I am writing this letter on behalf of the nonprofit Washington Park/ Rochelle High School Alumni Association, Inc. The Alumni Association was formed in 1993 by visionary community leaders who understood the value of a college education and the need to invest in the future of our children. The primary goal is to provide scholarships for deserving high school seniors who reside within the Lakeland Community. The Alumni Association is firmly committed to its mission of supporting Education for a Better Tomorrow. We are humbly requesting your sponsorship support. Our association is strictly volunteer driven and 100% of your sponsorship dollars are spent on scholarships.
We are hosting our Twenty-Seventh Annual Scholarship banquet on Saturday June 13, 2020 at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida. Last year’s event was hugely successful and was attended by nearly four hundred alumni and friends. The speaker for our 2020 scholarship banquet is one of our 2015 scholarship recipients, Ms. Bryanna Pope, Polk County School Board Educator.
Over the past twenty-six years, at this annual event, the Association has provided 116 scholarships in the amount of $174,250. The number and dollar amount of the awards has steadily increased over these years. Last year, the association provided $22,000 in scholarships to eleven worthy students and we intend to exceed that amount in 2020.
We would be most appreciative of your support in helping us attain this goal . As a corporate sponsor, you will assist us in strengthening our community by financially investing in our youth, many of whom will become tomorrows leaders. The attached information sheet provides the cost and benefits of eeach of the preferred sponsorship levels.
Contact me at 863 640-5494 should you have any questions or comments. It would be a privilege to further discuss your participation in this impactful and rewarding opportunity to give back to our community and to provide our youth with life-changing support.
We are thanking you in advance for your consideration and generosity.
Beverly Brooks Boatwright, President
