Chara,

I write to ask your support for the Buffalo Feis (Irish for “festival”) celebrating Irish dance, music, language, and art to be held at the Hamburg Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 1, 2013. This is our 47th year, making the Buffalo Feis one of the oldest in the country! We expect over 1,250 competitors from throughout the US & Canada, but primarily from central and western New York and southern Ontario. Expenses for this type of major cultural event increase annually, and this year is no exception. The Irish Cultural and Folk Art Association sponsors the Feis; as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, we hope to have your help to keep the Buffalo Feis affordable for families, and provide you the opportunity to reach existing and potential customers. Please consider a sponsorship or an ad in the Feis Program Book, distributed to each participant to allow them to track the schedule and find competition locations. Any sponsorship above the $200 level will also be recognized on the Feis web page (www.buffalofeis.org) from time of ad placement through July 2013.
