Dear Mr. Buffett,
My name is Courtney O'Connell, and I am a 14 year old rodeo competitor residing in Simpsonville, Kentucky. I currently compete in Barrel Racing on the IBRA circuit, and I am the 2018 Kentucky State Youth 3D Champion. I will be in the top 5 going into the National Finals in at the end of this month, and I am also currently developing a second horse for National High School Rodeo competitions. She should be ready to go on the road within us in the next 30 days.
I would like to present a formal sponsorship request to your organization(s), and give you an idea as to the potential exposure your organization(s) would have as my sponsor while I travel locally, regionally, & nationally to competitions. I have a Facebook & Instagram page with lots of followers & will use social media to promote your brand(s) as well.
Would you be so kind as to provide me with the name of the person I should address my request to?
If sponsorship opportunities are not currently available with your organization(s), donations are always accepted and very much appreciated. I have numerous expenses being on the road, as well as the need to maintain vehicles and trailers due to the extensive traveling I do.
Thank you very much for your time & I look forward to hearing from you.
