Sponsor and Buyer Letters

As a participant in the Suwannee River Fair you are required to write thank you letters to show/contest sponsors, as well as the buyer/buyers of your market animal.

Sponsor Thank You Letter

Think of a sponsor thank-you letter as a self-marketing tool and a critical component of your project. Your relationship with the sponsor does not end once the fair has banked their cash and purchased trophies.  It is the start of an ongoing exchange. An important part will be keeping your sponsor informed of how well their money is being spent and how much you appreciate them.  The start and finish of this is, of course, saying thank you. 

Buyer Thank You Letter

Probably one of the most important tasks you will have is sending thank you letters.

Remember — this person or business did NOT have to do this for you! 

If they purchased your market animal let them know you are grateful. Put yourself in their place: If you were the one who donated some hard-earned money, you would want someone to thank you!

Buyer’s Invitation Letter

If you want to be successful and get the best price for your animal, you must market yourself and your animal.  You need to find a buyer before the fair who is interested in your animal and you.  You simply cannot show up at the fair auction and expect buyers to want your animal.  You have spent a lot of time and energy raising and caring for your animal, now you need to spend a lot of time finding the right people to buy your animal.

Suwannee River Fair Latest News

To ALL 2024 SRF Exhibitors, Parents, FFA Advisors and 4H Leaders:

Hello Suwannee River Fair Exhibitors! We've had a great start to the 2024 fair and would like to share some important news, effective immediately.

SRF Animal Area #1

In order to maintain a clean, safe and honorable environment for ALL fair attendees, ALL animals must stay within designated areas. Animals are allowed in their respective barns and in the fenced area behind the hog barn.  The area where campers are now located is off limits. Signs will be posted and animals outside the designated area will be disqualified and asked to leave immediately. If you witness an animal in restricted areas, please contact an SRF board member, superintendent, office staff, or any SRF volunteer.

As a reminder, tents provide a great source of shade. Shade-cloth only may be used on sides to deflect sun and heat. The gate at the East corner must be kept clear for ambulance access.

SRF Animal Area #2

We are doing our very best to provide a great experience for our exhibitors and their families. Safety is extremely important for everyone who comes to exhibit, watch, spectate, and cheer on our youth! We look forward to a great 2024 Market Week!

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to any of us.

Thank you for your understanding!
