Charity Race for the Blue Star Mothers of Greater Dayton
To Whom It May Concern:
The Hobby Shop is holding a charity radio control car race on August 6, 2011 from 1 to 7pm at The
Hobby Shop Raceway located at 153 N Springboro Pike. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be
donated to the Blue Star Mothers of Greater Dayton.
Blue Star Mothers is a non-partisan, non-political organization dedicated to our troops. They are
mothers who now have, or have had, children honorably serving in the military. They are a non-profit
Veterans service organization supporting our military children while promoting patriotism. This
year’s Charity Race will raise money so care packages can be sent to troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, Korea,
and Germany. By giving to Blue Star Mothers of Greater Dayton, you’ll be supporting our troops
overseas. You will be helping them provide a sense of home life while serving their country admirably.
To help encourage the participants, prizes will be raffled at various points of the program. We are
asking local businesses for donations that can be used in this raffle and would greatly appreciate any
offering you would be able to provide. We are looking for merchandise or other items that we can
raffle during the event to help raise our total donation to the charity.
If you decide to contribute a donation, your business will be acknowledged the evening of the event, as
well as in our store and on the website, www.thehobbyshoponline.com. We are currently looking to
gain added exposure for the event on the 11 o’clock news, and have one TV station currently
expressing an interest in filming spots for the race. We would also like to give you further exposure by
providing you an opportunity to display merchandise and information on August 6, 2011, the day of
our raffle and charity race.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me at The Hobby Shop, (937)-436-6161, and I will be
glad to answer any questions you may have in regards to your valuable donation for this annual event.
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration and for your support as we try and help the Blue Star
Mothers of Greater Dayton.
