After class last night, a few of us were talking about competing in the Pan Ams. We live on Long Island, NY. The biggest issue for all of us is the costs involved with travel, lodging, registration, etc. to make the trip to CA. I thought about trying to obtain sponsors or local businesses to donate funds to the cause.
I'm left wondering if what we're looking for is more of a handout than a sponsorship?? We're looking at soliciting the local mom and pop businesses in the community for their support rather than large commercial companies.
Anyone know of a standard form letter seeking sponsorship / donations?
Any ideas or suggestions????
