I would like to sincerely thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to read this letter and to thoughtfully consider becoming a proud sponsor of the South Florida Elite Basketball Organization (SFE). SFE, a member of the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU), is an academic & mentoring basketball program and we just completed our 15th successful year of conducting youth programs, providing positive alternatives for the young boys and girls involved in our organization.

South Florida Elite’s mission is to serve the youth in our South Florida community by facilitating programs designed to promote sportsmanship, morality and other valuable life lessons taught through youth basketball. Our goal is to provide superior athletic, academic & social guidance to all of the student athletes in the SFE program, especially for our at-risk youth, in an attempt to produce quality, contributing members of our community.

The youth of our society, tomorrow’s future leaders, need your support. SFE teams are comprised of student-athletes aged five to seventeen. They are making their impact felt, both in the classroom and on the court. Making a difference in a child’s life is a rewarding experience and, as adults, a responsibility we must all work together on to achieve. Our caring, disciplined approach promotes teamwork, proper training, diet, discipline and respect with the intent of instilling confidence, self esteem and leadership skills, all of which are vital life lessons.

Please help us achieve our main goal — exposure to college coaches across the country for our kids. Each time one of our teams travel out of state, the cost is approximately $5,500. This upcoming season, we plan on taking our all-star teams across the United States to play against the top competition in AAU and National Exposure events. Without your support, many of our kids might never get this kind of opportunity. In previous seasons we have been very successful in showcasing our talented teams and we anticipate this to be the best year ever! Our teams are comprised of players with an enormous amount of potential; some are already being recruited by various colleges. With your help, these student-athletes will be able to take their basketball careers to the next level and realize their own hoop dreams. This year, we are excited to have one of the top 17U boy’s teams in the state of Florida if not the nation, featuring the top players in the tri-county area. (Please visit www.sfebasketball.com to see our rosters and our impressive list of alumni who’ve gone on to play college ball)

Your support, which is a tax deduction, is very much needed and greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,
Louis Vives
