The C Word …

A week or so ago, Kevin Donlan, our Marketing / Finance / Legal advisor and all around good guy, attended the American Cancer Societies – Relay For Life kick off event. I did not attend as I have been to quite a few meetings over the past few months and decided to take some time to relax. Ok, we all know I had Jimmy Buffet tickets.

Well, according to Kevin, these folks were really excited about what we have been doing and that made me feel pretty good. We were the top sponsor on the t-shirts and everything!

As you may or may not know, we were the new kids on the block and here we are being recognized by the Relay For Life folks as the local player in the fight against cancer! If any of you remember I started this as a thought, a party in a backyard and well look at us now. I used to say to our volunteers were the “C” students of fundraising. Well, because of you and your friends we are being recognized as a local force that raises money for the “C” word! People are starting to take notice. So give the volunteers an A+! I am extremely proud of what we have accomplished and the amazing people that show up at our events.

I never dreamed that this would become so important to those in the community. I had told a few of our volunteers that we will continue to support the American Cancer Society but will try to find ways to give back to the community as YOU are the ones that are showing up, raising money and spreading the word. I have said it before and I will say it again, it starts local. You made this happen, not me. I know it’s a cliché but I will say it time and time again.

Anything’s Possible.

You have made it perfectly clear to me that you care, you give and you support.

We are less than 30 days away folks …
