Let me begin by saying thank you! Thank you for making Hoyas Unlimited the most successful component of the Annual Fund. We have once again eclipsed last year's fundraising mark, and we have begun the current fiscal year with a bright outlook and some exciting new initiatives.
Your gifts this year supported critical areas such as student athlete welfare and leadership development, scholarships and facility improvements. Additionally, your gifts in action provided equipment and travel dollars used to improve the student-athlete experience.
We are excited to announce Hoyas Unlimited's new and improved online presence, including our newly revamped website on GUHOYAS.com, Facebook and Twitter. We will be using these mediums to communicate more regularly with you. We have already begun production of video testimonials from players and coaches intended to help you see the immediate impact of your gifts at work. We also developed a
new benefits package to include priority Men's Basketball ticket seating for all gifts made to Hoyas Unlimited through your support club or to the new Georgetown Athletics Excellence Fund.
As we make our plans for FY 2010 please remember that we are counting on your continued support. I look forward to seeing you soon and, as always, thank you for your continued efforts to support Georgetown.
Very Truly Yours,
Peter J. Farrell C'82, Lacrosse
