Dear Albany friends,

I need your help! I was asked to be a model for "Rock Your Style," a fashion show fundraiser for Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region, and after hearing about what this incredible nonprofit does, I set a personal fundraising goal of $1,000, which will allow 10 weeks of the program "Dancing With Our Elders" - a weekly dance instruction and movement class for senior citizens. In 2014, this class flashed-mobbed the Trinity Alliance Gala with a performance of "The Wobble."

I am hoping you will make a donation, of any amount, to my campaign, so I can achieve this goal! You can make your tax deductible donation online, using a credit card of your choice, at: https://fundraiser.processdonation.org/Fundraiser/donate.aspx?fid=35I5CH9G65.

Trinity Alliance is a local human services non-profit organization who’s mission is to empower people for a brighter future by providing services to the community that supports and promotes healthy families, adults and children. This is an organization that is dedicated to improving the neighborhood as a setting for family life, contributing to health and well-being, and promoting education and employment as a means of self-development. You can find out more at www.TrinityAllianceAlbany.org.

I thank you for your help, and look forward to strutting my stuff on the runway! Don’t worry...I’ll post lots of photos for the world to see!


Sincerely,
Jolevette Mitchell
"Rock Your Style" Model, 2015
