Subject: A personal request from Chris Landry   - 

I've attached a letter for your consideration, please!

As a former "USL Basketball" Shipley "boy", this appointment as Committee "Development Chair" for the Inaugural BERYL SHIPLEY CLASSIC  as Presented by Budweiser, has a special place in my heart, especially with the passing of Coach Shipley earlier this year.

Prior to reading the attached formal letter donation request, I wanted you to know the following:

All $1000 and up sponsors will receive in addition to the advertising mentioned in the letter, invitations to the Shipley Family Private Reception at the UL President's Home and to the Former Shipley Players Social. Also, an Inaugural Beryl Shipley Classic “Red” Shirt monogrammed with your name and two tickets to all three days games. 

Should you decide to support, please send me shirt size or that of your designated person.

Also, please refer any potential donors to me for this historic event!
Thanks for your consideration.

FROM:  Christopher “Chris” Landry, Development Chair, Beryl Shipley Classic Committee
       RE: Financial Support for the Inaugural Beryl Shipley Classic, Nov. 18-20, 2011
 DATE: Oct., 2011 
In support of Coach Bob Marlin’s efforts to take the UL Lafayette Basketball Program to the former national acclaim that it once held and to that objective with full support of President Dr. Joseph Savoie and Director of Athletics Scott Farmer, there will be a four team resurrection of the Budweiser Bayou Classic, with a significant name change thanks to the leadership of UL Lafayette.  That significant change is in the naming of the event as the “Beryl Shipley Classic”.  Featured teams are; Houston Baptist, Cal State Fullerton, Nicholls State & our Ragin’ Cajuns.
As Development Chair, I want you to know that funds are being collected via donations to cover costs associated with the purchase of a "life size bronze bust" of Coach Shipley in addition to those costs incurred by, but not limited to, a Shipley family private reception, a former players/ trainers/ coaches/ invited guests “social”,  administrative costs , miscellaneous costs, etc. The bust will not be ready for the Inaugural but will be displayed at the Cajundome in the future.
My only regret is” Coach" is not here with us to finally share in the acknowledgement of his many contributions to our great university, city, state and the sport of basketball for all ages. On the other hand, I have no doubt he is right beside us in spirit cheering on this wonderful show of appreciation and support for his family members who remain behind and will be present to represent him at the "Beryl Shipley Classics"!  God Bless Coach Shipley! 
Please accept my sincerest appreciation, on behalf of the Beryl Shipley Classics Committee and Shipley family, for your financial contribution to help make this a huge success. Any amount is welcomed, but special recognition will be given to those who donate $1,000 or more.  Acknowledgements at the $1,000 or more level will be made during the three day classic event and permanently listed on the UL Athletic Network website:

 Please make check payable at your earliest convenience to:  RCAF - Beryl Shipley Classics
 Mail check to:  Christopher W. Landry, 161 White Pine Rd., Arnaudville, LA  70512
 Email your company logo and website URL to:  

Finally, we all owe a great debt of gratitude to Dr. Joseph Savoie, President of the University; Mr. Scott Farmer, Director of UL Athletics; and Coach Bob Marlin, Head Basketball Coach for making the Beryl Shipley Inaugural Classic possible!
If you have any questions, please contact me via my cell (337.319.2531) or by email at the address listed above.
