My name is Jacob Sylvia, and I am an athlete at Pineville High School.  I have been invited to participate in the Hawaii Tiki Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii from December 18-24, 2018.   Each of the teams in this event is coached by a college coach. 

I've been invited to participate in this event by local officials of the Hawaii Tiki Bowl Committee.  I consider it an honor to have the opportunity to represent my school and community in this event. 

I will be given the opportunity to interact with players from all across the USA.  My teammates and I will also be learning the culture of the Hawaiian people.

In order to participate in this once in a lifetime event, I need your help.  I am requesting sponsorship/donations from individuals and businesses to help defray the costs of this trip.  The trip cost is $2995.  Of course I am not asking for the entire amount, but I am asking that you consider a generous donation. 

Please feel free to contact me if you should have further questions.  I will be glad to come to talk with you in person regarding this experience. 

I want to thank you in advance for our help in this life changing event.
