Donations are AAU OK

The Centex Rockets seventh- and eighth-grade AAU basketball team based in Mexia is raising funds to help defray costs of trips to a tournament in San Antonio in early July and a trip to a national tournament in Atlanta the end of July.
A letter to potential sponsors and donors describes the Rockets as “a sports and academic organization based in Mexia, Texas, that provides athletic instruction and experience for children.”
The organization’s goals include, “the development and empowerment of future leaders/athletes by using sports as a tool to fund college, excel in academics, develop life skills and values, and to become well-rounded, productive citizens in society.”
