Dear Chamber Member,
The Greater Fennville Chamber of Commerce is excited to
offer a fun and supportive way to assist your fellow member, Allegan County
United Way, with their annual fundraising campaign and offer something to you
The Allegan County United Way will be kicking off their
2011/12 fundraising campaign in mid-September and we have decided to offer our
support. Allegan County United Way is
not only a member of the chamber, but they also serve some of our members and
aid in making the Allegan Area the perfect place to live, work and play! So we
decided to jump-start the campaign a little with a Chamber Kick-Off Contest!
We have come up with a way in which you can participate in
the United Way campaign without too much work on your part. Enclosed is a t-shirt that we are hoping you
will agree to “sell” for $1.00. You can
have the donor put their name on the t-shirt and display them in your place of
business. This campaign will run from Monday,
August 22nd to Friday, September 30th.
Your role in all of this is making the t-shirts available to your
customers, displaying the t-shirts after they are sold and keeping track of the
money. Mimi and her staff from United
Way will drop off the t-shirts to your place of business and pick them up when
the campaign is over.
We, the Chamber, will be offering a prize for your
participation – the business bringing in the most money will receive an
advertising package including; a free Regent Theatre Screen Ad, a free ad in
the Allegan County News, a FREE expo booth at our 2nd Annual Fall Business
Expo, plugs on our Facebook and Twitter pages, and a spotlight feature in
October’s issue of the Chamber News. All
participants will be listed in a press release and in advertising of contest.
Mimi has also enclosed a United Way brochure for this year
so that you can see what ACUW is up to and she would be happy to answer any
questions you may have about ACUW.
If you are interested in participating please contact Annie
(firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 13th.
We look forward to a fun and easy way to help out a fellow member! Thank you!
