First Annual Wine and Cheese and Silent Auction Fundraiser

Dear Friends,

Our organization, The Friends of Haiti, Inc. would like to invite you to attend our first wine, cheese, and silent auction fundraiser being given on October 7 and 8, 2011 from 7PM to 10PM. The cost for the event is $35 per person.
The Friends of Haiti Inc. are dedicated to Haiti and its needs. We are a charity that supports education, specifically educating the people of Haiti. Our organization has decided to assist in the mission of helping to educate those Haitians who wish to become doctors and nurses. We have partnered with the University Notre Dame d*Haiti in Port au Prince, a medical university, to assist students who have found it difficult to pay their tuition. These students wish to give something back to their country, and it is a reality that Haiti needs good doctors and nurses. What better place to recruit needed medical help, than in Haiti itself?
In a country that has 60 to 70 percent unemployment, finding a job is very difficult. We feel strongly that we need to fight the circle of poverty for the next generation by helping to educate them. Unlike other professions in Haiti, there will always be jobs for doctors and nurses. So this is where we have placed our focus.
We have invited Mgr. Pierre Andre Pierre, Rector of the University Notre Dame d*Haiti, to be our guest speaker. We feel that your presence and participation in this fundraising effort will greatly enhance our ability to help many Haitian students who would not be able to attend the university without financial assistance.
It would be our great honor if you would agree to attend this function. We know that you can help us make a difference in helping Haiti. We have enclosed in this letter, information regarding the event. If you wish to attend, please cut off the bottom of the information sheet and mail it with your check to the address listed above.
We thank you for your kind attention to this invitation. Please consider attending and helping us with this fundraiser. Please call 702-561-4119 or 702-523-8963 for information regarding the locations for the event.

"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. " (1 John 4:9-10)
