2024 Annual Fundraiser Letter

Aquajets Families,

It is that time of the year again in which we are kicking off our annual fundraising
campaign. This is the Aquajets primary fundraiser for the year, and we need everyone’s help in making it successful. This past year, the Aquajets were able to purchase a new lane rope reel, new backstroke flags, and are evaluating new touch pads which are nearing the end of their life.  This along with other club needs are covered completely by our fundraising campaign.

Each Aquajet family is being given a small number of businesses or individuals to
contact. Each of these businesses/individuals donated to the Aquajets in at least
one of the past two campaigns. We ask that within the next two weeks, you
and/or your swimmer physically visit the businesses and as a representative of
the Norfolk YMCA Aquajet Swim Team, ask if they would be able/interested in
supporting our local swim club.

Each business or donor will choose a level of support (Platinum, Gold, Silver, and
Bronze), and we will list the business/donor on a single page in the program,
similar to the Norfolk High School activities programs. We will also display our
donating businesses/donors on the club website. It is important to mention to
the business that the Aquajets will be hosting 3 separate home meets this upcoming

The levels of support that we have are what we will refer to as the Platinum
(+$200), Gold ($100+), Silver ($50), and Bronze ($35) levels. These can be sold to
businesses, or to individuals wishing to donate to the club. Any other level of
donation will be gladly accepted.

Important information to know:
- All checks should be made payable to “Norfolk Aquajets”
- We are not able to accept credit card payments

- Businesses can request to be billed. Please provide the appropriate billing
information when returning the index cards
- Campaign funds can be mailed directly to Kent Olberding, 208 Harris Drive,
Norfolk, NE 68701

As an incentive, all families who are able to complete their campaign packets and
have them returned to the coordinator, will be entered into a drawing to receive
one of four businesses that have contributed to the fundraising campaign. Gift
card increments will be $25, $15, $10, and $5. In addition, for every NEW
business that you are able to collect a donation from, your name will be added to
the drawing an extra time.

The coordinator of this campaign is Amber Bargstadt. If you have any questions
or concerns, please contact Amber (402) 297-1713.
Also, a list of the businesses and the family that we be contacting the business is
listed on the club website. If there is a particular business not on the list, please feel free to take the opportunity to contact the business.
