Hey you know that ice rink at the San Mateo Bridgepointe Shopping Center? That rink is open thanks to the efforts of a small group of local community leaders including the Silicon Valley Ice Skating Association (501c3). As of 2015, 2 rinks had closed their doors, and a third was on its way to shutting down. As of 2019, the San Mateo Bridgepointe Ice Rink reopened, and we are on our way to opening a new rink to replace Belmont Iceland as well. SVISA has the continued support of over 1,000 members, and is continuing to grow every day!
Ice sports are not only part of our local San Mateo community history through the reopening of the Bridgepointe rink (link) but also a huge part of the lifecycle of supporting careers of our tech workers. According to the Women’s Sports Foundation, teens who are actively involved in athletics are more likely to be successful (link). In order to support the full lifecycle of women, this is a great place to invest in our local community.
The Silicon Valley Ice Skating Association is holding the annual SVISA Fundraising Gala for 2020. The fundraiser will help keep local ice rinks alive and support sports programs for local teens. The grand event will be an elegant evening attended by many prominent people from around our community.
As a good neighbor, we hope you are able to support the dinner as a sponsor. We know you consistently do an excellent job establishing your brand and this will be a great chance to associate your brand with goodwill around the community, especially with youth. We hope we can count on your support as a sponsor.
We would love to discuss this with you further and are happy to answer emails directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
