Walter E. Fauntroy Birthday Celebration Sat. March 13th

Invitation Letter from SCLC

Dear Friend,

In the second half of the 20th century, probably no other person has left a more indelible footprint on the landscape and blueprint of Washington DC History ...than our own Honorable Rev. Dr. Walter E. Fauntroy, (Congressman, Ret.)

Our Birthday honoree, has been at the core of every Civil and Human rights effort during this time span. A DC Public School Graduate, matriculated to Yale University..upon graduation from Yale..., returned back to serve and minister in the valley, from the very neighborhood he grew up in, and subsequently led the transformation of the Shaw community, building and providing jobs, for the least of these. Locally, Nationally, Globally, his record speaks for itself " know his story, and know his song!"

As a respected leader, among this city and most certainly your constituency...I write to ask you to pause and consider "as we open the floodgates of our memories" and share with us in this "Moment in Time" the 77th Birthday Celebration of our friend and brother Walter E. Fauntroy. on Saturday, March 13th.

RSVP with a Sponsorship, Table, and Individual Seat, information. We have followed up on the Ad Packet, for your company's visibility, for this historic occasion. Finally, if you can not attend... please consider to forward your table/ticket to some deserving members of your constituency ...who would treasure this momentous occasion on Saturday, March 13th!
