The Chicago Sirens Women’s Rugby Club has been invited to play in the 2014 Safari Sevens Tournament in Nairobi, Kenya; an extreme privilege. The Safari Sevens is Africa’s premier rugby tournament and is only open to teams that receive formal invitations and draws crowds of over 20,000 people. We are currently the only U.S. team that has been invited to play in the 2014 tournament. In addition, we are the first women’s team outside of Africa to receive an invitation to play.
Participating in the Safari Sevens will allow us to grow as athletes, as individuals and as global citizens as we represent Chicago on an international stage. We also intend to partner with a local youth organization to teach Kenyan children how to play rugby which is growing in popularity in Kenya. It is an honor to be invited to play in the Safari Sevens and we are seeking your help to actualize this wonderful opportunity.
Our team is self-funded and appreciates the generous support of our community and sponsors that allow us to develop and promote the sport of rugby among women and youth. We are currently looking for both donors and sponsors for our tour. A variety of partnership opportunities are available including but not limited to sponsoring our inaugural golf tournament and our tour uniform. No contribution is too small.
We hope you will consider supporting our team and look forward to speaking with you regarding any questions you may have. If you are interested or would like to meet with us in person, please contact us at email@example.com or visit our tour website at SirensSafari7s.webs.com.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
