Gene Johnson & Judy Rose message

[COLOR=DarkGreen]We hope you are doing well. Thank you very much for being part of our volunteer sales force team to help make football a reality at UNC Charlotte.

We have reached the half-way point of this very important grass roots effort. We currently stand at 2,273 FSLs sold, and your efforts have resulted in 725 sales equating to $918,500 in committed support to football. During the next month, we hope that you will work even harder to close any sales you may have pending.

In addition to the work you have been doing, we have also been targeting a few key constituent groups. Through collaboration with the Charlotte Chamber, we have reached out to their membership base of 4,000. We have also continued to reach out to our alumni base and just recently sent a testimonial video to over 43,000 alums. You can see that video by clicking on the following link http://www.charlotte49erfootball.com/testimonial.html.

While we have been working extremely hard on the FSL sales effort, we recently announced the selection of Jenkins-Peer and the DLR Group as the architectural group to design a football field house, permanent stadium and a temporary stadium site at the Irwin Belk Track and Field Center. This is the most concrete step taken to date to bring football to our campus and should help you in your sales efforts. Many of our prospects have said they want to see such concrete evidence that we are on track before they will commit to purchase FSLs.

In addition, we have had on-going discussions with potential prospects for major capital gifts and can tell you that we are making significant progress on that front as well. Football will be a reality at UNC Charlotte and the stadium will only have a limited number of seats. Remind your prospects that the purchase of FSL will guarantee them a seat in the stadium.

This is a critical time as we approach the Board of Trustees meeting on September 17. We have made significant progress, but we still have much work to do. It is extremely important that we demonstrate to the Trustees that we can close the financial gap so they will commit to begin play in 2013. There are many people who believe we will have to delay the start of the program because of the difficult financial environment, but with your enthusiastic response, we will succeed.

Thank you very much for your time and effort and all you do for our university. Let’s make this happen. We are all part of a very special movement that will change the life of UNC Charlotte forever.

Go 49ers!

Gene Johnson and Judy Rose[/COLOR][/QUOTE]that’s all we needed to hear.

That may be enough for me to go ahead get two more FSLs.

Have all of the leaders in the push for FSL’s actually purchased FSL’s?

I think it is important to lead by example, not just talk about it.

The new payment plan is a great idea.

I endorse this message!:49ers:

Good deal on construction materials too!

This message should help to solidify the confidence of some prospective fsl buyers along with our alumni base and potential corporate sponsors. People need to hear this.

great read right there. made my day better!

Lowe’s is a great idea for a key sponsor/donor. We could also make a commitment that in return for their donation, the university could work out an exclusive contract with them to supply building materials for the project. Mutually beneficial.

[QUOTE=77grad;426708]…the university could work out an exclusive contract with them to supply building materials for the project.[/QUOTE]

Probably against state law, but I’m ok with it.

They may be looking for a sponsorship cheaper than the speedway. And I think it is the CFO or CEO is a Charlotte alumnus.

3 of the top 4 at Lowes are Charlotte grads actually, including the CEO…:shades:

You wouldn’t be getting a large amount of materials from Lowe’s for a project of that scale. Lowe’s is for home improvement afterall and pretty exclusive to the residential market.

That Lowes logo would make a good ‘crown’ for any scoreboard.
