Where to start ;)..A buddy of mine in SoCal hosted and organized this event and had a blast. He gave me a contact at Wake The World and he has emailed me back and would love to bring WTW to Arizona. Waketheworld.org is the site, So this is what he had to say to me in email:
I am very excited about the possibility of Wake The World in Arizona.
Thanks so much for wanting to make a difference in the lives of others. I am sending you a package of info on how to organize an event. Start with the “Welcome to Wake the World” file. The excel files are what I use to organize, feel free to blank them out and use the template.
I have a bunch of attachments and things ill be organizing to bring this event in August..But ill need help from anyone who wants to be part of this. Ill need boats/owners and as well as others..for every boat we can bring on 3-4 children.
my number is [masked] and my email is [masked] to get ahold of me and let me know..also there is forms i need to send out to boat owners too. Its a saftey online form. Its so WTW can insurance every kid with a 25k for medical and a get a 2 million worth of insurance just in case somethings happens. Ok time to explain what WTW is all about.
1st alittle about WTW! Wake the World is a non profit charitable organization that provides watersports oppurtuinities to local Children's homes. Whether it's wakeboarding , wake surfing, kneeboarding, water skiing, tubing, swimming or just hanging out in a boat, that's what we are providing for these kids that normally would not have the oppurtunity. Our events are possible because of big hearted supporters.
Currently 100% of all funds donated are used for expenses directly related to our events. We have no paid staff, everyone is a volunteer. We use office space from my business to manage WTW, so there are no office expenses.
Without the generous support of boat owners and sponsors it would cost $105 per child. But, because all of the boats, gas and alot of the food is donated, it costs about $25 to send a child for the day. Our additional expenses include: insurance, T shirts for participants and volunteers, food, soft drinks, porta johns, goody bags and door prizes.
Also My contact and I are going to bring some pro riders in as well. Plus we will be getting some media attention involved once I have a date and some paperwork sent back to him. Of course he is taking care of all that for me hehe.
thanks again. this is going to be a great day and as well as give something back.
