As some of you already know, my sister Karen passed away on March 28th after living with MS for almost 50 years. The day after her funeral, I received a meet-up reminder e-mail looking for volunteers to help with an MS Fund Raiser lead by Tim Lia who also has a personal interest in helping with the MS cause. It was felt that there would be no better way to honor my sister than to join forces with Tim by volunteering and promoting this fundraiser. Unfortunately, this takes place the same day as our Euchre picnic but I'm hoping that we can attend both events on the same day.
Here is the information Tim posted about the fundraiser:
We are having a fundraiser in memory of Sharron Lia with all proceeds going to the Multiple Sclerosis Society. We rented the outdoor park area which includes 2 volleyball courts, 4 bean bag areas and a nice big bar (yeah). Cost is $25 (advanced purchase) which includes Dinner and dessert. Cash bar(sorry). There will be raffles, split the pot, gift baskets, bean bag contest and a D.J. Make checks payable to "Sharron's Fund fights M.S." and send to Tim Lia 4921 w. 156th St Oak Forest, Il 60452 For any info or if you would like to volunteer please contact me. Hope you can attend!!!!! !
