YOUR ASSISTANCE IS NEEDED:
We absolutely require your assistance to provide this valuable learning opportunity this year! At minimum, we need to raise $10,000.00 just to hold a very basic event at all this year. With $40,000.00, we believe we could offer the same quality of event as we have in the past 3 years (world-class keynotes, quality breakouts, reduced parking fees, perhaps a coffee break). If we can raise $70,000.00, we will be able to provide everything, including a modest breakfast and lunch for all participants.
Please share this letter with your school community and local businesses. Be assured that all donations pay for items provided by local businesses and employers; an investment in Literacy and Learning Day is an investment in our local economy. A Sponsorship Opportunities Form is included with this letter; please copy and distribute it as you deem appropriate! Every donation helps and will assist us in providing our 2017 Literacy and Learning Day Conference to parents, grandparents and caregivers looking for barrier-free, professional, support and guidance.
