Ethiopian New Year Celebration

To all of our local business owners, family, and friends,
On behalf of theEthiopian Community and Cultural Center, (ECCC) board members, our team would like to reach out to you today to let you know about an exciting opportunity.
In an attempt to build community within the Ethiopian culture, we have been working vigorously with both small and large companies to raise funds for the Ethiopian New Year celebration. Our current goal, is to work closely with local Ethiopian business owners and add to our network of people committed to making the celebration an extraordinary event.
You will be pleased to know that we have already raised enough money to secure the location and cover a portion of the expenses. However, we need an additional $25,000.00 in order to reach our financial goal and make the celebration the best it can be.
Time is of theessence, so we are turning to YOU to become a part of this great community and join us in the planning and funding of our celebration. Specifically, we are asking each participant to not only donate what they can, but to also increase awareness by inviting others to join the ECCC in this notable project.

Let's face it; the more participants we have, the stronger our community will become. So, please donate as you feel prompted AND share this opportunity with your family, friends, and co-workers.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and carefully consider how you might be involved in making this New Year celebration as memorable as possible. The ECCC is committed to unifying our people for the sake of the greater good. Your participation is greatly appreciated and valued.

*Please note:We are a non-profit organization, which means your donation is tax-deductible.

We cannot thank you enough for your time, donation, and dedication to this project!

Most sincerely,
The ECCC Board Members
