Boys & Girls Club Fund?


Maybe this has been discussed already and I missed it. I was wondering what the status of the fund is. As I recall, someone was going to try to do the necessary paperwork to give the fund a tax-exempt status. Has that been done? Secondly, now that Floyd Little is the "Special Assistant to the Athletic Director....for EVERYTHING," why not at least try to get him involved in some way. Sure, I know he was brought in to convince alums to donate large sums of money but...Im pretty sure our fund falls under "EVERTHING." Of course, approaching him wouldnt be a good idea until we have all of our ducks in order, so to speak.

Plus, I have a couple of ideas: In order to maximize contributions, we should at least attempt to try to get someone to lend their name for the fund. The 'TNIAAM Kids Fund' (or whatever it may be offically called) is fine and dandy. But what if we could get a Syracuse business leader or even a former player like McNabb to support it with an annual contribution of $5K (or whatever amount). In lieu of the annual gift, the fund will be named after them. This is why the tax-exempt status would be important.

And, has anyone attempted to reach out to Holyshirt.com? Maybe we could get them to partner with the fund and sell us shirts at wholesale prices? Just a thought. Speaking of those shirts: Remember Bob Knight's Texas Tech sweater that he wore during the games? Remember all of those company logos? Maybe we could follow that example and get some local businesses to support us...and then they can buy advertising space on the t-shirts. We'll make the kids look like they're wearing NASCAR outfits. Who cares. So long as the companies aren't advertising smoke-less tobacco products or booze, it's a non-issue. And as long as their money is helping kids take in a football game, its a win-win for all involved.

So...what do you think?
