Support SHU Men's Basketball!
The 2018-19 school year is well underway. I wanted to take a moment to thank you. Being the Head Coach here at Sacred Heart University is a role that I take great pride in as I try to help guide our current student-athletes to be the best students, athletes and community leaders they can be while they are here. Something that is not lost on me is that our team enjoys success because of the great people that came before us. The rich tradition and history you helped forge is part of the DNA that makes SHU such a special place.
With that being said, we need your help. I’m asking you today to be part of the Team behind the Team and to consider two things that will have a tremendous impact on our men’s basketball program: first, please be present in our growing community. Feel free to reach out to me, join us at a game, connect with fellow alumni and be part of everything that is special about Sacred Heart. Secondly, please consider making a gift to support our program. In order to compete at the highest levels we need to continue to improve the experiences of our student-athletes. This includes renovations to our locker room and basketball suite, new equipment, opportunities for team building and leadership training, improved fan engagement, enhanced academic support, and enhanced recruiting budgets.
With that being said, we have set a fundraising goal of $25,000 to help us get what we need in order to be among the best in the Northeast Conference. I believe this initiative starts with me. Therefore I am committing a personal gift of $2,500. I reached out to Bill Bayno, SHU Class of 1985, and asked if he would consider matching my gift. Not only did he match my gift, he doubled it! I am grateful for his leadership and willingness to help lead our effort. We are now at $7,500 raised toward our $25,000 goal. I’m truly hoping you will give what you can to enable us to make this a reality.
Again, thank you for your generosity. I look forward to seeing many of you at a game this year. For your convenience please click here to view our schedule.
