W.A. Porter Elementary’s

Fundraiser

February 16, 2016

Dear Local Businesses, Porter Families, and Friends;


W.A. Porter Elementary is a Texas Public School in the Birdville Independent School District and we are excited to kickoff our 2016 Panther Race Fundraiser. Every year W.A. Porter conducts the Porter Panther Race in which the students raise money for the school through pledges and learn how exercise can keep a body and mind strong. The 2016 Panther Race is scheduled for Friday, April 8th. This will be our BIG fundraiser for the year. We are asking local businesses to become a Panther Race Sponsor by donating $500 (Platinum Sponsor), $250 (Gold Sponsor) or $100 (Silver Sponsor) to help fund our Race.


Your donation will allow us to purchase Panther Race Shirts for every student who participates in the Panther Race and to purchase prizes for the pledge winners. In appreciation of your contribution you will receive the following benefits:

· Your business name will be placed on the Panther Race Shirts,

· Your business name will be placed on the electronic sign in front of the school,

· Your business information will be placed on our large ‘Thank You Sponsors’ board located in the school’s foyer,

· Your business name will be published in our Porter Periodical, which is distributed to over 400 families.


We would love to count on your support for our Panther Race this year, and your contribution to our organization is 100% tax-deductible. The money generated from our Panther Race will be used to help fund school field trips, to supply teachers and grade levels with updated technology, replace the laminator, repair poster machine and to landscape school grounds.


We are asking local businesses, Porter Families, and friends for help in making this year’s Panther Race a huge success. Because our Porter families live and work in this area, they are very happy to support businesses like yours and sponsorship is great publicity for your business.


We would like to have all sponsorship donations collected by March 11, 2016. You may mail your check to W. A. Porter attention: PANTHER RACE. Please make checks payable to WA Porter. You are invited to attend and cheer on the children as they run laps for pledges. We will send you our newsletter showing the success from our Panther Race and a receipt of your donation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting our Porter Family. We couldn’t do it without people like you!


For the Children,
