I am reaching out to you to ask that you help us by financially supporting our efforts over the next two years to continue to provide vital protective and skill development equipment for Irish student athletes. The Irish program is a Not For Profit Organization that focuses on the development of youth Flag and Tackle football, and cheerleading. On Monday March 20th through June 30th we will be accepting your contributions through the Fund Me portal.

The goal of this campaign will be that you partner with the Irish in the purchase of:

· Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
· Portable scoreboard
· Helmets

The Irish organization is a volunteer driven operation funded completely by registration fees and other fund raising activities including concessions and spirit wear sales, Push Up contest, and solicitations to local area businesses. We pride ourselves on our strong commitment to teaching young student athletes fundamentals of the game in a safe and professional setting that prepares them for the next stage of their athletic careers. In addition to learning the game of football student athletes and cheerleaders learn key life lessons including teamwork, discipline, accountability, responsibility all while enjoying the sense of community as a member of an organized team.

I am asking that you share this solicitation with your closest family members and friends. Once we have received your contribution we will provide you with:

· The Organizations‘ EIN for tax purposes
· The option to be listed as one of our Friends & Supporters of the Irish

We greatly appreciate your financial contribution to the Irish Organization.

Thank YOU!
