A big thanks to everyone who came out last night to the Nisei Lounge for our in-person event! We raised $337 for Make-A-Wish, and we had a great time. I learned that bartending is actually really hard, and I am maybe a 40-grade prospect. Tops.
Thanks to your generosity this month, we’ve raised a little over $10,000 for Make-A-Wish, which means you’ve got me up to 38 hours for the Trade Deadline Blogathon, which kicks off bright and early on July 30. If you want the full 40 hours, though, we’ve gotta get that number up over $12,000, which is the cost of sponsoring two wishes for kids and their families.
The great news on that front? A generous BN’er wants to help put us over the top. He’s offer to match all donations made today and tomorrow up to $1,000! So every dollar you donate today and tomorrow is like donating two dollars!
So let’s get there, and watch me fade in and out of lucidity on Sunday and Monday for 40 straight hours of crazy Trade Deadline coverage! So just go here and click “Donate to this fundraiser”!
