The fundraising campaign for the new Mission Bay jump ramp is underway and off to a solid start. As part of this fundraiser, there are some great silent auction prizes that have been donated to raise funds to help make this ramp a reality.
Please take a look at the attachment Ashleigh put together, and consider these items when planning your holiday shopping or winter vacation plans. There are items that would make a great gift, a wonderful family trip, or help you rehab from your latest skiing injury.
The weekend stay on the ski slopes of Big Bear already has a $3,000 bid on it. There are also trips to wake surf and wine taste in Northern California, take a hot air balloon ride and wine taste in Temecula, sail on San Diego Bay and enjoy drinks and appetizers at the San Diego Yacht Club, or learn to wake surf here at home on Mission Bay. There are also classes available from the Mission Bay Aquatic Center, and certificates for $250 towards the purchase of ski equipment from Pacific Slalom. Ben Harwood was able to get his company, Rehab United, to donate a sports performance and yoga package to help you prepare for a PB performance in 2016. We do have the potential to match your auction price so your money will go twice as far!
By bidding on these items, you will have the opportunity to treat yourself or a friend or family member to a great gift, while at the same time helping make a new jump ramp in Mission Bay a reality. Mission Bay is one of the very few public three event tournament sites in the country, and new ramp will help ensure we maintain this site for all water ski and wakeboard enthusiasts. This site is also the primary training site for both the SDSU and USD Water Ski teams. Your support will help our college teams develop more tournament water skiers and be able to hold collegiate events again on their home site.
Treat yourself to something nice! Buy a friend or family member a great gift! And help make the new Mission Bay jump ramp a reality. The silent auction is being extended to December 13 at midnight. Email Ashleigh Wallace with the item you are interested in and your bid to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please share this with other fellow water sports enthusiasts who you think may be interested.
