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 (http://www.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.
