"Corporate Sponsorship Packetâ€”Cover Letter"
April 2010 Greetings, The women of the Iota Eta Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta at The University of Texas – El Paso are hosting our 1st annual AmaXIng Challenge: Xi Marks the Spot event to raise money for Autism Speaks. Our chapter is seeking participants and volunteers to help make this event a huge success. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for autism, and in the 20 minutes it may take you to read this letter and corresponding information, another child will be diagnosed with this terrible disorder. For more than eight years the Iota Eta Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta has focused on bettering the lives of children through our philanthropic endeavors, and now—with our partnership with Autism Speaks—we are concentrating on raising money to fund research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism. Also increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Alpha Xi Delta’s AmaXIng Challenge: Xi Marks the Spot will be held April 24th at The Union Breezeway on the University of Texas – El Paso’s campus.
