Request for Fundraising Benefit on Chinese New Year - February 10

I trust this email finds you well. My name is Dr. Stuart Shipe, and I am reaching out to you on behalf of the Florida State Oriental Medical Association (FSOMA). As a valued member of our association and a respected professional in the field of acupuncture, we appreciate your dedication to promoting health and wellness through traditional Chinese medicine.

With Chinese New Year fast approaching on Saturday, February 10, we are excited about the opportunity to celebrate this auspicious occasion. In light of this festive season, we are organizing a special fundraising benefit to support the initiatives of FSOMA. We believe that your expertise and commitment to the community make you an ideal candidate to participate in this event.

We would like to invite you to donate your time on Chinese New Year to provide acupuncture treatments to both your existing clients and the general public. We envision this event as an excellent opportunity to showcase the benefits of acupuncture while raising funds to support the valuable work of FSOMA. Your involvement would not only contribute to the success of the fundraiser but also help raise awareness about the benefits of traditional Chinese medicine.

Here are the details of the proposed event:

**Date:** Saturday, February 10, or a convenient time close to the Chinese New Year
**Time:** [Your Choice]

**Location:** [Your Office Location]

**Treatment Fee:** Your discretion.  (Although the contribution amount is always at your discretion, I would suggest $30.00 or more being consistent with current rates for acupuncture treatments.  All proceeds will go towards supporting FSOMA.)

We understand that your time is precious, and we genuinely appreciate any commitment you can make to this cause. Your participation will be acknowledged during the event, and we will promote your involvement through our various communication channels to give due recognition to your generosity.

If you are available and willing to participate, please let us know at your earliest convenience. Additionally, if you have any questions or would like further information, please feel free to reach out to us.
