HELP FIND SPONSORSHIPS FOR THE 2016 PEIRCE WALK-A-THON

Call for sponsorships for the 2016 Peirce Walk-a-thon

Hello Friends of Peirce Supporters!


On Friday, May 13, 2016, Friends of Peirce (FOP) will host our annual walk-a-thon and sport day at the school to teach our students about the importance of exercise while raising much needed money for our school.


All Peirce students participate in this event and are encouraged to obtain pledges to help raise money for their school. The funds raised at this event will go directly to support our growing athletics programs, educational student field trips and stipends for otherwise teacher-funded classroom supplies. As you can expect, Peirce counts on this event and others like it to provide these resources to our students.


To augment this fundraising effort, we are making a concerted effort to partner with our community businesses to help Peirce continue to be a leading school in Chicago.

We are requesting sponsorships in the amount of $275 for placement of a company logo on the back of T-shirts provided to event participants. If you have contacts with local businesses, please discuss this opportunity to support their local public school.


Please contact me for more information, questions, or sponsorship opportunities.

Sincerely,

Manini Rao
