FOGG Open Letter – April 24, 2012

SUPPORT FOGG’S SUMMER KIDS CAMP SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

FOGG needs your help now in raising additional funds to send as many youngsters as we can to the Golden Gateway Tennis & Swim Club’s Summer Kids Camp.  We thank those who have already made a contribution this year for the Program.

It really is an exceptional opportunity for kids from low income housing to participate in this one of a kind Summer Fun Program with dedicated and trained Camp counselors.  (Many are graduates of the Kids Camp.)

You can really make a difference in FOGG’s 3rd year of sponsoring this exciting program of tennis and swim lessons, social interaction, and many other activities with their peers in a safe, family friendly environment.

The day long program including lunch and a family barbecue on Friday’s is really an exciting experience for these youngsters who would otherwise not have this summer opportunity.

Our District Three Supervisor & Board President, David Chiu, heartily endorses our efforts.  We thank Supervisor Chiu for his statement of support in his April 2012 Newsletter.

Summer Recreation Scholarships We are pleased to spread the word that for the 3rd year in a row, Friends of Golden Gateway (FOGG) will sponsor a scholarship program to send young people from low-income housing in Chinatown and South of Market to the Golden Gateway Tennis & Swim Club’s summer Kids Camp that begins in June and lasts through August. Over the last two years, through the generosity of FOGG supporters and the cooperation of GGT&SC management, over two dozen young people enjoyed a wonderful summer experience. Donations to the scholarship program are tax deductible. For further information contact Lee Radner at coaches@fogg.us.

Please send your tax deductible donation to Friends of Golden Gateway, P.O. Box 2294, San Francisco, CA 94126.  Please make your checks out to PDF/FOGG, and on the memo line write “Kids Camp 2012 tax deductible donation”.

Or you can donate online by clicking on the ‘Donations to FOGG link on this website.

We look forward to your help.  Our neighborhood youngsters will be ever grateful.
