Dear Bahá’í Friends,

We are delighted to invite you (see attached flyer for details) to the annual fundraising dinner to support the National Fund on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at the Georgetown Clubhouse, 301 S. Prospect Avenue, Wood Dale, IL 60191.  Last year with your sacrificial efforts, this community was able to provide support to the National Fund.  This impressive outpouring is the surest way of relieving the distress and burdens of humanity during these challenging times.  Your monies generate efforts to bring receptive souls under the sheltering shadow of this Revelation.

Let us arise in that same spirit of unity, once again, in our efforts to provide the material means that our community needs to establish God's Kingdom on earth.

“Giving to the Fund…. is a spiritual privilege . . . of which no believer should deny himself. It is both a responsibility and a source of bounty. . . . The importance of contributing resides in the degree of sacrifice of the giver, the spirit of devotion with which the contribution is made and the unity of the friends in this service; these attract the confirmations of God and enhance the dignity and self-respect of the individuals and the community” – (The Universal House of Justic, August 7, 1985)

Please know how dear each of the friends is to our hearts and accept our prayers and gratitude for your efforts today and always. Do not hesitate to contact Richard Doering, (contact information in the flyer) if you have any question on this event.

We look forward to your participation at this special event.

                                                                  Loving Bahá’í greetings,

                                                                  Office of the Treasurer
