Event Is Filling Up Quickly!

Dear Friends . . . We would like to bring to your attention the upcoming Mayor’s Cup, scheduled for Thursday, September 14th. If you have not committed to a sponsorship at this time, we want to let you know that this year marks a significant milestone as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of this event. This holds particular significance for First Tee – Delaware and serves as a Platinum Occasion.

We extend our sincere gratitude for your unwavering support in the past, both through your attendance and your generous sponsorships. The success of our endeavors wouldn’t have been possible without your contribution.

The Mayor’s Cup serves as a vital fundraising platform for us, enabling the expansion of our programs. From initially serving 2,600 kids and teens back in 2003, mainly within the City of Wilmington, we have now grown to benefit over 26,000 individuals across the State of Delaware and the surrounding counties in Maryland. With our current strategic plan, we aim to surpass the 30,000 marks by 2025.

We deeply value your consistent involvement for the past years. Your commitment is sincerely appreciated. If you see if fits your budget for 2023, we kindly urge you to consider the potential of becoming a Gold or Platinum Sponsor. This gesture would not only commemorate the Mayor’s Cup’s significant impact on the lives of our youth, the City of Wilmington, and the entire State of Delaware but would also signify your integral role in this endeavor.
