Dear Ms. Fenton,

     Thank you for your invitation to your Gala Honoree Fundraiser Event on Monday, October 15, 2012 at the Vanderbilt Suites in the Met Life Building. While I would very much like to attend, I deeply regret that due to a personal long standing commitment I will not be able to attend this prestigious Fundraiser. I would also like to congratulate you on receiving Proclamations of Honor from many of my distinguished colleagues. Needless to say, I sincerely appreciate your dedication and commitment in scheduling such a momentous affair.

     Promoting awareness to the needs of children with disabilities is an honorable mission that has contributed to the success of the Fenton Love-All Foundation. Your services such as the Fine Arts program to schools, hospitals, and clinics that support the education of indigent/disabled children provides our community with the necessary tools to build a stronger future for disabled children. Your historic fundraiser will surely be a blockbuster event. Many children experience social, educational difficulties in their fight against life-threatening medical conditions. The mission to find a cure for pediatric cancer, diabetes and other life threatening medical conditions must be a unified endeavor with support from all branches of our community. I applaud your hard work in organizing this life changing event and combating challenges that affect our children.

     Again, thank you for your invitation. To keep up with my work in Washington D.C. and in the district, visit my website, http://rangel.house.gov/ and please know that you can continue to count on my strong support.
