Dear Friends and Supporters,
?
I am excited to inform you that we are forming a very special committee named after a neglected dog called Emily.? Emily was severely neglected and abused, before we were able to rescue her and provide her with medical care and attention.? We hope to bring attention to Emily's plight and the tens of thousands like her who continue to suffer on the streets or in abusive homes by hosting a series of fundraisers throughout the metropolitan area during the third or fourth week of July.
?
We plan on asking and registering businesses and individuals to host "Emily Events."? Each event will be unique and held at different venues across town.? Several bars may offer specialty drink specials.? Some stores may schedule a special "Emily" day, with proceeds donated to our organization.? Individuals may also host an "Emily" yard sale or a backyard beer bash and turn over donations to our organization.? All the events will be listed on our website, in our press releases, flyers, and in our email alerts to our members.? We believe that the media and the public will support these efforts and that these events will lead to an annual awareness week that will only grow in scope and size each year.
?
We believe that this format can accomplish all of our goals:? raise awareness of the plight of abused animals, raise needed funds for our cruelty investigation and prevention programs, and develop new take-charge volunteers for our group.? You are being sent this email because we would like you to join this exciting and important committee!? We believe that your talents, skills, contacts, and passion for this cause can help us reach our goals!?
?
Our committee will only meet once or twice and correspond primarily through emails.? Committee members can help us by identifying potential venues, by registering businesses or individuals to host "Emily Events," or by hosting an event at a favorite hang-out or watering-hole.? The centerpiece of the "Emily Events" will be a cocktail party held in the reception area of condominiums in the CBD.? We hope to have between 10-15 other events during the same week.
?
To accept this invitation, and/or to nominate someone else, please fill out this committee registration form.? Our first committee meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 9th, at Starbucks, located at 424 Veterans Blvd, close to Kenneth's Hair Design, from 7 - 8:30pm.? If we outgrow the space, I will notify each member of a new location.? Or, if any of you would like to offer a new location (conference room, living room, or office space) please contact me.?
