Every year the California Lutheran University holds a silent auction fund-raiser.  And each year, they can count on The Car Wash Guys to pull through for them.  Here is one of the request letters, followed up by a thank-you letter for our donation.

Dear Mr. Winslow:

The Community Leaders Club of California Lutheran University will host its fourteenth annual auction on Saturday, October 30, 1993.   The auction, which is the Club's major fund-raiser for the year, consists of a dinner and an oral and silent auction.  All proceeds go to benefit the university's academic programs.

We thank you for your past donation of complete car washing and hope you will consider making a gift donation again this year.

We are looking for contributions to both the silent and oral auctions.  The list of gift ideas is endless: antiques, fine crystal, stereos, dinners, theatre tickets, getaway weekends, roller skates, furs, a hosted yacht party of office supplies are all wonderful examples of contributions to this fun-filled event.  We have enclosed a more extensive list of gift ideas for your consideration.

You may want to promote your business with your donation, such as two hours of tax preparation, setting up a will or trust, eye exam, private trombone lessons, flamenco dancing lessons or Spanish tutoring, etc.  You or your business will be recognized in the auction program which will be seen by hundreds of participants.  You may wish to make a cash donation which could then be used by the auction committee to purchase a gift.

I sincerely appreciate your consideration.   Your donation will greatly contribute to the success of our auction.  As you probably know, all gifts to the auction are tax deductible.  Please include the enclosed form with your gift, and don't hesitate to call our office, if you have any questions.  You may Fax the form to us at 805-493-3864.

Thank you for your generous support of California Lutheran University.  We hope to see you at the auction!

Sincerely,

Millie Murray-Ward

Dear Mr. Winslow III:

On behalf of the Community Leaders Club of California Lutheran University, I would like to thank you for your donation to our annual auction which is scheduled on October 30,  1993.  Your receipt is enclosed.

Your gift contribution helps to raise funds that will go toward the enrichment of the University's academic programs, which in turn will benefit the students on our campus.  Monies raised from previous auctions have been applied toward the purchase of computer hardware and software, video cameras, library books and scientific equipment.

Thank you for helping to make quality education possible for the students at California Lutheran University.  We hope you will join us at the auction.

Cordially,

Jerry Knotts
Auction Chair
