THE STORY:

Dear Friends & Family,

As some of you know, we are running the 2012 Boston Marathon on April 16th and are beyond excited [as well as a little terrified]! We are both deep in training and so far, so good!

We are also excited to be running for a great charitable cause: The Boys & Girls Club of Boston [http://www.bgcb.org/]. Our goal is to raise $5000 for this charity and we would greatly appreciate your help. We have described below the charitable fund we are running for, which directs its donations in the form of college scholarships to needy recipients. We don’t think there is a better combination than providing funds for needy young people who want to attend college while at the same time knowing the two of us will be huffing and puffing our way through a 26.2 mile run. You can make your tax deductible donation online via our Crowdrise website at http://bit.ly/zsnWv0or send checks made payable to The Boys & Girls Club of Boston to The Retail Connection c\o Jessica Bass, 2525 McKinnon Street, Suite 700, Dallas, 75201.

The Myra Kraft Giving Back Scholarship Fund was established in 2003 by Myra’s four sons to honor her on the occasion of Robert and Myra's 40th wedding anniversary.  The Fund provides financial support for college to outstanding members of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB) who give their time and talents to the community and understand the importance of helping others.  Since Myra’s passing in July 2011, the Fund has grown significantly and will provide many Club members with critical financial aid for college for generations to come.

The majority of our fund’s recipients come from low-income communities where only a small percentage of adults have attended college.  In fact, 50% of these young people our members come from households with an annual income of less than $27,000. 

We thank you for your consideration of a donation to this great organization.

All the best,

Alan P. Shor & Jessica E. Bass
