Dear Joe:

On behalf of the New Covenant House of Hospitality and the Advisory Board, I want to once again thank you for providing the wonderful vintners and your continued support for our 4th Annual Wine Tasting Event and for the work of the Soup Kitchen.

You assisted us in executing an exceptional event and raising in excess of $80,000, a truly unexpected amount in the current economic climate that we are all experiencing. Once again, this year's event was not only a financial success, but a social one as well and continues to bring us many new supporters.

Those of us on the Board received numerous positive comments from those who attended as well as overheard similar remarks throughout the evening. You should be extremely proud of the fine job you are doing for the neediest among us and we look forward to your participating in our 2004 event. Mark your calendar, it will be the last Friday of April - April 30, 2004

Best regards,

Marliyn N. Esposito,

Dear Mr. Gerardi

Thank you for helping make Chefs On Point a successful fund raising event for the Ballet School of Stamford (BSS). We appreciate your generous donation of time and resources, especially in light of the recent downturn in the US economy, which has been particuarly painful for the food service industry. Without your generosity, there would be no Chefs On Point.

Everyone had a great time Saturday night. We have received lots of great feedback on how wonderful the food tasted. We were requested and have sent follow up information and photos to the event to "The Stamford Advocate" and "Living in Stamford" magazine. We would be glad to send additional packets to your local papers. Your donation is helping us to fulfill our mission of providing the best dance education possible to every child in this community who is interested. The money raised at this year's event will fund, among other things, student scholarships, our community outreach programs "Dance for All", and our eventual move to a new facility.

In honor of Waldy Malouf, the original President of the Ballet School of Stamford and a major financial contributor, we are donating ten percent of our proceeds to the Windows of Hope Family Relief Fund. Windows of Hope is a charity set up to aid the families of food service employees who perished in the September 11 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

The Ballet School of Stamford is a 401(c) non-profit organization, so your donations are tax deductible.

Thanks again for your donation.

Dear Bill, Joe, and Bill, Jr.:

Thank you for once again participating in the Museum's annual Wine Tasting event and for helping to make this year's event a tremendous success. A record number of guests enjoyed the diverse array of silent auction items, the wonderful variety of fine wines your vendors supplied and a sampling of delicious foods area businesses generously donated.

All proceeds will support "Connected to the Community", a major new initiative including educational outreach and other efforts to serve the people of Fairfield County. The involvement and support of local community businesses such as your make events like the Wine Tasting possible. We simply could have done it without you!

Again, thank you for all of your hard work. Here's to a great year!

With warm regards,

Sharon Blume,

Dear Mr. Gerardi:

Thank you very much for your donation of the Stamford Wine & Liquor "Basket of Cheer" for the Ninth Annual Night of Fun & Games, which was held on November 6, 1998.

Your generous support has helped to make the Night of Fun & Games a great success. We're happy to report that we raised over $250,000 this year! The funds will help NHF support research in areas like gene therapy that hold great promise for a cure for hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

On behalf of all those who suffer from inherited bleeding disorders and those who will benefit from your generosity, thank you.
