Artists on a Mission 12345 Mission Street Los Angeles, CA 90017 July 15, 2006 Ms. Eileen Grant, President Fun Art Foundation 4321 Art Support Street, Suite 111 Anytown, Anystate 11111 Dear Ms. Grant, The support that Artists on a Mission received from the Fun Art Foundation has helped convert the dream of building a Student and Parent Theater Project in South Central Los Angeles into a reality.
