Suggested Text For An Email Ad Solicitation


Dear kind people at ____________________!


My name is __________ and I'm a parent of ___ school-age kids in Brooklyn, NY. My children's K-8 public school, Brooklyn School of Inquiry (, has students from all over Brooklyn and lots of their families live very near your business.

PS 686 is holding our annual benefit gala on June 9, 2018. For this celebration we create a full-color keepsake Gala Program with ads from community businesses. Please take a look at last year’s Gala Program for samples of personal, business and class ads. These programs are beloved keepsakes for families and staff.

Would your business submit an ad to be included in our Gala Program? The money raised from the benefit supports programs such as library, chess, art, music, dance, science and gym. Families are very grateful for the support and can be loyal future customers.

Ads can be paid for and submitted easily at or you can mail in a paper form. The last day to submit an ad is May 25.

Thank you -- I’m a big fan of your business and I know other families will be too.
