Nonprofit cultural organization having a summer event next week with half-hour auditorium time (on screen and live program) then move to restaurant/bar for cocktails...with the friendly "ask" to 50+ people. We have the one-page backgrounder all set. Need help with super-short text for a small-format giving reminder to have on tables and hand out. Perhaps a 4"x6" picture postcard with brief information on the other side? What's the most effective way to state the request/reminder in an appealing way? Just the contact information or is that too brusque? Examples?
