Dear Mrs. Lewis,
My school is hosting a silent auction next month to raise money for our Art & Music Department. We’re looking for donated items from local businesses for participants at the auction to bid on. I thought of you immediately. Your handmade candy is known by everyone in our community to be the very best in the state!
If you can donate a gift basket (of at least $50 value) for the auction, we will post an ad for Lewis Candy Inc. in the back of our program. Donated items over $100 will receive advertisement recognition on our “Auction For Art” poster as well. Whatever you can donate, would be greatly appreciated.
All donated items are being collected in our cafeteria hall on Saturday, August 21st from 9:00am-7:00pm. The “Auction For Art” is being held Saturday, September 25th in the high school auditorium from 6:00-10:00pm.
Thank you so much for your help and support!
