                     “Leading Public Procurement in Virginia”

The Virginia Association of Governmental Purchasing (VAGP) is a professional association providing support,
advocacy, and professional development training to approximately 1,200 purchasing professionals, representing
over 275 public entities. Our members are involved in various procurement functions throughout the
Commonwealth of Virginia, purchasing the full range of goods and services for cities, counties, towns, state
agencies, authorities, schools, universities, colleges, hospitals, and special boards.

Each year, VAGP holds both a spring and fall conference for its membership and each host city selects a local
charity to benefit from the conference auction. The County of Loudoun will be the host for the 2008 Fall
Conference to be held October 29-31, 2008 and has selected the Loudoun Holiday Coalition as its designated
charity. The Coalition’s Mission Statement is to serve less fortunate families, children and senior citizens by
providing much needed items, in a manner that promotes dignity and self respect. We believe that a single act of
kindness can be the turning point towards a brighter future for those in need.

Eligible families "shop" in a store that has been stocked with donated food and merchandise allowing families a
sense of choice and dignity. The coalition believes that every family is special, and that their dignity and privacy
need to be preserved. The store is stocked with thousands of new items that have been donated or purchased with
donated funds.

The stores are held annually at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. Hundreds of volunteers and donors come
together to set up the store and help with distribution. It is truly a community effort to bring the magic of the
holidays to every one.

Since its inception the Holiday Programs have assisted hundreds of families at Thanksgiving and Christmas every
year. In 2006, the Coalition helped nearly 1,600 families, including about 2,800 children. They received holiday
food baskets, personal care baskets, new clothing, toys, filled stockings and more. For more information on this
organization, please visit

Therefore, in an effort to maximize the benefits to this organization, we are asking citizens and businesses to help
by donating an item or service for a live auction to be conducted during the conference.

In the past, our fundraising efforts have helped raise thousands of dollars for various charities throughout Virginia.
Our efforts and activities have become a magnet for goodwill in our community and donors will be recognized in
the conference program.

I hope you will join the many businesses that have so generously participated in this event in the past. Attached is
a donation form to complete and return by fax or mail. Please do not hesitate to call with any questions. I would
be happy to help you customize your donation to maximize exposure of your company, merchandise, or services.
