This has been an unprecedented year of fundraising for Flywheel. Not only were we able to fully fund the entire team’s flights to Florida Winter Classic, but we were also able to dramatically decrease dues, as well as subsidize everyone’s flights to Centex. All of this support has truly helped ease the financial stress that competitive college ultimate places on our players and has allowed us to focus more of our energy towards improving our on-field skills and team chemistry. Our sponsors and donors have helped us so much this year, so we just wanted to give y’all a quick shout out!
First thank you to our sponsors, Espresso Royale, Great Openings, and BTB (whose logos you can see us sporting on our jerseys!). Not only do you provide the world with excellent burritos, coffee, and office furniture, but your partnership has helped spread the word about our team through the community. We would also like to thank Central Student Government and its Student Organization Funding Committee (SOFC). We apply weekly for grants from SOFC, and they have consistently helped us out on funding for bid fees and tournament travel.
And of course, we couldn’t forget to thank all the parents, aunts, uncles, friends, and alumni who have donated to Flywheel this year. From the over $1000 pledged through the Alumni Giving Challenge, to helping us raise over $3000 in outside donations on Giving BlueDay, to providing tournament lodging and meals, our families and friends have gone above and beyond in showing their support and love for our team. We are so grateful for everything that you have given us this season, and we hope to make you proud with our accomplishments on the field.
