Dear Business Owners & Friends,

My name is Dean Barron and I am a Gold Star Father, an Army Veteran and Chairman of the Maine Fallen Heroes Foundation. I am looking to raise $35,000 to help pay for a very unique memorial that will honor all 120,000+ Gold Star family members from Maine. These are families that have lost a loved one to war. Consider this as a memorial to honor them all for also paying the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms that you enjoy. A dedication ceremony is scheduled for 4/28/2018 in Lewiston.

This one-of-a-kind memorial will be the largest, most prominent memorial in Veterans Park next to the Gov. James B. Longley Bridge. Our proposal passed through and been unanimously approved by the Maine Military Community Network, the Lewiston-Auburn Veterans Council, and the City of Lewiston. You can learn more about this project by visiting our online donation page here.

I’m writing to you to ask you to support me and my fundraising efforts to make this memorial a reality. Would you be willing to contribute $1000 to help me accomplish my goal of honoring the sacrifice that Maine’s Gold Star families have made? I understand if this is asking for too much, but please consider what these wonderful people have sacrificed for you. Any size donation is greatly appreciated!

Your donation will go toward directly to the creation and construction of this amazing memorial.

As a token of my appreciation, I will place your businesses name and contribution amount on the memorial donor list on our website and in any press releases we send out to the media. I will also give your business recognition in any speeches that are given during the dedication, ground-breaking and unveiling ceremonies. In other words. I’ll attach the name of your business to this incredible memorial.

If you would like to speak further about the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument, feel free to reach out to me anytime at 207-229-0229 or send me an email via I’d love to answer any questions you have and give you more information.

Thank you in advance for your contribution. You have no idea how much it means to me to have your support.
