We are getting close to this year’s shot event down here in South Florida!
Besides all of the fun and getting to see everyone, an important part of the event, in my opinion at least, is that it is also a charity fundraiser. The cafe(s) are still finalizing which of their local charities they will choose for the official event. It’ll probably be a local Children’s Hospital.
The unofficial pre-party charity will be in honor of Andy Juhl, Jr. and will benefit the Vitas Hospice Charitable Fund.
If you have any Hard Rock Cafe items that you can donate, the proceeds will be going to a good cause. Please keep donations to Hard Rock items (shot glasses, pins, bears, t-shirts etc. – preferably new or valuable) or collectable shots of value. If you have access to high value items such as plane tickets, hotel stays, etc. then please contact me. I am looking to set up some silent auctions, live auctions and raffles. Whether you are attending (or unfortunately unable to make it), you can send any Hard Rock Cafe donations in advance for the charities (side note from Denise: address previously listed here has been removed as event is over – thanks to everyone that donated items!).
So please look thru your Hard Rock collections and send in those extra shots or pick out some good ones to raise some good money for a charity in an auction. If you are sending something in advance, it would be helpful to send me an email of what you are sending so that I can confirm I received it. If you are donating items in person at the event, please let me know with an email as well so that we know what we’ll have and can have it organized.
I hope to be able to send out an email in advance of the event to let people know what they can expect in the auctions – stay tuned for more info!
