Dear Fellow “Action Sports” Brothers & Sisters,
Happy New Year to you and yours from Going Places!
We had a fantastic Christmas dance a few weeks ago which was sponsored by Mark
Kelly and the folks over at Global Surf Industries! ?
Please consider helping us by sponsoring a dance in 2007!
Who: Going Places, Inc. is a North County San Diego based non-profit organization which was established in 1995 to “enhance the social and recreational opportunities for the mentally and physically challenged.” Historically, funding has been exclusively provided by members of the “action sports” community. However, Going Places intends to branch out and appeal to other North County businesses.
Why: Because helping the less fortunate is our duty and makes you feel good. This population cannot vote. This population is generally treated reasonably well from a school, work, and living arrangement standpoint but is sadly neglected when it comes to social and recreational activities. Plus, your donation is tax deductible and you will be provided a receipt. Your employees are welcome to attend and help serve the pizza. We are happy to hang a corporate banner and/or hand out “freebies” of any sort.
What: Free Pizza and Cookies at monthly dances for 150-200 mentally disabled adults with Down syndrome, Rhett’s syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, and other afflictions which “retards” their mental development.
Where: Brengle Terrace Park – Senior Center, 1200 Vale Terrace, Vista, CA.
When: Saturday evenings 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm. Available dates for sponsorship are:
February 10, 2007
March 10, 2007
April 07, 2007

How Much: Deluxe package = $250 pizza only. Da Kine package = $300 pizza and a dessert. Please mail your tax deductible check to Going Places, Inc., P.O. Box 300331, Escondido, CA 92030. Please confirm with me by return e-mail as well.
Publicity: We will do our best to spread your goodwill with all appropriate magazines and e-letters. Looks like Trans World will be helping our cause for starters thanks to Liam & Louise.
Thank you for your consideration and God Bless you and yours!
