2018 Ballet Folklorico Sponsorship Letter

Photo of Senora AlaridI’ve been persuaded to come out of FOLKLÓRICO retirement, again. For the past couple of years, my 40-year-old KIDS (ex-students) have been doing performances for charity at various locations in Albuquerque. In 2015, we raised $5,000 for Making Strides Against Cancer; and in 2016 and 2017, we raised $3,000 each year for scholarships for Del Norte High School (DNHS) students (where I taught for 30 years). The dancers are all DNHS graduates, from 1990-2006.

Now, we’re doing it again. On Friday, September 7, 2018, at 7:00 pm, Ballet Folklórico Alumni will perform in the DNHS Performing Arts Center. Also performing: Mariachi Tierra de Encanto (Director, Orlando Marquez).

$10.00 per person at the door or order online.

All proceeds will benefit the DNHS Alumni Association’s scholarship programs. Since 2013, we have awarded $93,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors.

To support this performance, we are seeking sponsors. Would your business be willing to sponsor our event? For $250 or more, you will be listed as a title sponsor, and your company name (and logo, if available) will be included on the program. Additionally, title sponsorship comes with four reserved seats for the performance.

PLEASE, help us send more DNHS students to college!

This event is being co-sponsored by the Del Norte High School Alumni Association (known as the AlumKnights), which is a 501(c)(3) organization (tax ID # 47-1665246). Please make checks payable to:
