FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Dear Classic Auction

On behalf of the chairs, I would like to thank you for your support of the March of Dimes event. The event was a great success with 51 booths, over 700 guests and $35,000 raised to save babies' lives. We have received remarkable feedback. Our prize board and auction was a huge success and has tremendous potential in subsequent years.

Thank you for serving as the auctioneer for the evening. It was great of you to help us package and sell the items. They brought the highest possible bid because of your expertise and skills as an auctioneer.

The March of Dimes is a national volunteer health agency whose mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects and infant mortality. The March of Dimes funds programs of research, community services, education, and advocacy. In 1998, the March of Dimes celebrates its 60th Anniversary, marking six decades of lifesaving breakthroughs for babies.

This was our second year and we're still in a growing phase.... next year we'll knock your socks off! We were pleased to partner with you on this event and deeply appreciate your continued support of the March of Dimes.

Sincerely,

Director of Special Events
