RE:  Sponsorship for 19th Annual                                                                
Breast Cancer Awareness Cook-Off

To Whom It May Concern:

For the last eighteen (18) years several individuals and businesses have sponsored this annual cook-off that benefits the Gifts of Hope. The cook off was founded by Patsy Childress in 2000 to give back to her community. Patsy sadly lost her battle in December 2015. We are continuing to carry on her legacy. This year’s cook-off will again be held at the American Legion Woods Lynch Post #19, 501 Veterans Airpark Road, in Midland, Texas on Saturday, October 12, 2019 – October being Breast Cancer Awareness month.

The Gifts of Hope provides help with day-to-day expenses for patients at Allison Cancer Center. Gifts of Hope also supports Hope House, a “home-away-from home” at no charge for patients from out-of-town while doing treatments.  All money stays in the Permian Basin.  Donations are tax deductible.  Information concerning their purpose and their 501(3)-c certification are attached.

This year, Party For A Cause has made the decision to expand our donations to additional organizations in the West Texas area. At this current time, we have not identified the organizations but are excited to continue to help local charities.

Money for the Gifts of Hope is raised through sponsorships, the sale of T-shirts, caps and koozies, raffle ticket sales, 50-50 ticket sales, a silent auction and donations.  Overall, last year’s cook-off raised just under $27,400.00.  Total raised for the eighteen (18) years of this cook off is a little under $648,000.00. Unfortunately, our funds raised were way below normal in 2018. With YOUR help, we can triple that amount in 2019!

You or your company can help support this great cause with your sponsorship. The 2019 levels of sponsorship are on the attached page. PLEASE NOTE DUE DATE FOR CHECKS AND INFORMATION is AUGUST 15, 2019.  If you are receiving a shirt, please advise as to the size of shirt you would like.  Donations of any amount – large or small – are very important to us and greatly appreciated.

If  you would like to participate this year, please respond as soon as possible.  If you are new to this cause, we will need two (2) samples of your logo to be included on the sponsor shirt.  All checks should be made payable to Gifts of Hope. We will need your money no later than August 15, 2019….the absolute cut-off being September 1, 2019.   Use of logos will be on a first paid – first used as space is limited.  An invoice can be provided, and an acknowledgement of your donation will be sent from Gifts of Hope.
