    Tomorrow, against the owner's wishes, I am hosting a fundraiser for a little guy that has a laundry list of medical issues. We are trying to raise $2000 to help him and Mom go to Florida before he has surgery that will probably leave him a paraplegic...

    Have the town FD and County SO showing up, games, food and a last minute DJ!


    I'm giving all but $20 ( to cover electric) to the family....



    Please pray for a sucessful day!

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.

    Good job! Will be praying.

    Thanks guys!

    This is my first time doing this and I really want to help these people out. Trey has done nothing but recover from surgery, hjs whole life! Imagine 11 years old and 15 trips to the OR, hundreds of visits for more pain and discomfort...


    Trey and Mom need some time to be a family. I pray this will get them that time

    Very cool Apache. It seems like people in situations like this are always the ones you hear "they have shown grace" and "they're so strong to handle something so difficult" about. Tough situations bring out strength in people they didn't know they had.

    Sometimes people really just need a hand to hold and a shoulder to cry on.. and maybe a hug to return. Bless you for being a part of their solution.

    We came up with about $500 dollars... Dammit

    Spotty showers, while welcome, didn't help turnout.

    Oh well, they are $500 closer to their trip...

    Still, you did a great thing, and there is time to get raise more.

    Thanks Ody. I'm bummed it didn't go as well as hoped, but you're right, there's still time
