Dear Friends, Community Partners, and Supporters,
Now in existence for 36 years, Delta House Life Development of Asheville, Inc. continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community. We hope that you will be able to take part in one or more of the many exciting events that we are offering this year and experience firsthand the pride we take in supporting our cause.
It is our mission to enhance and improve the lives of economically disadvantaged and underprivileged adults and youth by strengthening cultural awareness, education, health, well-being, and social equity in a diverse population for building a better community. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we would not be able to serve those in our community each year. Our Vision is to excel in education, the arts, cultural healing, health/nutrition, and enrichment programs in a diverse community for building a better society.
We ask that you commit to supporting our annual appeal by making a cash donation or purchase tickets for our yearly fundraiser, Soul on Fire: A Celebration of Heritage through Art, Culture & Music. This year our goal is $15,000, and we hope that you will be able to contribute. To meet our mission and provide services in our community, we rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Delta House Life Development of Asheville, Inc. is a registered nonprofit 501(c) (3) tax-exempt organization.
The art exhibition, dance, and silent auction will be an evening dedicated to offering a new narrative to the community about the power of one individual to make a change, forge community connections, and support youth all through the power of arts and culture. Join the Opening Reception to “My Soul Looks Back,” an art exhibit featuring the collected works of Mrs. Shirley Whitesides from over nearly 50 years. Then, dance the night away with Free Flow Band, enter into a raffle or silent auction for great prizes, and enjoy live African drumming by Imhotep. Join in this artistic celebration!
For contributing or purchasing tickets, you may use the following ways:
· Go to www.deltahseleaap21stcentury.com and click on DONATION to give or buy your tickets.
· ON THE OTHER HAND, mail your contributions to Delta House Life Development of Asheville, Inc., P O Box 1672, Asheville, NC 28802
· Contact members of Delta House Board or members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
Remember, former art students of Shirley Whitesides may purchase a ticket for the dance at $30.00 per ticket donation.
Please spread the word with your friends.
I hope you will join me for my art exhibition, My Soul Looks Back: A Reflection of Art by Shirley Walker Whitesides
Please RSVP with your attendance for the free Opening Reception and Art Exhibition to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before Wednesday, November 13, 2019. I need to give AB Tech Foundation a number of how many guests to prepare for the event. Attached is an invitation for the art show and reception as well as the flyer for the dance. For more information, call (828)230-9192.
Thank you for supporting Delta House
