This Wednesday night (4/28), all high school players will participate in a fundraising event for the entire club. This event is called 30 Pop and basically is a text/email campaign to our friends and family to help support the club. As you all know, WDM Lax is a non profit 501c3 organization and our cancelled season in Spring 2020 made a huge hit to our budget & reserve funds. To continue to grow our club and the sport of lacrosse in Iowa, it takes a lot of financial resources.
It is critical that every player participate in this fundraiser. Players will attend the fun event on Wednesday night (during practice) and enter the email or text of their family or friends asking for a donation. A $10 donation goes a long way to help our club! If each player gets at least a $10 donation from 10 contacts, this will be a huge success for our club!
Players & parents—please think outside of the box with names to add to the contact list. Anywhere in the world! The contact will receive a text or email telling them about our club and saying that “player name” plays for WDM lax and would love a donation for our club. They can then submit donation via credit card and that’s it. No contact information is kept or shared. **you may want to give them a heads up before Wednesday so they will know it is a legit fundraiser for our club.
This evening at practice, each player will receive a contact list that must be brought to practice COMPLETED on Wednesday night. I have also attached a copy of the list to this email. Players are welcome to bring multiple lists to the event Wednesday.
This is also a fun competition among our high schoolers! There will be prizes and fun activities to get this event rolling.
I wonder who will win, the boys team or girls team???
