Tay Sachs Fundraiser - I'll Dance on the Bar

Hey everyone!  I thought I would post this so that anyone who is interested in attending would be able to do so.

As many of you know, my wonderful friends Julie and Ken Bihn have two great daughters.  Their oldest daughter plays soccer with my daughter and I have been so very blessed to have their family touch my life.  Their younger daughter Dakota has Tay Sachs disease and for anyone who is interested in learning more, please click on the link on the upper right hand side of the page.  

Ken and Julie are truly an inspiration to everyone around them and have raised a huge amount of money for Tay Sachs research and we all believe that there will one day be a cure for this disease.  Several months ago, Julie and I were brainstorming and came up with a great idea!  Why not have a fundraiser at a bar?  Sell tickets, eat and drink, have a raffle and dance.  So with the help of the Blue Moose Saloon in Parma, Ohio (where I once bartended), we have finally planned our event.  February 21st - a Saturday - from 6:30 - 8:30 we will be holding the fundraiser.  Julie and I (no offense Julie, but please put emphasis on the I), will be guest bartending (-=.  The tickets are 25.00 each and 15.00 from each ticket will be donated to the Cure Tay Sachs foundation.  The other 10.00 will go to the restaurant to pay for the food and the drinks.  There will be a reverse raffle as well and I think we probably have a couple of surprises up our sleeves for other things.

If anyone is interested in attending, please let me know.  I am aware that most of you are from out of town, but if any of you know people in the Cleveland area who would want to come, please encourage them to do so.  We have just under a month to sell our tickets and I am hoping that we get at least 200 people there which would be such a great thing.

If you can't go or aren't interested, I completely understand.  With everyone's lives so busy, it is understandable that you can't do it all.  

Please pray that there is no snow that day!

Also, if you get me in a REALY good mood, we might end up dancing on the bar which is a hit no matter where you are, so win/win.

Thank you all for your support of my friends and their foundation.
