Subject: Reception Planning for Philadelphia Meeting

Subject: Reception in Philadelphia

As many of you know, I have been planning a Wine & Cheese reception
in Philadelphia in connection with the ACS National Meeting, August
22-26, 2004.  Because of some contacts I have, I have been able to
secure any of three ideal sites - the restored Water Works site (the
first water works in the US, beautifully restored), Lloyd Hall (the
City of Philadelphia owned boathouse on boathouse row), or the
Atwater Kent Museum, the City's official museum. I have been able to
raise $600 on my own towards this event, but am now appealing to you
and your organizations for additional funds.  My plan is to have a
poster session honoring the history of chemical safety (perhaps
including some of our own members, past and present as part of this),
and would hate to have to make this a bare-bones event.

My goal is to raise $3000 for this event; I have contacted the ACS
Office of Meetings & Expositions, which has an individual with the
responsibility of putting together events and sponsors (nothing from
them), I have contacted three senior executives from Rohm & Haas
(headquartered in Philadelphia - no response), and joined the
Philadelphia Meeting Organizing Committee (hence volunteering for
organizing committee booth duty), all to no avail.

Can anyone help?  Would your organization like to be an honored
sponsor of this reception??  I promise excellent publicity - this
event will be part of the ACS registration process (hopefully free to
the first 500 registrants, with free tickets to sponsors).  THANKS!

Please let me know.....
