Make A Wish Fundraiser

Thank you for all the birthday wishes for our 16 year olds!  It is also good to hear many of you will be at Cold Stone Creamery Thursday which will benefit Make A Wish.  A Public Relations Coordinator from Kahala Corp, which is the parent company of Cold Stone, sent me an email letting me know that some of their other restaurants were also hosting giveaway events this week between 5:00 and 8:00 pm, which will also benefit Make A Wish.  If you live near any of these restaurants,  here is a great reason to go out to eat this week.  Below are the give away signature items at each restaurant in exchange for a goodwill donation to Make A Wish.  Make A Wish Stars will also be sold throughout the month of September as part of the effort to raise money for Make A Wish.  As most of you know, Make a Wish grants wishes for children with life threatening medical conditions, such as Kelly's.

• Tuesday, September 23 – Blimpie – 3 inch Turkey sub www.blimpie.com

* Not valid in Blimpie locations within Hess convenience stores.

• Wednesday, September 24 – TacoTime – small order of MexiFries www.tacotime.com

• Thursday, September 25 – Cold Stone Creamery - a choice of two 3-ounce ice cream Creations:

• Friday, September 26 - Great Steak & Potato – small order of Great Fries www.thegreatsteak.com

Kelly has labs today and chemo tomorrow, so hopefully she'll be ready to  help at Cold Stone on Thursday evening!  She loves all the cards and goodies she received in person and in the mail!  It is nice to for her to have something so fun happen on her chemo week especially.  It is no fun for her to keep going to these treatments knowing how they make her feel.  We really appreciate all your good wishes for her!

Hi 16 year old!

Dear Kelly,

We don't have a Cold Stone Creamery near us, but we do have a Blimpie. So, Kathy made a salad and she brought in two 3-inch turkey sandwiches and made a donation in your name. We hope it helps the Make a Wish people.

I hope the chemo's not too bad tomorrow.

Take care.

Hi Kelly,

We'll be thinking of you when we go to our Cold Stone Creamery Store tomorrow!
