Take Tan This LA to the Oscars!

Hi everyone! It's Ellen!

As some of you may know, I've started my own mobile spray tanning business two years ago. And now I'm ready to take it up a notch!

Last year I was offered the opportunity to spray tan "A list celebrities" at a glamorous Beverly Hills Oscar event, but I was unable to participate due to financial reasons.

Fortunately, the creator of this event has contacted me this year to feature my business, Tan This LA, at this year's Roger Neal Style Hollywood Oscar Suite at The L'Ermitage Hotel, Beverly Hills.

This is a terrific opportunity to boost my business. It is a three day event at which I will have my own personal photographer and reporter. I will have the opportunity to be on local television shows and in major fashion publications.

But like everything else in life, nothing is free. This year I had a financial backer who was going to help me be part of the event. But due to a serious illness they were unable to follow through.

I didn't want to let this opportunity pass me by again. So I dug under the couch cushions and had a couple of garage sales.

But I still need your help!

Some of the things I need your help with include:
1. The cost of the event is $3,000.
2. I only have one spray tan unit, but I would like a back up unit in case my original breaks down. The units with supplies cost $5,000
3. Marketing material (ie. gift certificates, flyers, car wrapping, banners and other promotional merchandise) will cost $2,000.

The event takes place on January 25th, 26th and 27th of 2014 but all funds are due by December 15th of 2013.

For your generous donation I would like to offer you one of the gifts listed.

In addition to the gifts you are also welcome to use your donation as a tax write off. Please contact me for my tax ID number.

Thank you so much for your time!
