Dear VABA Families & Greater Charlottesville Community:

My name is Pete Griffith, and I am a loyal fan, supporter, dad and coach within the VABA Family.  I am volunteering to help with the VABA Hoop Drive! - to help recruit local community sponsors to "Adopt a Hoop" for the Polar Bear Basketball League.

As you have heard, VABA's highly regarded basketball league will be played outdoors this season.  I am sure that many of you share my enthusiasm about this idea and the unique opportunity for our kids to play hoops this winter.  But, VABA needs our support more than ever during these uncertain times!

Because we will be playing on converted tennis courts, we will be utilizing portable, outdoor basketball hoops for practices and game competition.  These hoops, together with hauling fees and sand bags, cost approximately $500 each.  We need local sponsors to make this a reality. After the season ends, sponsors will have the option to keep or DONATE their hoops to our community.  

We need sixty (60) hoop sponsors @ $500 per sponsor to accomplish our “goals”.  Fortunately, we already have received a number of sponsors - but we're not there yet!   Your Company Name and/or Logo of choice will be printed and placed on the backboard of the hoop for all to see!  If you’d also like to sponsor Team Jerseys, only an additional $100 donation will cover both the jerseys and a hoop.  If a hoop sponsorship is not for you, then you can sponsor Team Jerseys for $300.  Of course, your Company Name will also be printed on the jerseys.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.  If you’re ready to make a donation, just click the link below:

If you have any questions, please feel free to reply to this email or call me, personally.
