As a member of a charity society you have organized a fund-raising dinner for the society.You want to invite a well-known author to give a talk at the dinner. You know this author rarely does such a thing; so, you are a little hesitant as you phone to invite him. You say:
A) I'm sure you'll agree to join us at our fund-
raising dinner, won't you?
B) As the dinner is for charity, I've been wondering
if you would be so kind, just this once, as to
address the guests.
C) I know you're a great speaker at charity dinners,
so can I count on you to come to ours?
D) Please let me know in advance the topic of
the talk you are going to give at our charity
E) You do realize, don't you, that the dinner is
being given in aid of charity. Your presence at
the dinner would attract more people.
The key is B, if so, why a well-known author would be so kind just this once? Does he make trouble at the dinners?
Rather than charity society, say charity or charitable society.
