It Takes a Team
Some time this week, you should receive a letter at home from TRRA encouraging you to help us reach our goal of 100% member participation in this year’s annual campaign: It Takes A Team. The letters have gone out to everyone, even those who have already made a pledge or sent in their contributions. Rich and I want to give a very special thanks to the many Paddlefish who have pledged so far: we’re halfway to our goal of 100% Pfish Participation! (Hoo-rah!, as Captain Bob would say!)
If you haven’t had a chance to send in your contribution, please take advantage of how easy it is to do so. You can contribute through the United Way at work (#9237), by sending in a check in the postage-paid envelope enclosed in the letter you received this week, or by paying online at http://www.threeriversrowing.org/AnnualCampaign_2006.htm . The focus here truly is on teamwork: it’s far more important to have 40 Paddlefish pledges to the campaign than it is to have one whopping big dollar amount. (That said, if your tax accountant is telling you that a whopping big charitable contribution would be a really good thing for you to consider, please feel free to think about writing a generous check for the annual campaign!)
The campaign ends at the end of this month, but anyone who makes a pledge by December 15th is automatically entered in the random drawing for a $100 gift certificate to be used at the TRRA Crew Shop. If you’ve already made a pledge but aren’t sure Rich and I know, please give us a heads up so we can guarantee you’ll be in the drawing!
