Dear Mr Miller and Board members
Proposal for sponsorship of Merrylands Rugby Union Club Inc
I am writing to you to invite your organisation to assist Merrylands Rugby Union Club Inc by way of sponsorship for 2011.
As you may be aware, we are the only club in the Holroyd district to offer the opportunity for players of all ages and both sexes to play the great game of Rugby Union.
You would be aware that we have been fielding junior teams playing in the Parramatta area from ages under 6 to under 17 for almost 50 years as well as senior teams playing in the Sydney Suburban rugby competition for almost 40 years. Last year we fielded a team in the Sydney Women’s competition and this year will be fielding a senior and under 16 female team in competitions around Sydney.
Our junior club has produced it’s share of international players such as Tatafu Polota-Nau who is a current Waratah and Wallaby as well as past players, Andrew Leeds and Michael Martin.
As you would appreciate, the costs associated with this providing the opportunity for children and adults to play rugby are many and varied and without the support of organisations as sponsors, we would not survive. Some of the costs we face each year is the supply of on field gear, associated support material such as strapping tape, training gear and medical supplies as well as insurance for teams.
We have had a long relationship with your organisation as we have regularly held functions at your Club over the years and they have been very successful. The most memorable function was a fund raising function in 2004 in which Peter Fitsimons, the newspaper columnist and ex Wallaby player was the guest of honour. That night was one of the most successful fund raising nights in our Clubs history.
We also held our 40th Anniversary Dinner in the function...
