Dear friends and family,
As most of you know Angie and I are the proud parents of two wonderful children, Morgan, 11 and Ethan,6, that keep us very active and healthy. BUT, tragedy and illness fall upon the parents of many families and the children are the ones that suffer in silence.
I am proud to participate in the No Worries Classic Sporting Clay Shoot event this year to raise money to support the children of families that have experienced an illness or tragedy. Since it began in 2008, the event has raised over $2 million for Wonders & Worries and is the largest sporting clay shoot fundraiser in the country that does not have an auction.
Wonders & Worries provides professional support for children through a parent's illness and the largest fundraiser of the year is the No Worries Classic. This year, 100 shooters will come together for the 10th anniversary of the event on Friday, October 20, 2017 to do their best to hit 60 clays and raise money for this great cause. I invite you to join me and invest in the mission of Wonders & Worries this year.
It is not widely known, but Wonders & Worries is 100% privately funded. We have been fortunate we have not had to turn anyone away...yet, but we are stretching the limits of our services and as Austin continues to grow, so will the need for more of our services.
You can make a single donation, or you can make a “pledge per clay” (at $5, $10, or any amount) so the more clays I hit, the more money I raise! Whether you make a single gift now or a pledge to be paid on October 21st, you will be helping kids right here in Austin.
In addition to your donation, I would make one more humble request. While I have a large circle of family and friends, that list can grow exponentially should you feel compelled to forward this on to those you know who might be interested in supporting Wonders & Worries. Even if you only pass it on to one more person, the opportunity for our success will benefit greatly and will increase the awareness about this critical organization in our community.
It is the only time I have asked for you support and I know you will help me out in this worthy cause.
Thank you, in advance.
