I am writing on behalf of Conrad's Black Dirt Days and their 2011 event being held on June 3 and 4. Black Dirt Days is an annual celebration held during the summer months and dates back 25 years.
As you may know, every community celebration or festival requires financial contributions to help sponsor events and for general expenses. I'm writing you today to inform you of the "Facebook Auction" I'm hosting on April 17 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Where most people can't seem to pull themselves away from their busy everyday lives, I'm offering an auction held online at the convenience of your own home. All proceeds will be given to Black Dirt Days. This is a public invitation and would like everyone to participate!
I took it upon myself to help out this year, in hopes to raise money for this community event. I would love to have your help!
Here's how you can:
Donate an item(s) from your business
Donate a gift certificate to your business
Each item that is donated will be listed in the auction. With the item you donate, your business and contact information will be listed also (free advertisement!), along with the retail price of the item. If you wish to have a starting bid on the item you donate, you may request that, but it's not necessary. All unsold items will be returned to you.
If you wish to donate, you may do so by contacting me by phone or email with the information listed above, and I would be happy to pick up the item, or items can also be mailed. Anything is welcome, just please be sure to include your business card so you can be contacted along with the retail price of your item.
Thank you for your time and I hope you'll consider donating!
