Brianna Majot and Kayla Gleason have been invited to play in the 25th Down Under Sports Tournaments hosted on the Gold Coast of Australia this summer. 

Both girls attend Couderport High School and are members of the Girls Varsity Vollyball Team and the Varsity Softball Team. They will be participating in this international event on the North Central Conference
Team in Volleyball during the summer of 2013. They are looking forward to be able to represent not only their community and state, but also their country. 

They are looking for sponsors in their neighborhoods and
community to help make all this possible.

7:37, just a thought here, but you should have used your business name, I'm sure you would have drummed up lots more business with your comment.....NOT!!!!

I'm sure before you had a business you were one of the first persons looking for a handout, also willing to bet you would do the same thing these people are for there children. Wish I knew what your business was, because I guarantee it would be the last time I went there

Everyone should lay off 7:37, he, or she, is right. Local businesses get hit up for this stuff way too much. Most owners are just trying to get by in a small town just like the rest of us. The two comments are exactly the problem. Small business owners are EXPECTED to give, or frowned upon. Thats crap. Its hard enough in a small town to keep the doors open.

Well said 6:36. I am a business owner and have also had children that needed to fund raise so I know what each side is like. My business gets hit hard for requests of donations and you can't do it all. I am sure everyone's cause is an extremely important one but it can be very costly for a small town business. In over the past several years I have been approached by 7 people that wanted sponsorship to go to the down under sports. Doing the chicken bbque is a great idea - that gets more of the public involved and also the breakfast at Kaytees - great idea. This spreads around the requests to more people than the businesses. We are just easy targets. Until you own a business you will never really understand what we go through.

As a small business owner in coudy I also get hit up probably 2 times a month. I don't have a problem helping the student out if I see they have set forth some effort to try and raise moneys rather then just want a hand out of money. I'm all about seeing kids explore and learn more.

Who said anything about a Chinese auction?

I think this is a great opportunity for the young children, if you can give, give, if you cannot afford to give, you simply & politely tell them no you just cannot afford it at this time, you have already given enough, it is that simple!! My belief is when you give it always comes back as a blessing when your helping someone!

nine times out of ten if you complain about giving, you have never gave anything anyways. I give a big hand to kayees for giving and helping out these girls achieve there dreams. as for the other whinning so called business people put out a sign no soliciting and see how long you remain a business...
