Comedy Night Fundraiser!
This Sunday, March 13, I will be hosting a comedy night fundraiser at Bunjo's Comedy Lounge in Dublin. This year we will have a professional magician/comedian, Timothy James, as the headliner along with John DeKoven and other great comedians. This is always a fun night - and all proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Tickets are $20 at the door, or by donation to my fundraising website. Bunjo's is at 6513 Regional St in Dublin (in The Willow Tree Restaurant). I hope to see you there!
What can I say - we're training for the Death Ride! Our distances are getting longer - we're consistently riding 50 - 60 miles, with lots of climbing. The last few rides have had 100 feet/mile of climbing - usually an indicator of a hard, mountainous ride. I had to miss the last team ride - I was actually there, but I had the kids with me. Their mom had gone out of town on business so the bike ride had to play 2nd fiddle for the day. It's a shame, because it's one of my favorite East Bay rides - doing lots of the great climbs through the Oakland hills. However, it's a long season and missing a ride or two is not a disaster.
My fund-raising this year got off to a very strong start. I'm only about 1/3rd of the way through my address book and we've already raised almost $1,000 (the total on the website does not include checks I've received, and several donors also will get matching funds donated by their companies). A great start, but not even 1/3rd of what I hope to raise. For everyone who has already donated, a hearty thank you! I hope the Comedy Night will put another big dent in the target, and I know everyone will continue to be as generous supporting me as I raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!
Please consider making a donation to support finding a cure for Leukemia & Lymphoma at my website.
