|SGSEF and BMA Celebrate Shelley Glover's 25th Birthday||May 2011|
Dear Friends of Shelley,
This month, on May 14th, Shelley Glover would have celebrated her twenty-fifth birthday. To honor her life and legacy, the Shelley Glover Sports Education Foundation (SGSEF) is launching an endowment drive to raise $25,000 by May 14th, 2011, kick-starting the expansion of its mission to formally include all three of Shelley's favorite sports - skiing, swimming, and soccer.
In tandem with SGSEF's campaign, we would like to provide fellow Burkies with an opportunity to make a gift to BMA's Shelley Glover Fund. Annual proceeds to the Shelley Glover Fund go toward desired training equipment for the Glover Training Center or toward young ski racers' participation in BMA's junior development programs, such as the Junior Program, December Development Camp (formerly known as Christmas Camp), and summer training camps. BMA's Shelley Glover Fund honors Shelley's life, by supporting young athletes in pursuing their passion to be competitive skiers.
If you'd like to make a gift to the Shelley Glover Fund, you may do so online by visitinghttps://www.burkemtnacademy.org/giving?rc=1 or by sending a check to:
Shelley Glover Fund
60 Alpine Lane
East Burke, VT 05832.
Whether you make a $25.00 gift to honor Shelley's 25th birthday or another amount, know that your support will make a positive difference. Please be sure to make a note on the online payment form/check that your gift supports the Shelley Glover Fund!Please know that this gift is an Annual Restricted gift and will not be counted toward BMA's Annual Fund goal. If you have not already made a gift to this year's Annual Fund, we encourage you to join your fellow classmates and make a gift!
Shelley holds a special place in the hearts of those whose lives she touched here at BMA and beyond. Whether on the ski hill, in the classroom or during free time in the dorms, her positive energy, drive to excel, and sense of humor motivated us all. The SGSEF and Burke Mountain Academy feel so blessed to keep Shelley's inspirational spirit alive through these memorial funds. Please know that your support is greatly appreciated.
On behalf of SGSEF and Rich, Carmella and Bonnie Glover with love, we thank you.
