805 Family Website Donation

Dear 805 Alumni & Families,

I hope this message finds all doing well. It's been a long time coming, but I'm finally reaching out to our 805 Alumni and family. After 22 years the 805 Family is still running strong and serving the youth of Santa Barbara & Ventura counties. Primarily based out of Ventura, the program trains & mentor’s female student athletes from middle school to high school level. Our program has been the longest running club program on the central coast, with a tradition that was paved by so many great players that it's too many to mention. We have sent players to Div.1, 2,3 NAIA, and Junior College schools that stem from Westmont, UCSB, Gonzaga, Washington & University of Hawaii.

       Having built so many amazing relationships throughout the years, its afforded me the opportunity to do what I love and give back to the community. Today, I'm reaching out to all to ask for a sponsorship contribution. We are trying to create our first professional 805 website through Sports Engine. Our goal is to raise $2000.00 so any donation you feel led to give would be greatly appreciative. We have just partnered with Blue Star Media and become a Blue Star Travel team that now allows us to play on a national stage & platform in the NCAA viewing recruiting tournaments. With advancing the program to this next level this website allows the opportunity for the girls to be followed, the program to grow and touch many more coaches and future families. I have always said it takes a village to raise a child, and I hoping that we can help the next generation enjoy the special 805 experiences.

All donations are tax deductible  & would be greatly appreciated.
