Howdy Dr. Saslow!
My name is Sara Palacios and I am currently a Freshman Animal Science major here at Texas A&M, as well as a passionate advocate for the Fight against Cancer as my dad died of brain and lung cancer on January 31, 2008. On Friday, April 27, I will be participating in the Relay for Life in my hometown, New Braunfels, Texas, and the theme is "There's No Place Like Hope!"
I am emailing you on behalf of my team, whom are all Aggies and huge supporters of my journey here at TAMU! We are searching for someone to create a painting of Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz for us to put in our auction to raise money for the American Cancer Society/Relay for Life! I am wondering if you might find some time in your busy schedule to create such a piece of artwork! ...since it would be a donation from yourself, and TAMU Art Program we would, of course, give credit where credit is due by putting your information or the information about the Art Program at TAMU in our display, as well as the name of the donator (yourself) and where you are from (TAMU) on the back of the canvas, therefore giving a piece of TAMU Art program to someone.
I am, of course, accepting of a rejection to this request, as you are a busy individual with duties far more pertinent than this, but I do ask you to consider the good you are doing, and the positive impact you would be helping make on cancer patients and their families and support groups everywhere.
Thank you so much for your time and consideration of this request. If you have any questions at all, please give me a call at (210) 382 7475 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Once again, Thanks and Gig Em'
