Below is the fundraising email/letter we are sending out. If you are interested in helping to sponsor this year's market, please read below. If you'd like this information emaied to you, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As many of you are aware, we are in the midst of launching a farmers market in Pembroke. The official launch of the market will be Saturday, July 10th on the Town Green from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. The support we’ve received from the community, interested vendors and volunteers has been overwhelming. We think you are going to be very happy with the local products that will be available.
As a brand-new community group, our funding resources are limited and we are writing with hopes of securing sponsorship donations. We are putting together the first annual P.F.M. Guide, an informative brochure with 2010 vendor products and contact information to make your shopping easier both at the market and the rest of the year. The P.F.M. Get Fresh Guide will be available at the market and around town. Individuals, families or non-profits willing to make a donation of $25 will have their names included in the brochure as a friend of the market. Businesses interested in making a donation of $50 donation will have their business name and website included in the guide.
With the money raised, we hope to increase the awareness of not only the Pembroke Farmers’ Market through advertising and signage but also of the importance of eating locally, supporting local farmers, growers and artisans and educating our community on safe, healthy eating habits.
We hope the market will be a part of the town for many years to come. Please help us continue our efforts to a successful farmers’ market for our community! If you are interested in sponsoring the market, please fill out the attached information below.
Thank you for your support,
Matt York and Christine Falk
