A Day to Remember: Saturday, April 16, Washington, DC
It is hard to imagine that we are well into 2005 already. From all of us at PCRM I want to thank you deeply for the support you have given us over the years. It has been truly wonderful to see the creation and expansion of so many programs that improve the lives of animals and humans alike—thanks to your tremendous partnership in our work.
This year we celebrate our 20th anniversary, and we hope that many of you will be able to join us in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, April 16 to mark this occasion. We will have free educational sessions during the day, including a gourmet vegan cooking class, a media training session for doctors who would like help speaking to the press about our issues, and a wonderful technology hall where exhibitors will demonstrate the latest education and research tools that no longer use animals.
Our evening event is a celebration and black tie fundraiser at the beautiful Organization of American States building. We are incredibly fortunate to have Alec Baldwin join us as host. Proceeds for the event will help to support ongoing programs as well as launch some new work that will be unveiled that night.
For more information about the event, please visit our Web site at www.pcrm.org/gala or contact Debbi Miller at 202-686-2210, ext. 340, firstname.lastname@example.org.
We realize that many of you will not be able to join us in D.C., but we hope that you will continue to share in our critical programs throughout the year. We have many opportunities for you to partner in our work. We will continue to update you on campaign activity, and we encourage you to check out our Web site for updates and information about steps you can take to help advance our program work.
I’d like to remind you that financial support of our work is also critical to our success. Many members have chosen to keep us strong long into the future by including PCRM as a beneficiary of a planned gift, be it through a will, trust, life insurance, or annuity. If you would like more information about any of these giving options, please feel free to contact me.
May 2005 bring progress to our critical work—for the lives of many depend on our success.
