Pateadores Portable Practice Lights

$2,275 of $2,100 goal

Raised by 38 people in 27 months
Hello Pats families,

Know those new lights that are allowing for extended hours of practice during the shortened winter days? Apparently they were purchased out-of-pocket by Coach Mike. Since we all benefit from them, we thought it'd be a nice gesture to see if we can collectively cover them as a group.

I looked on Amazon, and with tax, they're roughly $350 each. We have four already. Coach Mike said he's thinking of adding two more. So, 6 lights total $2,100.

Since there are 5 teams in Laguna Beach, and roughly 10 kids per team, that's 50 families. I suggest a donation of $50 per player. This just gives everyone a rough estimate so that we share the donations as evenly as possible and don't rely on a few generous families to fill in gaps. 

It's been a great first year here in Laguna Beach! We've all come so far in such a short period of time. The friendships, fun, and watching our kids grow together has been priceless. 

Anything helps! Dig deep!
Thanks, and Go Pats!!!

Hello Pats families,
I just dropped off a card for Mike and am in the process of transferring all the donation funds to him.
Mike was really surprised and very gracious. I think it's a pretty amazing thing we've all done together. Thank you again for the support and for making this effortless.
Go Pats!!!!

WOW! We made it! I'm so grateful to all of you that helped me to make this happen. I can't wait to transfer these funds over to Mike on Wednesday!

Thank you Pats.

If, by the way, you still want to donate, there's extra battery packs for the lights that would make Mike's life a little easier. The money will not go unused! (and gofundme/wepay collectively charge almost 9% processing fees to our collection).

Wow!

In only a day, we've raised $1,000 of the $2,100 we are hoping to raise! I think that says a lot about our community!

If you plan to donate, please do!

FYI, gofundme charges roughly 8% processing fee, so I'm hoping to go over our goal to cover that.

Also, I didn't have an official email list. I just lifted Coach Mike's distribution list off his last email. If you see that someone on your team wasn't listed in my original email, please forward this info so they don't miss out.

Keep on donating! Go Pats!
