united-wayI am writing this letter to tell you about the upcoming Climbing 4 Dollars event that will be taking place in Boulder Colorado on September 18-19 to support the United Way of Manatee County. At this point we have 9 climbers signed up and on the 19th we will be climbing the First Flatiron overlooking Boulder. The approach hike is one hour over difficult terrain followed by 1000 feet of near vertical rock climbing. Most people would consider this an extreme way to raise money. I feel that it will help to make people aware of the need in our community and give folks a way that they can help to be a part of the movement to improve our quality of life here.

unnamedI know that you believe in our community and want to see the continued growth and prosperity we are experiencing here in Manatee County. I believe that as business people here we earn our living by the relationships that we have with the residents of Manatee County. At Suncoast Gems we feel it is our obligation to give back to the community and to help to improve our quality of life.

With that thought in mind I am asking you as a personal favor to help me to make this fundraising event a big success. My goal is to raise $10,000.00. We have spent over $4000.00 ourselves to fund this and with your help, I know it can be a huge success.

I am enclosing a link to the brochure detaining the climb and how you can help and also a link to the Climbing4dollars website where you can learn more about the event and make a donation to the climber of your choice.

unnamed1No donation is too big or too small. We would consider it a favor if you could help and we could add you to the list of our friends that are helping to make a difference in our community.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review this. We look forward to seeing you soon. To Make a Contribution click below:
