A Couple of Events

Tomorrow evening (March 26) Hail Mary's Pub in Grayson will donate 10% of their profits to us directly. I believe it will be between 5-8pm. We have some great family and friends who are doing these fundraisers for us. St. Jude's is a charity hospital so all the medical costs are taken care of, but these funds are helping us get through these weeks without an income and we appreciate the effort and time that goes into supporting our family so well.

Another event is Thursday March 29 at the Moe's on Baxter St in Athens. This is the one right down from Jittery Joes. Moe's will be donating 20% of their profits to our St. Baldrick's event at the Blind Pig Tavern in Athens. This is the second area restaurant to do a percentage night for St. Baldrick's and an awesome show of support for funding research for pediatric cancer. If you plan on going you will need to print a flyer to present when you pay. This will ensure your funds go to our cause.
Last, but not least is the St. Baldrick's event itself. We have raised over $7000 for pediatric cancer and are confident that we can raise even more in the next few days. We are still looking for raffle items/services and volunteers to fill a few positions.
Here is a copy of the email our event coordinator sent in regards to those positions:

Hey Everyone,

Thank You all so much for joining the event and helping to raise money for this awesome cause. As the event gets closer we are trying to organize the volunteers and setup a schedule. We are going to need a great deal of help in setting up the event as well as task that will need to be done during the event and then the cleanup of the event. Please respond with your availability if you would like to fill one or more of the potions listed.

Setup Crew (Starts earlier in the day)
Stage Manager / Emcee (most be outgoing and talkative)
Event Ambassadors (General helper/Problem solver)
Raffle Coordinator
Treasurers Assistant (Help Collect Checks and Cash)
Welcome Table Captain and Assistants ( Help sign up new shavees)
Clean Up Crew (stays after the event)

If you are interested in helping in any of the above ways please respond with witch one or more roles you would like to help out with. If you have any other thoughts or ideas that might be fun and entertaining please do not hesitate to offer suggestions.

We are also looking for people that might be willing to help paint faces, nothing fancy just little stuff for the kids. If any of you know anyone or has any corn-hole or beanbag boards we are also looking these for a fun game to play while there.

On top of all of this we are also interested in having some live entertainment at the event if you know someone that might be interested please have them contact me to help answer any of there questions.

Thank You all for the help in support of this event and I look forward to hearing form you and seeing you all next weekend. Bring as many people as possible as Blind Pig will be donating a percentage of there proceeds that day to St. Baldricks.
