A larger-than-life statue ...
for a larger-than-life man
Exciting news from the “Bull” Sullivan Division of the Development Foundation:
We have chosen to honor Coach Sullivan by erecting
a 7-foot bronze of him at New Sullivan-Windham Field. The statue will include the skull & cross bone leather helmet and the famous star jersey. Renowned artist Ben Watts from Columbia, Miss., has been chosen to do the statue. You may view his work online at www.benwattsbronzes.com
We have met with the Sullivan children and have their blessings to move forward. The project will take one year to complete, and the plan is to have the unveiling at Homecoming 2012. Our hope is that you will support this project with your money and verbally by encouraging others to participate.
The bronze will cost $60,000. There are three giving levels:
- $200, brick paver located in the Walk of Champions leading up to the statue.
- $500, brick paver located at the base of the statue.
The brick may contain three lines of print with 14 letters or spaces per line, to designate the person being honored or memorialized.
- $2,500, miniature (about 18 inches tall) bronze of the original. Perfect for home or office.
Please send your tax-deductible donation today to EMCC Foundation Office, P.O. Box 158, Scooba MS 39358. It is very important that you do not delay; the bronze must be paid for up front. Don’t forget to tell us the inscription for the brick paver. For your convenience, you can charge your donation on your Visa or Master Card by calling (662) 476-5063.
Don’t miss this opportunity to have your name permanently attached to The Legendary Coach "Bull" "Cyclone" Sullivan!
Thank you very much.
