Events, shirts, etc

I found this press release on the LLS website. I hadn't been able to see it yet. It talks about how Dad is the largest single fundraiser EVER for the MOY campaign. I think that is pretty cool.,1&item_id=610534&cat_id=140

Speaking of which, thanks to the Perry County division of Ally's Army, and also many other people on our team who are raising money through friends and family, we are currently at $12,500 raised for the Light the Night Walk. How truly awesome especially in the midst of me telling everyone we could take a break from fundraising for a while. We have a ton of people signed up. If you are not signed up yet, please do so here: (it only takes a minute)

I believe we will have an Ally's Army tent at the event where you can check in, get LTN shirts, etc (just for our people!)

Also, I have had some questions about t-shirts. We would love everyone to have an "Ally's Army" shirt on for Thursday night. Here is what I have (limited quantities)

Adult Mediums that say "Ally's Army"

Adult XL and 2XL that say "Ally's Army Battles Cancer"

I have run out of all larges and also all youth sizes. If you would like any of the ones I do have, just shoot me an email at I will see what I can do to get them to charge, they are extra.

Finally, 3 more fundraisers/public events this weekend. Friday night my sister in law is having a jewelry party raising money for Ally's Army. (Thanks Tara.) Saturday is the big Poker Run. I put the flyer up earlier. Click here for details. (Thanks Lori!) Ally will be presenting the prizes on Saturday afternoon and it looks like the weather is going to be perfect. I believe our local radio station (WTUE) has been talking about it. And on Sunday we are attending the Community Blood Center picnic. They have asked Dad to speak and Ally to be example as to why we should all donate blood. We are living proof! Add our Light the Night Walk to the list and we are pretty busy volunteering our free time for a good cause.

Thanks to everyone who is supporting us. Especially all of you who are skipping your kids sports events, practices, lessons, work things, etc to come to Light the Night on Thursday. I know how crazy the schedule can be and it is a blessed night when everyone chooses to come together for our daughter. Thank you!
