Well, I was hoping to have some good news to share with you today about the date for our fundraiser, but we're still waiting. I've got a really good lead for a potential venue, but nothing is set yet. The headmaster of the school will be back in the office next week, so we're really hoping to have a date pinned down next week. I was hoping for this week, but I realize everyone is on their last summer vacations before school starts in just a few weeks. All of the "fun" things for the day are really starting to come together, but, of course, we have to have a venue before anything can happen. As soon as we know anything I promise to post here and we'll need your help to start spreading the word.
We are also talking about having a softball tournament here in Nashville to help raise money. Lots of ideas...we just need to make them all happen so that this grant can be a success! Hopefully next post will have our date and location set.

we're still here and still working.

Hello all. We are still here and we're still working on our fundraiser. I've emailed a couple different schools and we're waiting to hear back from them on a location to have the fundraiser. We're tossing around a few different ideas on what the day will include. We started with a walk in the afternoon with food, inflatables, music, etc. Now we are tossing around the idea of a walk/run in the morning. The latest thought has a 3 part option. You pay an entry fee to participate and you can either walk/run 1 mile, 2 miles or 3 miles. Your choice. The entry fee may be different per amount you walk/run. We may give everyone the option (not requirement) of in addition raising money per mile they run, or something. Then maybe after we'll have a "fun day" where people can come, eat food, play on inflatables, listen to music, face painted, bid on silent auction items, etc. (all for donations of course). Anyone out there have opinions? We want to include as many people as possible because we want this to be fun, but most importantly, this is a fundraiser and we want to raise as much money as possible. Don't forget to buy your t-shirts and remember to check the size chart while purchasing as the shirts are running small.
