Short post today as it is getting late. More news regarding the concert, Ten Oaks Project has confirmed that I can use their name in the promotion of my fundraiser concert to take place in October. Here's the message I sent them last year, I used a similar one this year but I don't have it anymore because I sent it through their website (I should have kept a copy somewhere...) Anyways feel free to use a similar approach if you ever have to contact a non-profit organization:

Good morning, 
I am sending this message because I would like to organize a fundraiser for the Ten Oak Project and I would like to check with you if it is ok for me to use your name in the advertisement of the event. The fundraiser will be a variety show concert at the University of Ottawa (Freiman Hall) and it will happen on December 18. The show will be free but with a suggested donation of 5$ per person. If you are interested, all the profits will go to your organization. I will take care of everything, you do not need to be involved if you do not wish to be. If you need more details about my project or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail at [...] or by phone at [...] (cell phone). French is my first language but I can speak English as well. Thank you and have a nice day!
I'm very happy that this is confirmed because we're one step closer to being able to start advertising! One of my friends who work for RCMP has informed me that they are interested in putting up an advertisement for the event in a youth newsletter, something like that... It's looking like we will have a LOT of people this year so I'm quite excited about it. Maybe I'll get one or two addicted to my blog :)
