Dear Possible Partner,

My name is Damon Bigelow, seven years ago along with my wife Lori and a few friends we organized a fundraiser called Bands for Benefit to support the fight against cancer.
Bands for Benefit is a group of local rock cover bands that are volunteering their time on Saturday July 21, 2012 doing what they love to do for a great cause and will be held from 12 noon to 9:pm at Singletary Rod and Gun Club in Oxford, Ma. These bands play anything from Aerosmith to ZZ Top. With the support of community organizations we can make this year more successful than last.
Moreover, we also collect items to have at a raffle table for additional fun and support in raising money. We are looking for sponsors to provide a monetary tax deductible donation or a raffle item in support of this fundraising event. We understand how difficult it can be to provide a monetary contribution and thus if that is not possible we appreciate your consideration of donating anything for the raffle. In the past, we have had tickets to museums and zoos, golf courses, theaters, sports equipment, clothing outdoor and home items, and refreshment assistance such as drinks and snacks. No donation is too small and all are greatly appreciated.
This year’s donation will be going to the Why Me program for children’s cancer care. Community support is critical to help us achieve our goal which is to help patients with anything they may need to keep them comfortable during their visit, and also provide the room with the most advanced technology. Clearly we want to offer our thanks in return. So, any donation will be recognized in flyers, cable channel and in radio, television and print coverage.
Please understand any contributions will help us get that much closer to our goal. Contributions can be made to Bands for Benefit and mailed to the following address, Bands for Benefit PO Box 705 Sutton, MA 01590. I am more than happy to come by and pick up an item. The entire amount of your donation will be utilized in support of this fundraising event or will be used in the raffle. Thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,
Damon Bigelow
