Trip to Washington, D.C.

Dear Treasured Supporter of the Urbana High School Choral Program,

We have been invited to participate in America’s National Presidents Day Choral Festival in Washinghton, D.C., to take place on February 3, 2013. This is the 3rd Annual festival of its kind and a major event in our nation’s capitol. The festival will be a musical remembrance of the life and service of John F. Kennedy, and will feature a combined force of mixed voices singing en masse in the Concert Hall of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

We will be raising vital funds for this event throughout the Fall semester of this year. Ways you can participate and support us are as follows:

·         Souvenir Ad Booklet: Purchase an advertisement

·         Santa Pictures and Gift Wrapping: Saturdays Nov. 24 – Dec. 22 @ 9a-1p (Lincoln Square Mall)

We have a large fundraising goal for this event. The expected cost of the National Presidents Day Choral Festival in Washington, D.C. is $40,000. Each student has set a personal fundraising target of $1400. We would greatly appreciate your help in reaching this target because this is an opportunity of a lifetime that we do not want our students to miss out on.

We have raised $15,000 so far and we need $25,000 by the end of the year. Your donation will bring us closer to our goal and help us get to our nations capitol and sing in one of the world’s most respected performance venues to date.

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. As one of our sponsors, we will personally let you know how we do.
