Dear Car Wash Guys,

Because of your generous support of California Lutheran University, the 1995 auction sponsored by the Community Leaders Club raised more than $40,000 for the University's academic programs.

This year's auction will be held on Saturday, November 2, 1996, at the Hyatt Westlake Plaza in Westlake Village.  With your support, we can make the 1996 auction even more successful than last year.

We sincerely thank you for your support of the auction and hope you will increase your participation this year by contributing an auction item or service.  We have enclosed a list of of possible donations, but please do not feel confined to our suggestions.  As a donor you or your business will be recognized in the auction program, which will be distributed to hundreds of participants the evening of the auction.  If you prefer to make a cash donation, the funds will be used by the Gift Gathering Committee to purchase additional auction items.

Finally, you may wish to take advantage of advertising in our auction program.  Please see the enclosed information detailing ad sizes and prices.

We look forward to your support of the auction.   As you probably know, auction gifts may be tax deductible.  Please include the enclosed form with your donation and retain the gold copy for your records.  You may fax the form to us at (805) 493-3864.  We will be happy to pick up large gifts within a 30-mile radius of the University.  Please keep in mind that the deadline for donations is September 27, 1996.

Thanks you for your generous support of California Lutheran University.  If you have any questions, please call the University Relations Office at (805) 493-3151.  We look forward to seeing you at the auction!

Sincerely,

Mille Murray-Ward
Chair, Gift Gathering Committee
