Sample 1 – Party Cancellation Letter

To: friends@gmail.com

Subject: Party Cancellation

Dear All,

The forthcoming party, which was scheduled to take place on [DATE], had been cancelled. It is with great difficulty that I write this letter informing all of our friends and family of this decision. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and your family.

The decision to cancel this party is best for all involved at this time. I recognize the fact that most of you have already made arrangements by re-organizing your calendars and purchasing items for the party. I want to ask for forgiveness for the trouble that I have caused you.

It was so nice for those of you that sent party gifts in advance. Since the party is cancelled, I will be sending the gifts back to all of you within the next two weeks. Again, I sincerely apologize for bothering you with our party preparations and am sorry that things didn’t work out.

Sincerely,

Your Name
