Dear Friend:

As proud UH Cougars, we are hoping you can support students pursuing a career in the Communication field by helping them receive the funds they need to complete their studies at the University of Houston.

The Valenti School of Communication Alumni Association  will hold its  Tenth Annual Fishing Tournament – The UH Cougar Saltwater Open – on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at Topwater Grill - 815 Avenue O - San Leon, TX  77539. This event funds scholarships for students currently pursuing studies in Communication at the University of Houston.

We are proud to share that over the past nine years we have given  $50,000 in scholarships to 30 students pursuing a degree in the Communication field.  One hundred percent of the funds raised from this event go directly to scholarships.  We are extremely grateful to the current and future sponsors of this event for its continued success.  We would be honored to have you or your organization join us in our efforts to provide much needed support for UH students. 

Here’s how you can help support these students, plus receive benefits for your business:

  • Become a corporate sponsor. Benefits are listed on the enclosed sheet, and returning the form enclosed secures your spot.
  • Donate a raffle item. You’ll be listed as a donor on signage at the event for your donated item(s).
  • Attend the event on June 18th. An awards dinner will be held that evening, recognizing the tournament champions and this year’s scholarship recipients. Tickets are only $25 each, so please let us know if we should include you by indicating your attendance on the enclosed form.

The Valenti School of Communication Alumni Association is a member of the University of Houston Alumni Association and is comprised of alumni in the fields of Journalism, Public Relations, Advertising, Radio and Television and other affiliated fields.

We would love to see you at the Cougar Saltwater Open on June 18th. We’ll show you a great time, and your generosity and support for our scholarship and alumni programs are very much appreciated.
