   Dear Jacqueline,

I would like to purchase two tickets to the EWB banquet on Dec. 6 and
eight raffle tickets for the Kayak (preferably one of the winning
ones!). Your email didn't indicate exactly how to pay for the tickets,
so please let me know the process.

Also, the School of Engineering would be happy to pay for the airfare
and accommodation expenses for your speaker. Please see Karen Bernard
to arrange the financial details. A small acknowledgement for the
School's support in your program would be appreciated.

Best wishes for success on the event!
