On behalf of the PAF, we would like to extend and a VERY HUGE THANK YOU AND CONGRATULATIONS to all of our Fund Drive volunteers. We had a very strong team effort over the course of the last several weeks of the drive which put us in a great position to officially reach and surpass our goal for this year’s Fund Drive. Through your dedicated support and some additional assistance from our staff and community, we were able to finish this year’s Fund Drive at an impressive $74,019.93 in new cash memberships raised for the PAF.
As shared in our meeting today, the task of raising $50,000 in new PAF cash memberships could not be done without the support of our team of volunteers. Your passionate support of Pacific Athletics and the PAF combined with your willingness to commit to paying it forward has allowed us to not only meet and surpass our goal for this year, but it also allowed us to surpass last year’s Fund Drive efforts of raising $62,682 in new PAF cash memberships. Another testament to your efforts and a HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT for the overall campaign this year.
