As you all know, the Santa Barbara Triathlon is a long time supporter and sponsor of the club. They need our support to help raise money for a very worthy cause. The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara inspires, encourages, and supports Santa Barbara County students in their pursuit of college, graduate, and vocational school education through financial aid advising and the granting of scholarships.
In return for your fundraising efforts Joe Coito has offered up a catered sailing tour aboard the Double Dolphin or the Land Shark if we can reach our combined fundraising goal of $7,000!
In addition there are some amazing Individual Prize Packages for the top fundraisers!
Below is a Personal Message from Joe!
Dear Santa Barbara Triathlon Club member,
No matter what events you’ve chosen to participate in this year, we hope your training is going well and that you are as excited about the upcoming season as we are. If you’re looking for a unique way to add even more meaning to your triathlon experience, we have just the answer!
As you probably know, a huge part of what makes the Santa Barbara Triathlon unique is our support for local charities. To date, with the generous help of our participants and sponsors, we’ve been able to raise more than $450,000 for dozens of nonprofit organizations. We’re emailing you today to ask for your help in supporting our 2013 Fundraising event.
We've made it incredibly easy to fundraise (and offer some amazing prizes for your efforts). As little as 15 minutes of your time can make a huge difference, and you'll start earning prizes when you raise just $125. This year's incredible prize list includes a weekend getaway to Cambria with a Wildflower Tri entry, restaurant and hotel gift certificates, amazing tri gear, one-of-a-kind excursions and much more. In addition, if your club raises a total of $7,000 or more, you’ll win your choice of either a catered sailing excursion for 40 or a tour on the Landshark, either one a perfect way to celebrate your team’s achievements.
This year we are honored to announce the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara as our primary beneficiary. The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara inspires, encourages, and supports students from our community in their educational pursuits. Each year we strive to raise $50,000 for our appointed beneficiary, and we can't do it without your generous help.
To make it as painless as possible, we've set up a personalized fundraising page for you. You'll find it by searching for your name in the "find a fundraiser to support" section at the top of this page. Use the simple tools we've provided (including cut-and-paste letters and emails) or simply send a link to your fundraising page to your friends, family and coworkers asking for their support. It's that simple.
As one of the first sponsors of the Santa Barbara Triathlon Club we are honored to continue to support your organization as a corporate sponsor and offer exclusive discounts and prizes. We also appreciate the support you’ve given us; countless volunteer hours stuffing bags (and eating pizza and drinking beer), first hand referrals to your friends and registering year after year. We understand how crazy your lives are and as endurance athletes you have even less time than most. That said, we hope you can find the energy to take on the challenge of raising money for our beneficiary this year. It makes a difference to our community and goes a long way toward securing our ability to produce this event for you each year.
Congratulations in advance for your diligent training efforts, as well as for doing your part to inspire, encourage and support the future of our community in the pursuit of their dreams.
Our staff is always available to help you with any of your fundraising efforts, so don't hesitate to call with any questions.
