The Contour of Luxury Summer 2019 - Page 704

Dear Friend, On behalf of the Greater Los Angeles Chapter, the Guts & Glory Gala, and our Honorees, we welcome your support in becoming a partner in our mission to raise critical funding and awareness for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation. On Thursday, October 17th, we will be joining together at Sony Pictures Entertainment to continue the fight for treatment, and ultimately, cures for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). This year, we have the privilege of honoring Dr. Stephan R. Targan and Sheila and Andy Garb. Dr. Targan is the Director of the Cedars-Sinai Inflammatory Bowel and Immunobiology Research Institute. He has been instrumental in the strides made in treatment and care options for patients. Sheila and Andy Garb have been long standing supporters and leadership volunteers with the Foundation for over 40 years. With 1 out of every 100 people affected, chances are that someone in your inner circle, company, neighborhood or even your family is touched by one of these diseases. You have a unique opportunity to partner with the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation to make a difference in the quality of life for patients and their families suffering from these diseases. Enclosed is a proposal that outlines levels of support and benefits that you and your company will receive as sponsors of our event. More details about the event are also enclosed. In 2018, we held our inaugural Gala that raised over $730,000! Please help us surpass last year’s fundraising efforts by becoming a sponsor at the Guts and Glory Gala. Your investment will help further awareness of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to raise funds to support critical research programs, education and support programs, including Camp Oasis, our summer camp for children 7-17 years of age who have IBD. Should you have any questions or comments regarding this proposal, please do not hesitate to contact our Development Director, Nichole Mendoza at (646) 847-5140 or nmendoza@crohnscolitisfoundation.org. Warm Regards, Melissa Mitchell Guts & Glory Committee Chair
