To Whom It May Concern:
Re: Bowling Fundraiser and Silent Auction (Oct. 30, 2009)I am excited and honoured to be taking part in the organization of an important fundraising event for the TEJAS ANIMAL REFUGE & REFUGE RR Sanctuaries and hope that you and/or your organization can PLEASE HELP with this important and wonderful cause for these animal rescue shelters.
Your gift today means a lot to me, and more importantly to the owners and volunteers who work tirelessly every day and night in the rescuing and caring for all the animals at their shelters as well as the endless hours investigating cruelty cases.
It is critical at this time that we raise enough funds to build four (4) new shelters to house the many displaced and rescued animals as well as funds to provide feed and care for the animals at both Tejas Animal Refuge and Refuge RR Shelters.
Please visit the attached websites for more information on these organizations. They were both started in 1987 and incorporated and federally registered in 1990 and 2004 and are the largest farm animal Refuges in Canada. These rescue facilities truly need your support to continue this exceptional journey.

My purpose in writing to you today is to ask you to come out and support this cause with an exciting evening of bowling! There will also be a silent auction and 50/50 draw. Snacks and refreshments are also available.
There are several ways YOU CAN HELP with supporting this great cause depending on your personal and/or company budget:
- Buy a ticket for an evening of bowing ($25.00 with proceeds going towards the animal sanctuaries). See details for event below.
