Hi [Invitee],

[Personal Note – Where have you seen them lately? Have they attended this event with you before? Have you worked on project together recently? Did you attend an event that they invited you to (quid pro quo asks can be the easiest)? If they are the type that will come for the networking opportunities – Highlight that this is great opportunity to do just that! Lastly, share with them why you are passionate about WCV.]

Because I know you value Washington’s environment and believe in acting to protect it, I wanted to invite you to join me at Washington Conservation Voters’ 27th Annual Breakfast of Champions on Friday, October 11th.

I hope you’ll join me to catch up over breakfast, network with Washington’s environmental-political community, and learn about WCV’s 2019 work and priorities leading into the election.

Again, the event will be Friday, October 11th, 7:30am to 9:00am at The Westin in downtown Seattle. Please check your calendar and let me know if you’re able to come. Tickets are $75 and can be purchased HERE.

Let’s join with WCV to make Washington’s environment a political priority – I hope to have you with us on October 11th!

Email #2 – A reminder to people who haven’t responded to your first invite

Hi [Invitee],

I know it’s hard to think about fall and Election Day in the middle of summer, but I wanted to remind you of my invitation to Washington Conservation Voter’s Breakfast of Champions event – Are you free and interested in attending with me?

The event will be on Friday October 11th, 7:30am to 9:00am at The Westin. Registration opens at 7:00am, the program will start by 7:30am. Tickets are on sale HERE for $75.

WCV staff is asking for all guest names ASAP so that they can move forward with planning, so please let me know if you’re able to attend and buy your ticket today.

I hope you’ll be my guest on October 11th!

Thank you,
