This was one of our favorite delivery's EVER! It started with a letter from a couple who have two children playing basketball at Mission Bay High School in San Diego, Ca... They wrote about the many thankless nights at the snack bar and many hours spent with fundraising attempts and with all that the girls varsity basketball team still looked like quote, "The Bad News Bears"... The letter (posted below) was exactly what we are always looking for, helping high school athletes that need it but more importantly DESERVE it. Our budget was close to $12,000 for this donation and we were able to use that to purchase brand new home and away jerseys, warm up pants, and jackets, logo'd Nike backpacks, plus an 8000 series Gun Shooting basketball machine. Congrats to Mission Bay, we hope to add One More Win to the Buc's season! WATCH THE VIDEO, we were able to suprise the girls on their first day of practice. If you would like to tell us about your high school sports program and your needs, go to the Nominate tab in the menu. Be very specific, we actually had never heard of a shooting gun until we received this letter... It is an incredible resource that will always be on our radar.... Thanks again to anyone who has donated or participated in our fund raising efforts. Here is the original letter.....
First off Thank You for all of the donations and support in 2019. We are having a busy year but are very excited for our Fall donation. We received over 40 nomination letters detailing the needs of high school athletic programs all over San Diego. We have selected a girls varsity basketball team and we will be announcing the name of that school on Oct 1s, 2019. Our 2019 golf tournament was an amazing success and we appreciate all that were involved. Our annual tournament lunch with the folks at RB INN is in November and that is when we eat some great food and lock in our date for the next years tournament. We hope you can be a part of it! Here are some of the photos of our recent tournament.
What another busy day for One More Win! This time, we visited the Boys Track & Field team at Clairemont High School. It is always a struggle to choose between different nominations, but this one really stood out to us. Their coach, Tracy Wright, wrote us a letter explaining how the team runs in mismatched uniforms during their own practices and meets! As a high school, having new uniforms can boost the slightest bit of confidence during competing.
So we decided to donate completely brand new uniforms to the team.
We threw in something a little extra as well into their donation,
brand new warm-ups! It was so amazing to see the looks on their faces when
we presented the new gear to the team. As the Spring sports die out,
Fall sports season is just around the corner! Click here to nominate
your high school this upcoming season. Congrats Clairemont!
