An Invitation To Friends

Consider modifying the below template as needed to reach out and invite friends, co-workers, and family to join you at this year’s luncheon.

Dear Friend,

I would like to invite you to join me at my table at the 2018 Hope Builders Luncheon on Thursday April 19th at the Spokane Convention Center.

For 30 years, Habitat for Humanity-Spokane has empowered hard working, Spokane families to break the cycle of poverty through safe, decent and affordable homeownership.  The Hope Builders Luncheon celebrates community partners that have made homeownership a priority. The Hope Builders Luncheon was established to increase awareness and appreciation of the many contributions community leaders have provided toward Habitat’s mission.

One of the main goals of the luncheon is to raise awareness of the poverty and housing issues faced in our community. In 2016, there were 3,300 children living without access to safe, decent affordable housing. Lack of adequate housing has a particularly adverse effect on the academic outcomes of children, especially during early childhood.

The Hope Builders Luncheon has become Habitat-Spokane’s largest fundraising event. All proceeds directly benefit Habitat-Spokane’s homeownership services, including financial literacy, home construction, counseling and legal services for individuals and families needing a hand up and out of the cycle of poverty.

I know you will not want to miss this event! To register for the luncheon and for additional information, please go to habitat-spokane.org. Upon registration, please indicate that you are to be seated at my table.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to either myself, or the staff at Habitat-Spokane by phone at (509)-534-2552, or email cweedman@habitat-spokane.org

By joining me at this event, you and I will help make a difference in the lives of the individuals impacted by Habitat for Humanity.

Together, we can build a world where everyone has a decent place to call home.
