BIAPH is honoured and delighted to have been chosen as the recipient of this year’s proceeds from Martin & Hillyer Associates Annual Charity Bowl-a-Thon!
Dear Friends, Colleagues and Valued Community Supporters:
At Martin & Hillyer Associates we are delighted to announce our partnership with BIAPH for our 2014 Bowl-A-Thon. We will donate all proceeds raised by this event to BIAPH in support of their initiative to enhance the quality of life for persons in the region(s) of Peel and Halton who are living with the effects of an acquired brain injury through: EDUCATION, AWARENESS, SUPPORT, ADVOCACY, and PREVENTION. Past recipients of this donation have included Food4Kids, City Kidz, Woodview – Children’s Mental Health and Autism Services, Wayside House of Hamilton, Nelson Youth Centre, Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital MRI Fund, Autism Ontario – Halton and the Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children.
There are two reasons for our letter.
Firstly, we are kindly requesting donations of the following sort:
a) A Gift Donation – This can include gift certificates, raffle items and/or silent auction items. In the past, these items have contributed significantly to the amount of proceeds raised for the designated charity. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated!
b) Sponsor a Lane – A sign with your business name will be placed in a highly visible area above a designated lane in the bowling alley. Signs will be in place several days before the night of the event for some additional exposure. There are a limited number of lanes available for sponsorship so get your request in early! (Should you choose this option; a minimum cash donation of $200.00 is kindly required.)
c) A Cash Donation – It goes without saying, we welcome and appreciate any cash donations. Please make your cheque payable to Martin & Hillyer – Charity Bowl-A-Thon. We also accept VISA and MasterCard. See enclosed donation form for details.
Should you wish to make a donation to our event, we would ask that you complete the attached form and fax it (or mail it with your enclosed cheque) to the attention of Diana Taylor on or before May 1st, 2014. One of our committee members will then contact you to co-ordinate pick-up of your donation, if necessary. On request, tax receipts can be provided for any cash donations.
Secondly, we would be delighted if you, your colleagues or friends and family could join us by organizing a team of bowlers to participate in the event on Wednesday, May 14th! You may have up to 6 bowlers on a lane. You are welcome to organize your own full team of 6 or register individually and we’ll be happy to place you with a team. In either scenario the cost is $25.00 per bowler. This cost includes two hours of bowling and shoe rental. We also invite you to participate in the evening’s events such as the silent auction, brown bag raffle and returning this year – the pie smack!
If you, as an individual or team, are interested in bowling, please complete the attached registration form and return it along with the registration fee to our office on or before May 1st, 2014.
Martin & Hillyer Associates and BIAPH would like to thank you, in advance, for your participation and generosity.
We truly hope you will join us at the Martin & Hillyer Associates 20thAnnual Charity Bowl-A-Thon on Wednesday, May 14th!
For your convenience, I have attached the forms for donations and bowler registration to this message.
