Dear Sir/Madam:

  My name is Eric Fistler and for the past seven years I have been promoting and managing a shad fishing contest on the Delaware River. Last year’s contest was a great success with this year’s event promising to be even better. With the generous support of 104 sponsors and 696 contestants in 2017, we paid out $25,100 in prize money, with a grand prize of $10,000 to the angler who caught the largest shad. We also gave away a $12,000 Jet Boat sponsored by Yamaha Outboards, Yamaha G3 Boats, and Load Rite Trailers, compliments of Mayberry Marine in Port Murray N.J.

  Organizing such a project comes with costs above and beyond what a modest entry fee could cover. With the costs of insurance, web design, space and advertising along with the logistics of putting it all together, I would like to ask for your most gracious support. All entry fees and sponsorship money will be used solely for the contest, as this is a nonprofit event.

   In return, your business or company advertisement will be listed on the sponsor pages of our website which will include a direct hyperlink to your website. In addition, your name or business will be printed and advertised on our official contest t-shirt. All sponsors and contestants will receive a t-shirt at no cost.

  Please consider helping this contest grow to benefit all of us. We are moving forward to keep the reputation as “The Shad Fishing Capital of the World” intact. By inviting all to participate it can only help the local economy, big business and small. It will also bring pride to our heritage here on the Delaware. With that I would like to bring forward a plan for the four levels of sponsorship to help in this regard. The levels can be found on the attached page. 

Yours sincerely,

Eric Fistler
