Dear Friends of United,
Greetings! The United Management Association (UMA), is hosting a VIP Reception, Casino Night and Executive Challenge Golf Tournament to support the United Scholarship Fund. Once again we seek your tax-deductible sponsorship for either or both events. And of course, we hope to see you there!
The VIP Reception & Casino Night is on the evening of Saturday, September 15th at the Chicago O’Hare International Airport hangar. This event is hosted by our President & CEO Jeff Smisek along with our United officers. To preserve the unique setting of the exclusive VIP event, certain sponsorship levels may be limited.
You are also welcome to sponsor the 7th Annual Executive Challenge Golf Tournament at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club the afternoon of Friday, September 14th. The golf tournament will be held on two courses, one of which will be Dubsdread which is ranked in the top 100 courses in the US by Golf Magazine and Golf Digest. Invitation to play on Dubsdread will be based on the total sponsorship of both Casino Night and the Golf Challenge. A pre-golf lunch and the reception that follows, offers you the opportunity to network with senior executives from United. Golf sponsorships are limited and sell out very early, so I encourage you to reserve your space as soon as possible.
Sponsorships of these events benefit the United Scholarship Fund, a 501(c)(3) [tax id: 76-0691086] organization that awards educational scholarships to United employees and/or their eligible dependents. To date, this annual event has raised several million dollars in scholarships. Originally established at Continental Airlines in 1990, the new UMA’s mission is to increase knowledge and professional development, as well as cultivate networking and camaraderie within our newly merged airline. UMA membership consists of all levels of management employees companywide, including all United officers who are involved with the efforts and vision of UMA.
This year we’ll be utilizing this online registration site on Events.org to collect your sponsorship information as some events conducted at the O’Hare airport have security requirements. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Casino Night chairperson Joni Teragawachi (872-825-5580) or via email firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about the Executive Challenge Golf Tournament, contact co-chairperson Gerald Epperly at 312-997-8607 / Gerald.Epperly@united.com or Russ Compa at 872-825-2241 / Russ.Compa@united.com.
On behalf of my colleagues at United, thank you in advance for your support. We look forward to seeing you at the VIP Reception, Casino Night and the Executive Golf Challenge!
VP, Operations Planning & UMA President
