Subject: Domino Tournament in support of David Paulus
Hope the holiday season finds you and your loved ones well. The purpose of this email is to invite you to a fundraiser to benefit one of our own, David Paulus. As many of you know, David has been a lifelong prosecutor and a friend to us for many years. He has been a tireless and dedicated public servant and is currently the Director of the South Florida Money Laundering Strike Force. Recently, David was diagnosed with a brain tumor. As you can imagine, he and his family are now on a journey that is going to be not only physically taxing but also emotionally and financially draining.
We hope that you can join us on Friday, January 14, 2011 starting at 7:00 p.m. for a night of dominoes to benefit David and his family. All proceeds and donations will go to David. Details of the event are in the attached flyer. In the meantime, please keep David and his family in your thoughts and prayers.
Best wishes to all of you for a healthy and happy New Year. See you on January 14th!
Raul J. Chacon Jr.
