Finding the FUN...For a Good Cause

Many years ago, songwriting genius Roger Miller came up with one of the most clever song titles ever written when he composed "The Last Word in Lonesome Is Me" - so it brings to mind the following:

Have you ever realized that the FIRST word in fundraising is FUN?

Most of us simply see the word FUND at the beginning of the word.....but really, many events revolve around some form of fun activity. At most fundraisers, people come together for an event which may include music, food, biking, dancing, or many other forms of entertainment. Most importantly....the money raised through such an event can bring joy and relief to the lives of both those who give it and those who receive it. I have been involved in many fundraisers over the years and can tell you that my family has benefitted personally...especially in the areas of cancer and cystic fibrosis.

You may have seen more fundraising events promoted on our website lately... because we strongly believe in the community coming together to make a difference in the lives of others. All of us will at one time in our lives either need a little help or know someone who does. So....we encourage you to join in the FUN that these events provide...and that make someone's life a little easier.
