Fundraising – We Need Your Support

February 2nd, 2013 by admin Leave a reply »

Hello Disabled Sports OC Students and Instructors!
As a quick follow up to Commander G’s earlier Message from the President, I would like to give you some additional information and share some resources to support our fundraising efforts this winter.

We are only a short time away from our annual Ski a Thon on the weekend of March 8th and 9th. This is a fun filled event and our biggest fundraiser for the year!
Throughout the winter season each year Disabled Sports OC is able to help students enjoy time on the mountain skiing and snowboarding. The students that participate in our program enjoy many benefits:

•Discounted Lodging
Value=$150/night

•Free Lift Tickets
Value= $99/Day/Adult

•Free Instruction
Value=$75 half day/$150 full day (Prices from Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra)

•Total Support per Student=Up to $825/weekend

As you can see, the savings from D.S.O.C.’s support are significant and enable many students to enjoy one of the finest ski resorts in North America.

The annual Ski a Thon is the students opportunity to give back and help us continue to support this amazing program. There are two ways students can help raise money for the Ski a Thon:

First, you can choose to raise funds through gathering pledges to sponsor you per run. Pledge sheets are available on the theachievers.org website.  Here is a link to the Pledge Sheet.   Also, to the right section of our website, you can donate directly to the group using the Paypal Donate Button.

Second, both students and instructors can send out the attached solicitation letter to potential donors, such as your Dr., family members or local businesses you frequent. The solicitation letter is attached below. This year we are setting the lofty goal of $250 per student. To reach this goal you may want to use both fundraising methods.

Your fundraising dollars will go towards many important needs of the group, such as:

•Trailer upgrades and maintenance.
•Equipment purchases-helmets, ski bindings, ski retainers, etc.
•Housing Scholarships
•Team Events-Annual Picnic and Awards Dinner

We are excited to be having such an incredible 2013 season with D.S.O.C., and with your support hope to have many more. Thank you in advance for your efforts!

Sincerely,
John Lucas
Fundraising Chair
