To: Foresters Family
From: Bill Pintard and Foresters board of directors
The Foresters have been proud to represent Santa Barbara and Goleta for more than 25 years and have brought nine national championships back from the NBC World Series in Wichita, Kansas. Each year, the organization starts almost from scratch, raising money to support the team through sponsorships, ad sales, donations, gate receipts, and more. Once again, we’re appealing to our generous fans to help make sure the team has the financial ability to return to Wichita at the beginning of August to defend our national title.
We’re asking the Foresters faithful to do again what they have done for years: Help us out. Can you donate anything to help the team make it to Wichita? It’s important that you know that all of the Hugs for Cubs activities will continue regardless of Wichita. But bringing our entire team safely to and from Kansas is a big undertaking, and in recent years, we have had to dig deep to make it.
