[Letter from Fred “Papa” Pereira]

Dear friend of the community,

On behalf of the Waianae Boxing Club, I would like to humbly ask for your consideration to sponsor our Waianae Boxing Club. On, July 16, 2016 our Boxing Club will be sending 9 of our boxers to Indio, CA. then to Independence, MO. to compete in two World Boxing Championship tournaments. The Waianae Boxing Club has participated in these tournaments for many years however, this year we have 9 qualified outstanding boxers who will be representing Hawaii. Waianae Boxing Club is a non-profit organization whose mission is to:

• Provide youth with organized competition in a safe environment; as well as decent equipment like jump ropes for boxing, etc.

• Bring our youth closer together through common interest in sportsmanship and competition

• Instill the values of education

• Acquaint the boxers with the proper fundamentals for boxing and kickboxing

• Teach sportsmanship, discipline, and dedication

• Encourage the boxers to maintain satisfactory grades in school and to emphasize the importance of keeping a proper relationship and balance between scholastic and athletic endeavors

We are seeking sponsors who are willing to donate any dollar amount to assist in covering our teams travel expenses. We have many boxers that have never been on an airplane and this opportunity comes once in a lifetime, for the boxers to be able to box, compete on a National level and ride an airplane. Some of the boxers have only dreamed about this. As you may know coming from Waianae a lot of these children come from homes that are not in the financial situation to assist with paying for these boxers to travel and if we aren’t able to raise the funds for travel some of the boxers will not be able to participate. So we are asking if you can assist with making the dreams of our boxers become a reality by donating to our Waianae Boxing Club financially. Your consideration is greatly appreciated.

If providing sponsorship for Waianae Boxing Club is an option for you and your company, we will send you a letter with our non-profit number for your tax purposes.

I welcome any comments or questions regarding the details of your sponsorship and look forward to forming a mutually beneficial partnership.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and support of Waianae Boxing Club
