Lola_National Spanish Spelling Bee

Lola Hernández (seen at the center in the picture), a 6th grade student at Spring Harbor Middle School, recently won the Madison city-wide Spanish Spelling Bee.  She worked very hard to learn the long list of words provided for the competition and was very excited to win.  She now would like to proceed to the next level of competition, but neither our school district nor the school itself have funds allocated for this purpose nor have they identified potential sponsors.  This is an appeal to your generosity to help us cover the costs of sending out daughter Lola to the National competition.

We estimate that we would need $1,030 for our daughter to attend, $1670 for our daughter and one parent to attend, or $2170 for our daughter and both of us to attend.  Estimated expenses for our daughter include event registration, hotel stay, and air travel.   The other two estimates include, in addition to these costs, air travel for one or two adult(s), and auto rental.  

We appreciate any contribution that you can make to this fundraiser.  Any little bit of support counts.   My entire family thank you for supporting us in this effort, and pray that you receive many blessings in return for your donation.  

Thank you!

The Hernández-Mendoza Family
