A Fundraiser for a “Buddy”

Hey Jeff,
Attached is a letter thanking you for the contribution of your time on Nov 13th for Justin’s fundraiser. Formality aside, I want to thank you personally for finding it in your heart to take on a small, private event like this no questions asked. Your generosity made the event. Plain and simple. It would not have been the successful night that it was without you and your energy.). A silly little letter doesn’t seem like enough to thank you…

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your generous donation of your time to our event that was held on November 13th, 2009 called A Fundraiser for a “Buddy”. This event was created to raise money for a colleague, Justin, whom is battling cancer for the second time before his 30th birthday. It was our goal to provide Justin with a portion of the costs for his upcoming treatment in the New Year. Your donation of your time and services truly made our event. The energy you provided throughout the night was contagious; many people said it was the best night out they have had in years. The event wouldn’t have had the level of success that did if it were not for you. Overall, we raised $4500.00 to go towards his treatment costs. Moreover, his family had the opportunity to see him have an amazing night surrounded by people who truly care which at the end of the day, is a priceless occasion. I continue to receive calls from his friends and family back home thanking me for this event and the opportunity for Justin to celebrate his life with the people he cares about the most. In turn, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your contribution to this event. It was, in all intents and purposes, a huge success.
