Dear Team Impact Parents,
I am writing this open letter in order to solicit your support with respect to selling Yuk Yuk’s tickets for our new quarterly fundraising drive.
At present we have 200 registered athletes, 100 of whom compete, many at a high level.
I think it’s important that we recognize the fact that we now have a full time on mat head coach. He has added tremendous value since starting his tenure with Impact nearly a year ago. Saeed is a National Champion, an Olympian and a valuable asset to our club.
The club is growing and in part, the financial growing pains we are experiencing are due to incurring additional costs without offsetting revenue. Private donations, while appreciated, cannot form an endless source of revenue.
While we appreciate the efforts made every year concerning LobsterFest, we now require additional fundraising to offset the cost of coaching, travel, accommodations, camps, etc. We have a staff of 20+ volunteer coaches. One of the reasons this club works so well and is so successful, is that we focus on the athletes and their development. That development takes many forms; from bringing in international level coaches and athletes from other countries to camps and clinics, to countless hours from volunteer staff. That having been said, we can only request so much monetary support from our volunteers.
As many of you know, other sports organizations place substantial fundraising burdens on their parent contingents. While we have avoided doing that for the past 40 years, we must now appeal to our parents for some assistance with this Yuk Yuk’s drive. Let’s all please dig our oars into the water and add some value where these quarterly fundraising drives are concerned.
Please call or text Jen Papadopoulus for tickets: 416 209-1244
Note: The Yuk Yuk’s tickets may be used for any of their locations in the GTA, providing a call is placed in advance.
