CHRISTUS Swim Sponsorship

Jeff Garsee


Dear CHRISTUS Louisiana Aquatic Club family, alumni and friends,

I am reaching out to share with you an exciting plan and opportunity for the future of CHRISTUS Louisiana Aquatic Club (CLA).  A parent committee, with the support of CHRISTUS Foundation and CHRISTUS Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, want to establish Town South Swim Club as a year-round home base for our swim team.  Having this facility, in addition to the pool at the CHRISTUS Athletic Club, will give us much-needed space to train, host team events, and small swim meets.

I’ve worked closely with our CLA parent committee to strategize for our future and am humbled and honored to share their vision:

“We believe in this team and the coaching.  We agree to give our financial support, time and professional services to CHRISTUS Swim.  Would you please join with us?  We know that the personal attention our kids receive and the values they experience every day will help them achieve their personal best in the pool and in life!  We look forward to partnering with Town South knowing it’s a place our kids love to swim and that this opportunity will help us grow.”


Over the past eight years, CHRISTUS Foundation has contributed to CHRISTUS Swim, upholding their commitment to help kids stay healthy and well.  In 2019, the Foundation gifted CLA with $15,000 starting blocks at LSUS, which we’ll relocate to Town South.  The Foundation’s support continues with the purchase of custom $7800 Thermal Pool Covers, offering a vital component in operating an efficient outdoor heated pool by keeping the “heat in” when we are not in the water. 


We are off to the right start, and to fully realize our vision, there are $20,000 in additional upgrades necessary to transform Town South from a summer swim club to a fully functioning year-round swim facility, including pool heaters, gas installation, fittings for the starting blocks, and additional overhead lighting.


We need your help to finalize the next steps in this plan.  Please consider an end-of-year business and/or personal charitable donation to help CLA!  As a 501(c)(3) organization, every gift to CHRISTUS Foundation is tax-deductible and restricted for CHRISTUS Swim.    
Gifts may be made online and any questions may be directed to Amy Heron with CHRISTUS Foundation, at 318.780.4404.  Your donation can also be a tribute gift in honor of your favorite swimmer.  An acknowledgement card will be mailed to let them know a gift was made in their honor. 


Thank you for your consideration and for entrusting us with your precious children!  I am excited about the future of CHRISTUS Swim and thank you, in advance, for helping us to make these plans a reality!
