A Fundraiser for TATE's B-Ball Team

Tate Wilkinson is the Assistant Basketball Coach in Austin, Texas.  This Austin Achieve is an amazing school with some fantastic results. It serves an "underserved" community with kids who little to no funding for personal items such as basketball shoes, athletic socks and extra items come to the gym and the game.  Some of these kids have worries and special circumstances that no kid should have to handle.  
David  Wilkinson ( My brother, Tate's dad!) mentioned the heart of these kids, but how they needed some things.  He laughed that the other teams walked in with their new shoes, all matching and gym bags and these kids just pulled it together to get on the court but they hit that floor and give it all they have.   Katelyn ( Tate's special Lady) mentioned that Tate loves these kids and would buy them all new shoes and socks but just does not have the funds.
$5,500.00 Will  buy 14 new pairs of shoes at $120.00 each.  Tylers!
14 bags of new athletic socks at $15.00 each.
14 Purple Jerseys.  14 White Jerseys.  at $42.95 Each.  Apparently you need both!
14 purple shorts.  14 white shorts. at $42.95 Each.  They need both.
14 White/purple Reversible Tanks?  At $29.95
14.Player TEEs?  $34.95 Each.  

What I have learned from working with "AT RISK" and "inner-City" Kids is that a little support, a new pair of shoes and a something that brings a little honor and pride goes with them a lifetime. 

I hope that you will help me raise this money for these precious boys.  We cannot clothe them all but let's clothe 14 boys who are making their grades, rarely absent and are working so hard to grab hold of all this life offers.  Every dollar will go to this effort, I promise. 

Thanks in advance for helping me do something worthy for a great group of kids.  You  are appreciated.  Love, Kay
