I am writing this letter as a board member and
Fundraiser Chair of SAWERA. We are a
non-profit, community based, organization that assists South Asian women and
children who are victims of domestic violence in Oregon. Our purpose is to
empower survivors of domestic violence in the South Asian community. We provide
emergency assistance with shelter, food, and clothing to women fleeing
violence. We also offer continued support, advocacy, long term goal setting and
assistance on the path to self reliance and sustenance.
Our Annual Gala serves as an excellent way to
connect with the community, offer our thanks for their continued support and to
help raise funds for the next year. This year, our 7th annual gala
is on Saturday Oct 26th at The Governor Hotel in downtown Portland.
The event has always been sold out and continues to
receive high praise from our patrons. Each year we host around 250 guests to an
evening of entertainment, dinner, music and relevant updates about the
organization and the issue of domestic violence in the South Asian community in
area. 100% of the proceeds raised during the evening directly serve local South
Asian women and children who are victims of domestic violence. To be able to
better serve our clients, we are soliciting you/your business to sponsor the
event. Sponsors will have a dedicated display space at the historic Governor
Hotel’s Heritage Ballroom, in addition to the printed ad space* in our event
program distributed to every attendee. We will also acknowledge your
contribution at the event and urge all our patrons to support your business.
There are three levels of sponsorship available for
