Jané Mia Roodt (14) from Pretoria is urgently raising funds so that she can take part in the National Championships in East London in June 2019!
As you may or may not be aware a Drum Majorette is a baton twirler whose twirling performance is often accompanied by dance, movement, or gymnastics. They are primarily associated with marching bands during parades. They do illusions, cartwheels, and flips, and sometimes twirl up to four batons at a time.
We are urgently seeking sponsors to please open their hearts and to help develop a young teenager who has discovered that her passion is being a Majorette. She is extremely proud of being a member of the Northern Stars Majorette team. She has been working extremely hard and has shown her dedication and passion for this sport in a very short time period.
This was a dream come true when she heard that she will represent Northern Stars Majorettes at SAMCA (South African Majorette and Cheerleading Association) in East London from 19 June to 27 June 2019. We could not believe that this happened as she was a “newbie” who joined the club only during January 2019.
As an “elite” sport and a private club, there are many expenses and neither I nor my daughter (who raises Jané on her own) is financially capable of funding Jané.
The limited time we have to raise an amount of R7,500.00 for the Nationals before 13 June is a major worry for us.
BREAKDOWN OF COSTS:
1. Air travel cost, accommodation and food for 10 days (19 June – 27 June 2019)
2. A list of essential items as requested by the club (see majorette supplies website below)
3. White majorette knee height boots to the amount of R650.00
4. Mace to the amount of R1200.00
5. Baton to the amount of R750.00
Sincerely, on behalf of a “drummie” who is working extremely hard to excel and follow her dream I trust that you will find it in your hearts to fund my granddaughter who is my SuperStar!
