Hi, my name is Samantha Tomaschko and I have been selected to participate in the Italy Select Tour 2014 with the American International Sports Teams (AIST). Players from the USA will join together to compete internationally over the course of 12 days. This experience will give me the opportunity to explore a new culture while also learning valuable life lessons through personal experiences. This trip will not only allow me to play basketball, but to visit exotic cities. I will be able to visit Rome, Florence, San Marino, Venice, Milan and Como. I will also be able to improve my skills on the field of play as well as having a better understanding of the world around me.
This honor was given to me because of my success on the basketball court. I have the opportunity to represent the USA and gain an educational experience of a lifetime. I will have the chance to meet people from all around the world and establish lasting friendships with them.
In order for this trip to be a success I have to raise $3400 to cover my portion of the team’s expenses. Any donation you can give would go directly towards these expenses. This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to participate in a sport against international competition.
Thank you for your support.
