Dear Local Business Owner,

Perhaps by now, you have heard of the Phoenicia Turkey Trot, which is an annual 2.4 mile fun run, ramble, walk or wobble to be held on Saturday, November 25, 2017 at 10 :00 AM.  We have chosen a loop through and around the hamlet of Phoenicia to celebrate our community, promote health and unity, as well as to raise money for a good cause! 

The proceeds from this year’s event will go to benefit Shandaken Parks and Recreation.   Last year we had over 300 participants and we are hoping that this event will continue to grow! 
This letter is a request for your support.  As the first 100 registrants receive a free t-shirt, we are looking to offset that cost and allow more of the revenue generated by registration to go directly to the Parks and Recreation.  The back of the t-shirt is reserved for sponsors’ names which will also be posted on our website at  We announce sponsors at the start of the race and encourage all racers to support the local businesses after participating.
Should you be inclined, please write a check to the Shandaken Parks and Recreation Board for $100.00  by August 15th, 2017 and mail to:  Patti Rudge, 50 Brown Rd., Big Indian, N. Y. 12410.
Thank you in advance for anything and everything!
