Blocks for Brantley - Update

Michelle Heusel

Current & Former Swim Families:

We wanted to share a weekly update regarding our fundraiser, Blocks for Brantley.

We have decided that we will break this effort down into two phases. Our first goal is to raise enough funds to purchase and install 8 new starting blocks. We anticipate that this phase will be completed by the end of the year. We will then focus on raising funds for phase two, the second set of eight starting blocks! By making this plan a two phased approach, our donors and families will be able to start seeing the results of this fundraiser as early as Spring 2022!

After hearing some feedback, we have decided to officially offer a donation pledge program to raise funds. This will allow our future donors to commit to a donation amount, but not contribute the funds until we have reached our overall goal for phase one. Once we hit our minimum goal of $40,000 through donations and/or pledges, we will then do an all-call for donor pledges to be sent in via check. If you are interested in donating this way, please email us at [email protected] for paperwork or stop by the office to fill out a form.

We are proud to announce three new corporate sponsorships that have committed to contributing toward this effort since our last check in! A huge thank you to: Gary Yeomans Honda Dealership, Wiewiora & Dunn Orthodontics, and Spring Family Denistry for supporting Blocks for Brantley!!

Please find our current funds raised recap, additional information on how to donate, and sponsorship levels listed below. Again, we greatly appreciate everyone’s support! If you have already donated, thank you so much! We have never attempted to raise funds in this manner and at this level. Thank you for your time and contribution.
