On Saturday, September 29th, I am being honored with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Hope Award during their annual Maxine Mesinger Dinner of Champions event. This award is beinggiven to me due to the hard work and dedication that BMC Software employees have shown this great cause through the years. I understand that you were the recipient of this award last year, so you know that the key to a successful event is the selection of the dinner committee, which is then used to build the invitation list and to build excitement for attending the event from local leaders. Of course, the key to successfully developing the dinner committee is the selection of the Chairman of the committee.
I would be honored if you would agree to serve as the Chairman of the dinner committee. You were the first name that came to mind and the best person I could hope for to assure a successful event. I am told that your personal time commitment would be very minimal. It would require your attendance at the dinner event on September 29th in downtown Houston. The dinner is typically from 7:00pm until 10:00pm,but the actual ceremony is less than 30 minutes long with some brief comments by you and then an acceptance speech given by yours truly. The primary obligation beyond attending the event would be to allow us to use your name and signature in sending out the invitations to the dinner committee members. I would provide you with a recommended invitation list. The MS team would make sure that your time and image would be well respected.
Thank you Jeff,
