign to raise money for St. Catherine Laboure’s CYC athletics program through the selling of sponsorships. While our traditional fundraising efforts through events like the Trivia Night and the Golf Tournament were helping with the costs of running the programs, we decided that a sponsor program would allow us to keep up with other parishes that were running similar campaigns. So, last year we asked for businesses to be sponsors of SCL Athletics We didn’t know what to expect last year when we started the campaign. Thankfully, the generosity of the businesses in our parish was overwhelming. Ten businesses agreed to sponsor the SCL athletic program at a cost of $1,000.00 each.
The Men’s Association would like to thank the businesses that were sponsors last year. We would also encourage the members of the St. Catherine Laboure family to patronize these businesses who were so giving with their resources. The money raised last year from sponsors has been put into the landscaping and maintenance of the fields, has helped with the purchase of new volleyball uniforms, and has allowed us to take care of a long time need at St. Catherine, replacing the entire lighting system on the upper fields.
It is now that time of year again. We are asking for sponsor renewals from our existing sponsors and seeking new sponsors that can help us with the always difficult task of funding our very successful youth athletic programs. If you were a sponsor last year, we ask that you consider renewing for the 2018/2019 sports season. If you have a business that was not a sponsor last year, but would like to be a sponsor this year, please contact us.
The cost of a sponsorship is $1,000.00. For this amount, the sponsor will be acknowledged as a financial supporter of SCL Athletics for a full year. The year will last from August 2018 through August 2019 (beginning of soccer season through the end of baseball/softball season). Sponsors are acknowledged by a five foot by five foot vinyl banner which will be hung near the upper soccer/baseball/softball fields. We are working on creating a sponsor wall this year that will be against the outer wall of the gym and face toward the concession stand and field. If your business is willing to be a sponsor of SCL athletics, please send an email to <firstname.lastname@example.org>.If you know of a business that may be willing to be a sponsor, please speak to that business and forward them this email.
Let’s get behind our athletes and show them that we want to provide them with fields and uniforms that will allow them to compete at a high level.
