Windy Knoll Farm
Yes, I've been in charge of this group for less than a day, but I promise to use my powers for good and not evil. I'm coordinating the Right As Raines Blood Drive in honor of my mother May 2nd and we're making an extra effort to reach out to the climbing community. Climbing is actually one of the safest sports around, but known for it's community spirit and looking out for each other.
In that vein (pun always intended), I wanted to let you know that our silent auction will be featuring not one, but 2 climbing themed baskets up for grabs. Goodies include gift certificates from Vertical Rock and Sport Rock climbing gyms, plus other climbing goodies to sooth your souls. All the money raised will go to the Red Cross. There'll be also be live music, food from Okra's, and most importantly giving blood.
Someone in the United States needs blood every three seconds. It cannot be manufactured, it has to be donated. Please consider giving. Follow this link to make you lifesave appointment now!
The event is being held at Windy Knoll Farm which is right down the road from Vertical Rock. If enough people are interested, we could arrange a light climb at the gym (very very light,with extra lots of hydration!) before heading over to give blood. (Not the other way around: SAFETY FIRST!!!) Let me know if you want me to hook that up.
