Dear Business Manager,
The Charlotte Civic Orchestra sells advertisements in our concert programs. It is for a good cause: The Charlotte Civic Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer organization that has been playing for more than 30 years in the greater Charlotte area.
There is always a lot of buzz and interest in the the upcoming concerts, so we hope you will consider joining us to hear the music. Our concerts attract a diverse audience, but our core following is mainly upper middle-class clientele. It is a captive audience and we only have a few short pages in the printed color program, so they will surely see the ad for a long duration. Coupons, or other incentive, may help generate interest in your business or a graphic and slogan.
