Call To Artists: Muscular Dystrophy Association Fundraiser

from:

Wendy Murdy
Executive Director, Pittsburgh District Office
Muscular Dystrophy Association

I represent the Pittsburgh division of the Muscular Dystrophy Association and our annual Muscle Team Event. www.pittsburghmuscleteam.org

Pittsburgh Muscle Team® is a branded high-profile social event that incorporates community leaders, professional athletes, and MDA Goodwill Ambassadors. This exciting event is scheduled to take place at Heinz Field on Thursday, March 18, 2010.

After attending the Handmade Arcade and seeing the quality of items that the artists created, I hope that I can present an opportunity that will beneficial to all. Our event features a silent auction. I believe that this is a priceless opportunity for emerging Pittsburgh artists to showcase their work by donating one of their items and gaining visibility to over 1000 members of Pittsburgh’s business community.

In appreciation of their tax-deductible donation, they will receive recognition in the commemorative event journal. They may also provide promotional materials to be displayed throughout the evening with the donation such as an 8 x 10 sign or business cards.

The funds raised from this event will provide services for families living with a neuromuscular disease in southwestern Pennsylvania. Donations will directly benefit those persons and families in our area by providing such services as payment towards leg braces and wheelchairs, support groups, clinic visits, summer camp and furthering MDA research.

Is it possible for you to forward this information along to the participating artists and post it on your webpage?

Thank you so much,

Wendy
