Back Then Even The Agassi Foundation Wasn't Untouchable

Greetings Rick!

Sorry to hear you still haven't gotten your new laptap Mac. The grapevine speaketh. However, what I really wanted to discuss was the possibility of doing business together.

This weekend I conducted a short Alcalde & Fay client ist Internet search. I was surprised that among the many clients I searched who do not currently support a web site, the Agassi Foundation, was one of them. The Foundation was listed among others on several sites giving thanks for donations, and some included a link to another Agassi page, which unfortunately is no longer active. However, several sites profiling the Foundation were:

* The HSA Architects, Inc. site includes two photographs of the Agassi Center For Education in Las Vegas, along with a brief description of the Center
* The Peter Max site includes a graphic depiction of the Peter Max painting and subsequent poster which were used to raise money for Andre Agassi's Grand Slam for Children
* The Genesis Art gallery site includes a graphic of a commissioned lithograph designated to support the Andre Agassi Foundation

...and a host of sports sites mention the tennis star, but there is no formal site for the Foundation or the tennis player. I might point out that many athletes and special foundations host functional web sites for many different reasons. I noticed in this past weekend's Post that Mr. Agassi is fast approaching a Top 20 ranking again, after dropping out of competitive tennis for several years. I'd like the opportunity Rick, to discuss working with you in developing a website with a strong focus in providing the public greater access to the information and the charitable work of the Foundation.

If you feel my proposal is inappropriate for this particular client, then perhaps you might have other clients who can better profit from my web design & maintenance services.
