A Special Invitation from Tom Glavine Powered By Docstoc
					On Friday, February 8, 2008, Tom Glavine is partnering with the Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF) to host Atlanta’s most prestigious gathering of athletes and celebrities to raise money for Georgia residents impacted by organ transplantation. Glavine, a former Atlanta Brave and current pitcher for the New York Mets, achieved his historic 300th victory in his professional baseball career this season, and we are committed to making the 16th annual Tom Glavine's Spring Training a momentous event as well. Together, we invite you to contribute to Spring Training and join more than 50 athletes, 100 elite businesses and 500 guests at the Georgia Aquarium for an evening filled with games, food, auctions, and good times, all while supporting a great cause. In the past 15 years, Tom Glavine's Spring Training has raised more than 3.8 million dollars! This money supports Georgians like Len Geiger, who waited five years to receive a double lung transplant. GTF assisted Len through its return-to-work program, JumpStart, to help complete his recovery by connecting him to a full-time job with medical benefits. GTF’s programs provide emotional, educational and financial support to organ transplant candidates, recipients, living donors, and family members and are funded in part by the generosity of Spring Training sponsorships and in-kind donations. By contributing to Spring Training, your organization is placed among the top ranks of professional athletes, community leaders and corporations who are dedicated to having fun while supporting the more than 7,000 Georgians living with or waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. You and your guests will be delightfully entertained while helping an ever-growing population of Georgians in need of assistance. The event is taking place at the Georgia Aquarium's Oceans Ballroom. The 16,400 squarefoot space provides a spectacular setting and world-class amenities: • Catering by world-renowned chef Wolfgang Puck • The opportunity to have "face-to-face" contact with exotic fish and animals from every region of the globe • The chance to challenge professional athletes in casino-style games Our top-level sponsors will also have the opportunity to enjoy a pre-event cocktail reception with Tom Glavine and a private tour of the Aquarium. For a full list of sponsorship levels and benefits, please see the attached page. Tickets are available only to sponsors and those who make significant in-kind donations. For more information, contact Amanda McBride at 678.514.1185 or amcbride@gatransplant.org, or visit our Web site at www.gatransplant.org. We look forward to seeing you on February 8, 2008 at the Georgia Aquarium for the Georgia Transplant Foundation’s 16th annual Tom Glavine’s Spring Training! Sincerely,

David Bakelman Excecutive Director, GTF
