Dear Sir/ Madam,
Please find attached an Invite for you to attend an Art auction on the 30th of August. The Art included in the Auction has been displayed in the C venue on Chamber Street for the month of August. The Art has been donated by Local Artists and all proceeds will go to LGBT Youth Scotland.
LGBT Youth Scotland is a national youth organisation working towards the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people in the life of Scotland. We provide a range of services and opportunities for young people, families and professionals in order to proactively assist with increasing awareness and confidence, in turn reducing isolation and intolerance. We support the network of LGBT young people and groups around Scotland and their representatives – the LGBT Youth Council. We were established in November 1989 by members of the LGBT community in Edinburgh and became a national organisation in April 2003.
The funds raised will pay for young people from across Scotland to attend our summer camp taking place in September. The summer camp is an annual weekend residential where 100 LGBT young people come along for 3 nights to take part in activities, workshops and youth elections for our youth council. This year the event is called ‘alternatives’ and it will allow young people to have a go at a whole bunch of alternative activities like cheerleading, hula hoping, yoga, tai chi, alternative film screenings and clothes customisation!
Any art that you buy will be wrapped up for you and be ready for you to take away at the end of the Auction.
Feel free to email me with any questions and it would be great if you could RSVP.
Please come along, you never know what might catch your eye.
