Dear reporter,

My apologies for the delay. Your request didn't make it to me until yesterday.

The bid was submitted by Columbus 2020, so we do not have that. Please talk to Irene Alvarez at 2020,<>.

I am checking to see if we have any third party contracts or marketing budgets. Because of the holiday, I may not get that information until Monday.

Thank you for your patience.
