Re: D.A.R.E. New Jersey Inc.
You may be aware that we are proud members of the Board of Directors for D.A.R.E. New Jersey, Inc. D.A.R.E. New Jersey provides the resources to implement drug prevention curriculum in New Jersey’s schools. In order to keep providing services to thousands of children throughout the State of New Jersey, we look for support from many resources. We are requesting your assistance in supporting D.A.R.E.’s signature fundraising event, The Future of New Jersey Gala.
On October 9, 2010, Mark Giannantonio, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Tropicana Casino and Resort and New Jersey Senator Joseph Kyrillos of the 13th Legislative district, will receive the prestigious Future of New Jersey Award presented by D.A.R.E. New Jersey at Drumthwacket, the official residence of the Governor in Princeton, New Jersey. This black tie event will feature a sit down dinner, a silent and a live auction, and musical entertainment by renowned group The Spinners charting 18 top 40 hits.
Included with this letter is a sponsorship and support form as well as a formal invitation. Please distribute this information to organizations in your area which may be able to support this important night for DARE. D.A.R.E. is the largest drug and violence prevention program taught in New Jersey’s schools and reaches thousands of children annually. With the diminished funding and personnel within NJ law enforcement, any donation would be greatly appreciated and will help our organization to continue their support of the children of New Jersey for years to come.
We thank you for your time and consideration; if you have any questions regarding the event you can contact D.A.R.E. New Jersey’s Executive Offices at (609)860-6777.
Very truly yours,
Hon Timothy McDonough William G. Dressel, Jr.
