Dear [recipient's name]:
In recognition of the many cats and dogs that are in need in our community, we are pleased to announce a fundraiser for Chicago's rescue organization Paws and Pals, and we would like to warmly invite you to join us for this extra-special event. Please join us on Saturday, July 10 at the Civic Center on Main Street.
The event will be held in the ballroom from 7 to 10 p.m. You will enjoy catered food, a cash bar, a silent auction, and door prizes. Representatives from numerous local pet businesses will be on hand to provide demonstrations and coupons and to answer questions. It is sure to be a meaningful and enjoyable evening.
Cost is $30 per person. Please RSVP no later than July 2 by sending an e-mail to [[email protected]].
Thanks in advance for your support of our community's furry friends, and we look forward to seeing you on July 10th.
