IL-O'Fallon/62269-St. Baldricks-Saturday 3/31/12

by Skypanda

The Midwest Garrison was invited to participate in the St. Baldrick's event at the O'Fallon IL Fire Department on March 31, 2012. The Mando Mercs definitely invaded this one! It was great to have everyone out, and Jake even shaved his head. I raised $580 for this event. Jennifer (our contact) was beyond thrilled to have us there. Fredbird from the 2011 World Series Champions THE ST. LOUIS CARDINALS hung out with us for awhile. We took lots of pictures and enjoyed being there to help raise money for this good cause.

I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who came out! THIS WAS AN AWESOME TURNOUT FOR A SOUTHERN ILLINOIS EVENT!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D

Attendees:
Kristen Avara TI-7844 (coordinator)
Scott Holder TI-373

Thanks for the hours...
now...
just to make sure that I report correcty...

The MWG team netted $580.00

and the entire event raised $8,211.31 -
last question...
promise (and this has to do with funds qualifying as "indirect")
was the MWG contacted by th folks running this St. Baldricks to appear....
or did you decide to form a team and join in?
