We are contacting you because our friends and family are hosting a trivia night/silent
auction benefit to be held February 27, 2010 at the Granite City Township Hall in
Granite City, Illinois. The proceeds will benefit the Adam Zimmer Memorial
Scholarship and the Lindsey Arnold-Zimmer and Riley William Zimmer Memorial
Scholarship that will be held in an endowment fund at the Southern Illinois University
of Edwardsville, Illinois.
Our son Adam and his wife Lindsey and their unborn son were tragically killed by a
drunk driver on February 21 2009. Both Adam and Lindsey were graduates of SIUE.
In Adam, Lindsey and Riley’s memory, we would like to benefit future college
students. Our goal is to raise $13,500 for both scholarships to completely fund the
$15,000 principal requirement for the endowment account at SIUE. The endowment
will remain at the University forever, which means there will be scholarships awarded
every year hereafter.
We welcome any donations in the form of cash, gift certificates, products, or services.
There will be a silent auction and several raffles; therefore anything you or your
company can contribute would be greatly appreciated.
Your tax-Deductible contributions can be made to The Siue Memorial Scholarship
Fund. Please mail donations to the address listed below. Or you may contact us
personally to make other arrangements.
We sincerely appreciate any contribution you can make towards this worthy event.
With the help of generous supporters like you, we hope to provide funds to students
in need to honor Adam, Lindsey and Riley’s memory.
Thank you for your time and generosity.
