Michaela's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Trip

Hello Family and Friends,

I am so pleased to announce that I, Michaela Cooper-Thomas has been selected by USA Cheerleading to perform with the Spirit of America productions to be apart once-in-a-lifetime participation in this years 88th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City!!!

Only a select few teens in the Nation are invited to participate. United Spirit Association has selected only Seniors that are Captains on there High School Cheer team and excelled at this years cheer camp, which I attended at UC Santa Cruz. In order to participate I will need stay at the Hilton New York and attend the performance camp a few days before Thanksgiving. The program has put together a great package, which the performers are required to adhere to. The trip is scheduled over 6 days, to include a visit to the iconic Statue of Liberty, a tour of the Empire State Building, a performance by the amazing Rockettes at the famed Radio City Music Hall, and tickets to see a Broadway show!!! (and much more:)

The cost for participating,(including chaperon) with airfare is will total around $5,000. I am hoping that all of my family and friends help contribute to this wonderful cause so I can share in this once in a lifetime opportunity. Any contribution will be helpful as I must register and send the deposit by August 15, 2014 and final payment is due to Spirit of America by September 15, 2014.

Please consider supporting me in this endeavor. I am going in to her Senior year at Benicia High School. I am currently a Captain of the high school cheer team as well as being an active member and cross competitor at SWAT All-Stars Cheer and Dance. (Levels 2 and 4). I am planning to go to LSU after High School.

I want to thank you in advance for your continued support and encouragement, I look forward to hearing from you soon.
