I know you probably will never even see this but I wanted to try my last ditch effort. I work for Heal the Bay and we have our upcoming awards gala next Thursday (our one fundraising event all year). Our musical guest flaked out at the last minute and we are scrambling to get someone to help us.
I am not writing on behalf of the event committee, I am writing to you on behalf of my co-workers and the 60 employees here at Heal the Bay. The one thing I want more than to have a successful event is a fun evening for my fellow employees. They work 50 hr work weeks, nights and weekends to help keep our beach clean and to help educate over 40,000 school kids who come through our Aquarium every year.
I want to make this event as fantastic for them as possible and we would be honored if you could take time out of your recording session to come help us out for 45 mins next Thursday evening.
I know you love the beach and so do we. If by any chance you see this or someone passes it along to you, please contact me at (310)-451-1500, x159 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and thank you for all that you do! (http://www.healthebay.org/donate/bring-back-beach-sponsorships )
