20070406 Support Granite House Rock Ball

January 29, 2007

Rock On!

Support the Granite House Rock Ball!

Dear Friend,

Get ready for a night filled with music, dancing and fun! On Friday, May 11, Granite House will host its first annual Rock Ball, which will be held at the Inn at Roop’s Mill. This great event will feature classic rock and roll, amazing food, and lots of fun surprises. As a friend of Granite House, we would like you to consider supporting the Rock Ball in a number of ways:

1. Donate an item to our silent auction. Your donation will be prominently displayed for the duration of the event. Your name or your company’s name will be featured in our event materials and on the Silent Auction bid sheet and in the event program, where up to 200 attendees will see it.

2. Attend the Rock Ball. Tickets for the event are $100 per person.

3. Be a sponsor for the Rock Ball to help decrease our overhead.

This ball will help support individuals and families with mental illness to have successful, satisfying and productive lives. Our clinical staff of psychiatrists, clinical social workers, nurses and licensed counselors has tremendous impact on the lives of our clients. Our rehabilitation and housing staff has helped those in need to make a fresh start since 1979—a start that has truly made a difference in their lives. We would like to extend these services to other folks in the community who desperately need our services but cannot afford them.

Our Rock Ball will specifically raise dollars for our “Charitable Fund”. The Charitable Fund has been created to help folks who cannot afford to pay their co-pay from their insurance plan or even have no insurance coverage at all, ie: the working poor. We believe strongly that mentally healthy people are more productive community members and that all people should be able to receive the care they need. All donations are tax deductible. Sponsorship levels are attached to the back of this letter.

The “Rock Ball” will become our annual event with dinner, dance and an auction. In addition, we will also be featuring a sale of our Consumer made art work. We hope that this event will be successful not only in raising funds for those who need it most, but also in shattering the stigma associated with mental illness.

For more information, please contact Laura Rhodes at 410-876-3007 x140. If you are interested in specific information about our programs, you can view our website at or contact us at 410-751-5970.

Very Truly Yours,

Spencer Gear
