Organized by: Michelle Valladares-Diaz
My brother Alex, is an extremely dedicated, committed and talented student/athlete. He is in his Senior year when his baseball career matters most for getting scholarships and for life circumstances he is not able to participate in tournaments, showcases, trainings, etc.
I see how talented and dedicated he is and how much he wants it. I also know how important this year is for him so that he can get a good education with a scholarship. So I have taken it upon myself to help raise funds so that he can work hard this year and have the opportunity that he deserves and also live out a dream.
Would you help me support him by sponsoring him. Any amount helps and will be a blessing. It is also a tax right off and we have the forms for you if you would like.
Here is a letter from Alex
My name is Alex Valladares, I’m 17 years old, a current Junior and a varsity baseball player at Cypress Bay High School. I wake up every morning at 5:30 a.m. and get to school at around 7. After eight long hours of challenging myself in rigorous courses, I go straight to the field for another three hours of practice. Even then, my day still has not ended, I arrive home at around 7 p.m. to begin my homework, not finishing until late at night. As a student athlete I have been able to find the balance between my education and my passion for baseball. After much work and dedication I have been able to accumulate a GPA of 4.4487. On the weekends I am usually volunteering in my community at places such as the Boys and Girls Club, taking an online class, or continuing to train for baseball. As a friend and teammate, I've learned the importance of collaboration and support.
And so it is with a humbled heart that I ask for your help. I am in need of a sponsor who can help me reach my goal. I aspire to obtain a scholarship for college to enhance my education and continue my career in baseball.
With the sponsorship and money funded, I will be able to hire a coach who will train and prepare me for college baseball. By finding a scholarship for baseball I will also be able to further my education in a higher-level college to study engineering. I am confident my goals are attainable.
If you find it in your heart to help me reach these goals, I will be privileged and honored to have you as my sponsor. If requested my trainer can provide you with a tax deductible form. If you have any questions please contact me at 954-864-9455 or email@example.com
Lastly, I have learned the best gift you can give someone is the gift of your own time and so I thank you for taking the time to consider helping me accomplish my dreams.
I look forward to your commitment.
P.S. I have a copy of my school records and my Official statistics from the Broward High school Baseball Network if you would like to see them.
