Dear family and friends,
I am writing to you to ask for your support of The Golden Gate Men's Chorus, an organization of which I have been a proud member since 1996 (I tell people I joined right out of high school, but no one ever seems to believe me). As GGMC, we have dedicated ourselves for over 30 years to bringing high quality performances of men's choral music to audiences in the SF Bay Area and beyond.
By contributing to our annual campaign, you are helping bring more choral music to more people. Your donation provides funding for new commissions, scholarships for lower income chorus members, concert venues, guest artists, production and marketing costs and collaborations with other arts organizations. In just this year alone we will be jointly performing with Peninsula Women's Chorus, Singers Marin, the SF Choral Society and the Harvard Glee Club.
And, in addition to all that, I want to share with you some really exciting news: in July, 2014, GGMC will be traveling to Riga, Latvia to participate in the World Choir Games! This is an ambitious undertaking. Many of us will be paying our own way to Riga, but your donation will help ensure that we have the financial ability to bring every member with us on the trip
So, I'm asking each of you now to consider becoming part of our GGMC community by making a tax deductible contribution at whatever level you're comfortable, $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or more. Many of you have supported GGMC in the past and all of us are grateful for all that you've done. The money that you give helps keep music alive, making the world a better place for us all.
