I am writing to you on behalf of the Bay Area Discovery Museum, the nationally recognized one-of-a-kind indoor/outdoor children's museum that offers a full range of programs for children, parents, school groups and educators. Located on 7 1/2 acres in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area at Fort Baker in Sausalito, CA, the Museum's unique programs feature hands-on art, science, environmental and media exhibitions, performances, special events and ongoing educational curricula... all with a focus on fun! Over 300,000 children, parents and educators from throughout the Bay Area visited the museum last year, including those who participated in special outreach and in-school programs. The museum is a winner of the National Tourist Destination Award and the Historic Preservation Award.
I am writing to request a donation of 1 custom cake for 15 kids + adults for the auction portion of our major fundraising event, PLAYDATE 2009, which will take place on May 2, 2009. The event will combine the efforts of the museum’s Board of Trustees and the all-volunteer Discovery Council. The evening will feature cocktails and silent auction in our premiere exhibit, Lookout Cove, followed by dinner, live auction, and entertainment in a spectacular tent at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge. Expected attendance is over 500 people.
Funds raised will allow the museum to continue to advance its mission to connect children to their local environment and the diverse communities that live here. Every gift made in support of the Museum is an investment in its educational programs and exhibits, and in the many children the Museum exists to serve.
In supporting the museum with a donation you will obtain excellent visibility, with Mae Makes Cakes appearing in all event program material and signage at the event. We would be delighted to add Mae Makes Cakes to our list of supporters.
Thank you for your consideration. I will contact you in a few days to answer any questions you may have.
