Donation Request Letter
The “Amazing London Race” is the brainchild of Shawn Bates, the owner of a small home-based business called EssJay M.E.C.A. (Marketing and Event Coordinating Associates). The goal of EssJay M.E.C.A. is to run special events in the London community to raise funds for non-profit organizations. In recent years, Shawn has raised funds for the “Heart and Stroke Foundation”, “Mackayla's Fight for Sight”, “Jesse's Journey”, “Sunshine Foundation” and the “Children’s Health Foundation”.
The Amazing London Race is conducted in the same format as the hit CBS TV show “The Amazing Race”. In past years we’ve had some amazing weather for the events and each team has come with a lot of enthusiasm and a competitive spirit. Everything combined; helps make this the success that it is.
We are currently seeking sponsors and event hosts for the fifth “Amazing London Race” on June 15, 2013. This time we are going to be raising funds for the Children’s Health Foundation. 100% of the net proceeds from this great event will go to fund specialized health care initiatives, rehabilitation services and research for children.
If you have an interest in taking part in this event and would like to assist with a sponsorship, donation or become an event host, I would like to arrange a time to meet with you and discuss some possibilities. I have included a list of all the sponsorship options available to you and your company.
Please contact me at (519) 453-3711 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you before February 15, 2013 to be included in the advertising campaign. We will be accepting donations for our silent auction and raffle table up until June 10, 2013. I would be more than happy to accommodate any other sponsorship ideas you may have.
