This event has raised over $10 million in its 19 years and thanks to you, more of the funds raised have gone directly back into the cancer center to help patients. As a result, we will be able to continue to offer vitally important programs and services to the community, such as cancer education and prevention, early detection, patient support services and clinical research. In addition, your support makes a significant difference in
the lives of those facing the challenges of cancer by helping to fund technologically advanced programs, services and equipment, which in turn enables our physicians and staff to provide the highest level of care.

Working with the staff at MARCOAhas always been an easy and pleasurable process. Everyone is so friendly and nice to work with. Our projects are printed with the highest quality and care and the final product is always fantastic. With the help of MARCOA, we have created many pieces that we are proud to use at our event.
We are so thankful for such a great relationship with MARCOA and look forward to many more wonderful years of working together.

Thank you,

Dear Ms. Allen,
During these challenging economic times, Voices for Children relies more than ever on the support of generous individuals like you to sustain our operations. Based on the recommendation of Nelson DiMele, your gift of twenty gray desk chairs will allow us to direct more of our financial resources to recruiting, training and supervising volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs). CASAs work with our community's most
desperate children: foster youth. Abused and neglected by their parents, these innocent children enter an overwhelmed and overburdened system; they often feel scared, alone and confused. This is especially true now, when cuts to the state's budget are severely impacting the foster care system's ability to serve abused children.

Armed with a court order that allows them access to all of the records of the children to whom they are assigned and to the court hearings where crucial decisions are made about the children's lives, CASAs ensure their case children get what they need. For some children, having a CASA means finding the perfect "forever family" and starting a new life. For others, it means getting to play soccer... for the first time. For some children,
having a CASA means finally getting the help they need to succeed in school, and for others it means going home to parents who have received the help they needed to become safe and loving parents. This is what makes the work of Voices for Children's CASAs so unique....and so critical. CASAs get to know their case children on a personal level and advocate for them in a very meaningful and powerful way.

On behalf of the staff and CASAs who strive to improve the lives of abused children, and most importantly on behalf of the children who ultimately benefit from your generosity, we thank you for your support of our agency.

Warm regards,

Sharon M. Lawrence

Dear Jayla,
We cannot thank MARCOA enough for their amazing support throughout the years to support STAR/PAL youth programs! MARCOA has truly been instrumental in the success of STAR/PAL's Annual "Superheroes for Youth" Celebrity Waiter Luncheon, an event that raises funds benefiting educational, recreational and
athletic programs for inner-city and underprivileged youth in our community. MARCOA continues to demonstrate what a community-minded business they are by donating their printing services and materials to nonprofit organizations like STAR/PAL, in efforts to improve the San Diego community. MARCOA and their
staff have shown STAR/PAL such incredible generosity and support, not only donating printing materials and graphic services, but always demonstrating the utmost courteous and efficient professionalism on every project they do!

STAR/PAL is a unique nonprofit organization bringing law enforcement officers and youth together today, to build safer communities tomorrow. STAR/PAL provides free programs with law enforcement volunteers to thousands of youth within the city and county of San Diego all throughout the year. These programs
include homework assistance, crime prevention programming and other opportunities otherwise not afforded to them.

The strength of the STAR/PAL organization is based on our many wonderful volunteers, partners and supporters like MARCOA, who are willing to invest in the future of our children. It is has been an honor for STAR/PAL to have the support of MARCOA since 2000, helping us make a difference for thousands of under-served youth in San Diego!

Again thank you!

Christine Reed
Director of Corporate & Public Relations, STAR/PAL

Dear Scott:
We wish to extend to you our most sincere thanks for your support of our Tenth Annual Breath of Life Gala. You generous donation of all the printing not only contributed to the success of the Gala, but set the elegant and professional tone we were hoping for.

In the end, the Well Healed Gala raised over $300,000 towards a cure for cystic fibrosis, a truly impressive amount in any economy.

There are so many precious individuals and families that are anxiously waiting on a cure.
And thanks to your support, we are one step closer. Thank you.

Gratefully yours,

Maria Olson
