SMART/BENCHS Beer/Cheer Squad!

The Sunday morning coffee drinkers are putting together a bowling team for the BENCHS (a no-kill shelter serving Blue Earth and Nicollet County) fundraiser at the Wow Zone on Sunday, Feb 17th.

What if you don't bowl, like me? Come on out to the Wow Zone to be a beer/cheer squad for our SMART bowlers and for BENCHS. We will have drinks, good company, and most likely some adorable animal balloon art made by our very own, very talented, Becky (Check out her FaceBook Page HERE!) to use to solicit some more donations for BENCHS.

Hope to see you there!


If you want to donate some money to help our team meet our goal, here are the instructions! Even if you can only spare a few dollars, every little bit will help us reach our goal!

-Go to
-Click on contribute
-Select the "operating expense" PayPal donation button
-Make a comment (special instructions to seller; before you confirm your payment) during your donation that the funds support the SMART Bowling Team.

Walt (our organizer) will personally get all the PayPal donation information and will accordingly credit it to the SMART team.

    Hi all!! Thanks to Becky's Twisty Balloons, we raised $141.74 at the event!!! That's to add to whatever our total was on Paypal prior to today. (Walt, they didn't know there, so I just told them $325 as that was the last I heard.) So our team took 4th place overall (bowling plus money raised!). Great job, everyone, thanks so much!!! :)

    I'm going to twist balloon cats and dogs ahead of time. My new balloon pump sucks. I'll put them all in big balloon cage.

    Important Update! Our generous bunch of Free Thinkers has already exceeded our goal...we have $325 already in the bank for BENCHS! We have one SMART Team bowling at noon on the 17th. Remember...the goal is to raise as much as possible with a trophy for the top donation group!! So, whether bowling, joining the cheering squad or just supporting from afar, don't be afraid to kick in a little $$$! Renee and Jeremy are setting up a logo on cafepress that we plan to use for bowling and/or ID shirts. The SMART coffee group decided on RED as a color and will be individually ordering their shirts from Cafepress. I will post a notice as soon as the logo is in place.

    We are going to have puppies and kitties that people can 'rescue' from 'jail' for a free will donation while we are beering and cheering, so get ready to dress like a stern taskmaster warden or something... :) lol
