One Day Left!

August 25, 2016

Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for supporting our team!  Our project ends at 9am on Saturday morning, so we have one full day of fundraising left to meet our goal.  We are 93% of the way there and just need $674 more to reach our mark.

We're super excited to be so close to our final goal and hope you will help us in our final big push by again spreading our link on social media and to your fellow Longhorns.  Every gift, no matter the size, benefits our team and we are extremely grateful to our supporters!

Hook 'em,

The PetroBowl Team

Classes starting soon!

Dear PetroBowl Supporters,

The PetroBowl team members have been studying hard all summer, many while also working full-time internships. Your support not only helps the team travel to competition, but also prepares them for it as well.  With your contributions, the team is able to purchase crucial practice supplies and study materials.

When the students return for the fall semester in just three short weeks, they will begin bi-weekly practices with faculty to prepare for the quickly approaching competition in Dubai.  The team will also be gearing up for the annual faculty vs. students mock PetroBowl challenge, which is a fun treat for participants and spectators alike!

Thank you for all you have done to prepare the team!

We're almost halfway there!

July 27, 2016

Dear PetroBowl Supporters,

Thank you so much for your contribution!  We are halfway through our 30 day campaign and are just $1,054 shy of reaching $5,000, which is half of our total goal.  We know so many of you are helping to share our HornRaiser project through email and social media, which is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

In order to reach half of our fundraising goal TODAY, we kindly request your help in spreading the word about our team.  If each one of our 36 wonderful donors recruits just one additional $30 donor, then we will reach our 50% mark and be on target for Dubai!  Would you please help us once again by sharing our story with your Longhorn colleagues and friends?

We cannot thank you enough for your kind support and encouragement of the PetroBowl Team.  Your gift makes our trip possible, and we couldn't do it without you!

With sincere gratitude,

The 2016 PetroBowl Team
