Dear Local Business Owner:
We are writing to ask you for your help with a cause extremely close to our hearts. We represent the Clarence High School Post Prom committee. We are a 501(3)c non-profit group that is asking for your tax deductible donation to help fund our event.
Recognizing the potential dangers of prom night, the Clarence High School PTO sponsors a post prom party for the senior class following the prom on June 8, 2018, from 11:30 pm to 2:00 am. Statistics show that Prom/Graduation time, the months of April, May and June, is one of the most dangerous times for teens. One-third of the alcohol-related traffic fatalities involving teens each year occur during those months.
This event is designed as a drug and alcohol free party, chaperoned by many teachers and parents. Now a tradition, the post prom party provides special memories for this class as they prepare for graduation and beyond.
The success of the post prom relies on our ability to keep students entertained and motivated to stay for the duration of the party. A wide variety of activities are offered to keep the students engaged, having fun and making fabulous memories with their friends. Prizes galore will be awarded at the end of the night.
Could there be a more worthwhile reason to give than providing a safe, drug-free and alcohol- free night for the students of Clarence High School? Your tax-deductible sponsorship/donation will help us to provide a wonderful Post Prom experience for our students. It takes $13,000-$15,000 to stage a successful event of this scale. We are asking for your help in the form of cash donations, gift certificates or merchandise.
Attached with this letter is a Sponsorship/Donation form that contains all necessary information.
Many thanks in advance,
