 Don’t Believe the hype
                                                    Celebrity Bowl-a-thon 2011
               Bowl-a-thon is June 25 - On line auction begins April 15

Dear Friend:

Please accept this invitation to provide an auction item for the 17th annual Don’t Believe
the Hype Celebrity Bowl-a-thon Fundraiser. The on-line auction begins April 15 and the
silent auction will take place at the bowl-a-thon at USA Bowl on June 25, 2011 with a
VIP reception at 6p.m. and bowling begins at 8:00p.m.

Over the years we have had numerous celebrities including comedians Dick Gregory,
Shuckey Duckey, Nanette Lee and Phyllis Yvonne Stickney; singers Eric Benet and
Miles Jaye; Public Enemy members Chuck D and Malik Farrakhan; former Dallas Mayor
Ron Kirk, U.S. Congressman Martin Frost; actress Kiki Shepard; national journalists
Rene Syler, Brian Custer and Roland Martin, professional athletes and a host of others.
We have some exciting celebrities lined up for this year!

It’s a fun event and proceeds go to programs benefiting area youth; especially the low-to-
moderate income. In 2011, beneficiaries will be the Dallas-Fort Worth Association of
Black Journalists scholarship fund and Urban Journalism Workshop--which has received
over $25,000 previously, Sen. Royce West’s Dr. Emmett J. Conrad Internship Program
and the HBCU scholarship fund. We also have an ambitious goal of paying for five
summer internships. Additionally proceeds from the event have helped take students to
conventions in Seattle, Phoenix, Orlando, D.C., Atlanta, Indianapolis, Houston, New
Orleans, Las Vegas and Oklahoma. Jeffries Street Learning Center, the Black Academy
of Arts and Letters, the Emmett Till Foundation and the African American Museum are
just a few of the beneficiaries over the years.

We would love to also have your company join us at the event. Attached is a form to
pledge your support. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call me at 972-

Thanks for your consideration.
