Dear Friend of the USS Kidd:
I’m Mark Tullos, Interim Director for the USS Kidd Louisiana Veterans Museum in Baton Rouge and next month we are hosting our third annual Spirit of ’45 dance and museum fundraiser sponsored by the Belle of Baton Rouge Hotel and Casino! The free dance and dinner will be held on Sunday, August 14, 2016 from 4 – 7 p.m.
We are raising funds to support the mission and programs of the USS Kidd. The museum does not receive any state support and relies on private contributions and foundation support to keep our doors open and the historic naval ship preserved as our city’s top visitor attraction. Our event is expected to draw over 200 supporters and participating businesses will be prominently featured in our event program. In addition, each program contains a “support our supporters” flyer listing contact details for these businesses.
Can you help us out with a donation of a product or service from your business? It will greatly help the USS Kidd Louisiana Veterans Museum continue sharing the stories of service and sacrifice by Louisiana veterans. All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. Your donation can be something as simple as a gift certificate to your business or an invitation to share lunch with you. Donation form for silent auction items. Simply fill it out, then call or email us and we’ll handle everything.
Thank you for your consideration of our request to support the USS Kidd Louisiana Veterans Museum.
Mark A Tullos, Jr.
Interim Director/Auction Chair
