Dear Sir or Madame,
Summer is fast approaching, as are the annual free Summer Concert Series and Olde Derby Day events on the Derby Green. The annual ten-concert series has become a favorite event for the Valley as it gives the community a chance to get together and enjoy the sights and sounds of a variety of music at the gazebo on the historic Derby Green. Olde Derby Day on June 30 will feature more than 40 craft and food vendors and last year's event brought more than 5000 people to downtown Derby.
In order for us to provide such a diverse and high quality schedule of performers like Johnny Maestro and The Brooklyn Bridge on Olde Derby Day, we rely on financial support from individuals, organizations and businesses in the form of concert co-sponsorships. We thank those of you who co-sponsored a performance in 2001.
We would like to offer you the opportunity to participate as a co-sponsor of a concert this year in honor of your organization or business or perhaps in memory of a particular individual. A certificate of appreciation will be presented on the night of the co-sponsored concert and the co-sponsorship will be advertised in promotional material.
The minimum co-sponsorship fee is $250 for a single concert. Please enclose a check to the Derby Cultural Commission along with the enclosed co-sponsorship form prior to May 28, 2002. Please call 736-1450 with any questions.
Thank you in advance for supporting cultural activities in Derby.
Randy Ritter, Derby Cultural Commission Chairman
