Sample letter


Dear Mena ,

  Hope you’re in good health. I’m  writing this letter to offer you passes of Sir Elton John concert which is on 21st December 2019.

I’ve purchased concert tickets for me and my sister as we both are die hard fans of Elton . It’ll be held in Dubai Opera at 6pm which is located just next to the iconic Burj Khalifa . You’ll  be aware that my podcasts is full of his songs and never miss any of his concerts if it’s in our town.

Due to some unavoidable circumstances, we’ll not be able to attend the show. My boss has  just informed me that I’m going to be speaking at an international conference which is for two days starting from 21st December in Montreal. . Also, my sister is going to attend her friend’s wedding.
So, I’d like to ask if you’re interested to attend the concert. As I know, you’re also s great fan of this musician. If interested, I can handover the passes to you while leaving for the airport or you can collect it from my residence during the daytime.
Do let me know.

Best regards,



Written by anonymous
