Sponsorship Continues Working Towards New Goals!
Hi there! My name is Hannah Esrock and I am one of our sponsorship coordinators this year. As a senior, it is now my third year on the board. I have seen all the ins and outs of what it takes to make a successful year of fundraising for the clinic, but I have never had such a taxing position on the board! Every day Jake and I are making phone calls and sending emails. It’s a full-time job trying to raise over $600,000!
With that being said, it has been an incredibly rewarding position so far! It is an awesome feeling knowing our effort aides the total we will hold up at the end of the marathon so much. While we hear hundreds of no’s throughout our effort, it makes the yes’s we get to hear so much sweeter. For example, we have started a new partnership with UPS this year where we hope to have a “night shift” themed hour thanks to their generous donation. We also have prospects with Churchill Downs and Bluegrass Cellular… stay tuned for next month’s newsletter!
We could always use your help! If you happen to have a connection through your job or through friends, please don’t hesitate to send Jake and I an email. No idea is too silly, no amount is too little! For example, we are really trying to up our incentive game this year for dancers. We are hoping to offer neat things like Churchill Downs box seats or concert tickets to the first person to raise $500 or to raise $100 while at the marathon etc. We think this could be a very easy thing for our wonderful alumni to help out with. Thanks for staying FTK, thanks for reading, now get back to work!
