Dear Latina Leaders Supporter,
We cordially invite you to become a sponsor of Latina Leaders of Kern County and the Latinas Leading the Way Awards and Installation Dinner to be held on July 21, 2018 at the Bakersfield Marriott at the Convention Center at 6:00 p.m. As a non-profit organization, Latina Leaders of Kern County (LLKC) was developed with a mission to foster leadership, identify and develop opportunities for Latinas, and to influence key issues affecting our community.
We are the only organization in Kern County of its kind, serving Latinas in professional leadership development through our Latina Leadership Institute (LLI), offering a nine month youth leadership program to more than 150 high school Latinas every year, as well as cultural enrichment and informational workshops for the community throughout the year.
The annual Latina Leading the Way Awards is our capstone fundraiser. This year we celebrate the 18th annual Latinas Leading the Way Awards event where we will recognize three professional women who are making a mark in our community. We are honored to award the following women: Beatris Espericueta, Executive Director, Kern County Farm Bureau Sonia Rodriguez, Chief Operating Officer, Parent Institute of Quality Education (PIQE) Lillian Tafoya, Board of Trustees, Bakersfield City School District (BCSD).
Your partnership will demonstrate your support and highlight the achievements of these Latina leaders in our community. Please join us in honoring these women at this special event. We thank you for your time and consideration and trust that our vision of fostering leadership in Latina women will align with your organization’s mission and values. Enclosed is our event sponsorship package. LLKC is a 501c3 tax-exempt organization, making your commitment tax-deductible. Please return the enclosed information by June 30, 2018 to assist us in our planning arrangements and proper recognition of attendees and sponsors.
Again, your support will allow us to continue our efforts to accomplish our mission and improve Kern County through our programs and services. We thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely, LATINA LEADERS OF KERN COUNTY
