Carrie forwarded this on to the gastronome list. I think Russell, Carrie & i are going. You should come, too! Keep in mind that no, this isn't me training for the Marathon - the athletic one is that nice girl Jennifer, mentioned below.
A DINNER FOR A REASON!
My Friends, My Family, My Partners in Crime...
As you probably know, I have been training for the Honolulu Marathon in December, and raising money for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation. I Thank all of you for your support through our previous events such as our speed dating events.
We are now doing our last event: A Gala Dinner at the California Culinary Academy at 425 Polk Street (near the Civic Center) on November 12.
This event will be our last fundraising effort, and - if everything goes per our plans, we will raise $10,000 for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation in one evening. Just like every other non-profit in this horrible economy, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation is hurting for cash, and your tax deductible donation will help them continue their services to the local community.
I would like to formally invite you to you a semi-formal dinner at the California Culinary Academy. The dinner will be prepared by the famous chefs of tomorrow. We are currently getting both wine and entertainment donated to the event, and a silent auction will follow. This will be a fabulous evening, and a great opportunity for you to meet new friends.
The details of the dinner are:
Tuesday, November 12
6 PM to 10 PM
$50 Donation to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation
If you are interested in purchasing a ticket, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details. We can take cash, check or even credit card.
Do you know anyone who would be interested in attending our gala dinner? Would your company be interested in buying a table? (A table consists of 10 seats). I need help in getting the world out- please help me by helping to sell tickets to this event to the wonderful people that you know.
Do you want to help our event, but cannot afford a ticket to the event? We need lots of help, and I would be the most grateful person in the world if you volunteer. Email me if this is something that you would be interested in.Posted by shock on October 12, 2002 | TrackBack
