“Join Mayor Wildes in a community effort that will

help advertise your business.”




I hope you will join me in my efforts to encourage and influence the younger generation of Englewood . We need to motivate the energy of our youth! Recreation in Englewood fosters cooperation and camaraderie amongst the youth of our great city. With the completion of a much needed Recreation Center still years away, I write this letter so that we may join in some preliminary steps.


I have been involved with the Uptown Sports Foundation, an organization which addresses the recreational and social needs of the youth of our City. The Sports Foundation established a basketball league in 2001 and will be entering its 5 th year as an organized league.


Supported solely through private sponsors, the 2005 Uptown Sports Foundation summer league program will begin on Saturday, July 9 th , 2005 at McKay Park and will last for 9 consecutive weekends. Uptown Basketball games are strongly represented and the program has been recognized as a highly anticipated weekly social event for the summer, with the participation of citywide teams from surrounding communities.


As the Mayor of Englewood, I invite, encourage, and welcome you to commit your generous support to this league. If you would like to participate, to advertise your business, or to sponsor a team for the 2005 Uptown Basketball League season through a monetary contribution, please complete the bottom portion of this letter and return it to me at the address shown above.


Feel free to contact my office at (201) 569-7891 if you have any questions.
