Dear Potential Sponsor,

We are writing to you on behalf of the Housing Authority of Travis County (HATC) and its affiliate, the HATC Foundation, regarding a unique sponsorship opportunity for your organization. The HATC Foundation is organizing its 2nd Annual Deck the Halls 5K Fun Run & Walk on December 15, 2019 in the city of Austin, TX. Our 5K will be held in conjunction with the 41st Annual Decker Challenge Half Marathon and is expected to attract over 1,500 participants composed of community members, city officials, and other businesses throughout Travis County and we hope it to be an enormous success.

HATC is a government housing assistance agency primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Housing Authority of Travis County was established in 1975 and has been providing housing assistance and supportive services to low-income families in Travis County for nearly

44 years. In December 2017, HATC created a 501©3 nonprofit subsidiary, the HATC Foundation, to further its vision to develop vibrant communities which enhance and improve lives through the delivery of optimal programming and supportive services to all HATC residents and clients.

Our 5K is one of our major efforts and is intended to raise funds to empower and support all HATC residents and clients interested in pursuing a higher education, vocational training, and/or skill building opportunities with the ultimate goal of helping them become more self-sufficient. Through this effort, we would also like to bring awareness to the need for affordable housing and supportive services for low-income families in Travis County as it an increasing challenge that plagues our community.

Four different levels of sponsorship can be considered by your organization; however, if an exclusive sponsorship plan or a different increment of financial donation is preferred, then that will be gratefully received as well. Enclosed is a more detailed description of the sponsorship levels.

Your organization/business logo or name will be printed on the official race t-shirt as well as all other promotional material depending on the chosen sponsorship plan. We will also provide a link to your website along with your logo on the event page of our HATC website. There are additional sponsorship benefits that may be used to drive traffic to your business after the event, such as distributing flyers or brochures along with any giveaways related to your business to participants the day of the race.

We would be more than happy to provide more information if needed. Please feel free to visit www.thehatcfoundation.org, call us at (512) 854-6201 or e-mail us at
