Dear Friends and Family,
As most of you know, Cathie and I have spent our entire adult life as volunteers at Rodeo Austin. I am proud to have completed 30 years and Cathie has completed 25 years of volunteerism in a variety of capacities. Regardless of any titles or positions held, Cathie and I have committed ourselves to supporting the Rodeo Austin mission: “Providing Youth Education - Preserving Western Heritage”. Rodeo Austin paid in excess of $2,000,000 last year to the Youth of Texas and currently has 120 students on scholarship in twenty different Texas colleges. We are asking for your help to exceed that amount in the year to come.
Both of our boys participated in 4H/FFA and volunteered at Rodeo Austin before moving off to A&M for their college careers. These programs have taught life skills that they will rely on for the rest of their lives, such as, dedication, commitment, responsibility, sacrifice and financial record keeping. These are only a few of the teachings that Rodeo Austin brings to our youth.
One of the ways we support the mission is through special events, such as the “Shoot Out Sporting Clay Tournament”. I have agreed to Captain a team and raise funds that will directly benefit the mission. The Shoot Out is a 50-target shooting event and I intend to break all 50 targets. I would appreciate any donation that you are comfortable with to help me reach my personal goal of $5,000 and my team goal of $25,000.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
Shaun and Cathie
