Dear Potential Sponsor, Advertiser, Silent Auction Donor or Vendor:

Big Apple Ranch, a member club of the International Association of Gay and Lesbian
Country Western Dance Clubs (IAGLCWDC), will host the New York City Hoedown
from May 26-28, 2006. All proceeds benefit the New York City Anti-Violence Project
(AVP), and your support of the event will help minimize event costs and maximize the
difference we can make in the lives of others. At our 2003 Hoedown, an IAGLCWDC
Semi-Annual Convention, close to 600 people attended and we raised over $25,000 for
our beneficiary.

For our Annual Convention, we expect over 800 visitors from New York City and across
the United States, Canada and Europe. Over Memorial Day Weekend 2006, these
guests will participate in lessons, competitions, a silent auction, parties, convention
activities, and take in all the sights, sounds and tastes of the Big Apple. Our host hotel,
the Roosevelt Hotel at Madison and 45th Street, is ideally located in midtown, within
walking distance of Times Square, Broadway’s Theater District, Fifth Avenue shopping,
and near transportation to the entire city. In addition to our out-of-town visitors, we
expect large numbers of local participants, making this an outstanding opportunity to
promote your business to a broad range of well-heeled, fun-loving women and men.

Big Apple Ranch has a proven record of success with fundraising. In addition to our
2003 Hoedown, we hold monthly benefit dances for local charities throughout the year.
Our weekly dances in Chelsea are attended by approximately 125 people. 2006’s New
York City Hoedown promises to continue the proud tradition of bettering our community
by contributing 100% of the event’s proceeds to AVP, the nation’s premier victim
services agency working for the safety and well-being of lesbian, gay, transgender,
bisexual and HIV-affected communities. AVP strives to bring justice for all victims
through direct services and counseling, advocacy, and education. Your contribution is
tax deductible.

Please take a few minutes to review the enclosed materials and visit our website at
www.NYCHoedown.org, and I will be in touch with you soon. If you’d like to reach me
directly, please call ______________, or write to ______________________.

We look forward to working with you to guarantee that the New York City Hoedown is
an outstanding event that will provide you with a great value for your promotional dollar.

Sincerely,



New York City Hoedown
