Dear Ms. Vernet,

I am writing to invite you to a reception to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Foxtrot at 8.00 pm February 10th. As a regular and valued customer of ours, we would very much like you and a guest to be present on this special occasion for us.

We are hoping that around 200 people that we genuinely consider as friends of our club will be able to attend. As well as a special buffet, you will be able to enjoy a number of performances from some of the musicians that have helped to create the special atmosphere of evenings at The Foxtrot over the past five decades.

Please bring the enclosed invitation to show at the door and please call or e-mail us if you have any special requests for the evening. We look forward to sharing the special evening with you.

Best regards
Kathy Tayler
