Dear Dr. Bonner,

On behalf of the Jazz in the Garden Steering Committee, the National Kidney Foundation of Northeast New York, and most importantly, the patients and families we serve, we are pleased to have this opportunity to thank you for your support. The contribution you have provided is greatly appreciated and will have a tremendous impact on the patient and family programs and services and community awareness projects the National Kidney Foundation of Northeast New York provides to its 24 county constituents.

Jazz in the Garden is sure to be a fun, festive event. A caricature artist, a psychic reader and fantastic silent auction items will entertain you. There will be ample time for visiting with other guests, enjoying the entertainment, and when the time comes when you are tired of talking and walking, sit down and listen to the music. Jill Hughes and the Jill Hughes Group will keep your toes tapping and WNYT New Channel 13 anchor John Gray will keep the energy high. Listen to Jazz in the Garden media sponsor, "Smooth Jazz" 104.9 for the lastest tunes and news in the jazz world.

Please note that we have you registered for 13 tickets. We look forward to seeing you at the Desmond Hotel on Sunday, March 10, 2002. Feel free to contact April Whetter with National Kidney Foundation of Northeast New York at 800-999-9697 if there are any questions.

With thanks,

Sue Millstein, CSW-R
JAZZ in the Garden Committee Chairperson
