My name is Barbara Kelly Vessa and I am a parent of a Vandy Lax freshman.  My son has had a great time playing club
lax this season and I have enjoyed watching games from my home in Manhasset, New York.  I am grateful to Coach Tyler
for all the time and effort he has devoted to the boys.  

I'm reaching out to you as fellow Vandy Lax parents to see if you would like to join me in forming a "Friends of Vanderbilt
Men's Lacrosse" committee.  Our objective would be to assist the team (that is, the boys) in fundraising to meet the costs
of running the team.  Currently, the team is running a deficit of $7,000 for the year.  I am hopeful that we can work with
the boys to throw a small fundraising event in the fall during Family Weekend at Vanderbilt.  The administration seems
quite supportive at this time, but as they say, "many hands make light work."

If we could create the "Friends" Committee of three or four parents, I am hopeful that we can help the boys and ensure
the future schedule of the Vanderbilt Men's Lacrosse Club.  I welcome your emails and/or phone calls.  In the meantime,
if you wish to make a contribution to support the team, please see below.  Please feel free to forward this email to other
"friends" if you think they may be interested.

Thank you so much for your interest!  I look forward to hearing from you.
