Dear Friend of Music at Eden's Edge,

The colorful and enchanting range of programming produced and performed throughout the year by Music at Eden's Edge is, and always has been, offered for free or at a very modest ticket price. We work hard as a non-profit to keep our annual operating costs to a minimum so that we can continue to offer an affordable and enjoyable evening of great music performed by excellent musicians, who must be paid fairly.

Almost half of our annual operating costs are covered by donations from our wonderful sponsors and  our favorite community arts foundations. What you might not know is that the remainder of the cost cannot be covered by modestly priced ticket sales. There is still a gap which needs to be filled to meet our operating expenses.

Once a year, in December, it is the donations solicited from our faithful audience that help us cross the finish line into the black again, to enable us to continue performing for you, our North Shore community, for another season. This December, our goal is humble. We are aiming to raise just $4000 to help close this year's gap.

Our goal is easily within reach if we can get just a little help from each of you. Though large donations are always fantastic, small ones help so much, too. Please consider spending just a few moments right now to send us what you can to help ensure that MEE will remain a vibrant and dependable part of your North Shore arts community in 2018 and beyond.

Your mailed check is the best way to assure that 100% of your donation makes it into our hands. If we have your mailing address on our list, hopefully you saved the appeal letter and return envelope we sent out late last month. If not, your check can be mailed to us at the following address:

Music at Eden's Edge
94 John Wise Avenue
Essex, MA 01929

With a shared love of great music,

Maria Benotti
