Dear Mr. McCaskey:
On behalf of the Board of Directors, Belmont High School, I am writing to invite you to be our chief guest for our fund raising walk. South Central Scholars Foundation has done a commendable job in assisting the needy in our society and therefore, by gracing our activity, it will be a big reinforcement towards the charitable plan.
The funds will increase our bursary aid kitty and enable us to help more needy students to pay in our school to pay school fees. Previously, we have been getting funds through club activities organized students and teachers and well wishers. Through our program we have been able to help 16 needy students complete high school and proceed to college. The program has been a success and transformed many young people’s lives and has been appreciated by the local community. We, therefore, believe that by expanding the kitty it will help more students and the society. We have made printed t-shirts that we are selling for $10 each as part of raising funds. In addition, we shall be selling tickets for $3 on that day. The theme of the day will be ‘Raise me, Raise us’ in line with our program that intends to join the community and elevate everybody. It will be a 4 mile walk after which we shall assemble in our school stadium for the speech and thanks giving.
We will be delighted and privileged if you would be available to be our guest speaker. I will call you to confirm your attendance and update you on the program. We look forward to a favorable response.
Principal, Belmont High School
