Last week I presented my fundraiser to the Grosse Pointe Gators board of directors, and they approved of it! They thought it was a great idea and are very excited to see what I'm capable of. They agreed to provide help in the areas where I requested it, but made it very clear that the majority of the responsibilities would be mine. They also said that the event must take place early in May, which is a little bit earlier than I anticipated. Now that my idea has been approved, I can start working and preparing for the fundraiser. In my opinion, my most difficult task will be be getting sponsorship's. In order to raise maximum funds, I thought it would be a great idea to reach out to local companies and ask for donations. The Gators have a long list of sponsors from past meets, and I will take a look at that list and decide which ones to contact. I've got a lot to do and a limited amount of time, so these next few weeks are really going to have me busy.
