TMEC’s 1st ANNUAL CLUB WIDE KICK-A-THON FUNDraiser!
Dear TMEC Community,
As presented at the all club meeting; fundraising is a huge financial aspect for the club. As referenced in the TMEC Handbook, at the beginning of each season (short and long course), every family (no matter what group/level) are responsible for a seasonal $100.00 fundraising fee. This fee is pivotal in the financial role to the club as it aids in the standard operating costs not covered by dues and unforeseen expenses.
This year, we as a team, have a big purpose for fundraising …. WATER! Our swimmers can’t train without it.
This year, for the first time, the team has incurred the costs of paying for ALL three pools ALL year long. Our membership has grown and we need every inch of water space.
We will be doing a club wide Kick/Swim-a-thon at October 27th practices. All decks and groups will participate. Music will be playing, swimmers will be working out but every lap they swim will count towards their pledges.
Each family has a choice on how to fulfill their $100.00 seasonal fundraising obligation. 1. Solicit fundraising obligation of $100.00 via company, family or friend donations and pledges. 2. Buy out flat rate of $100.00.
Pledge Packets and information will be distributed, October 4th to all decks.
There are incentives for those who choose to rise above their $100.00 seasonal fundraising obligation.
