Default Robb Needs your Help

Hey Y'all! I've been roped into an event to benefit Muscular Dystrophy. I need to raise $1900 (or more) by mid April. I get "locked up" for part of an afternoon and the $1900 is my "bail". Corny premise...good cause. I get to spend that time noshing a hunk of beef at Outback Steak house. Thinking about getting Knackered as well but that might be bad since it's a community Ho-down...in any event...your help would be greatly appreciated. If you live in the US it's a tax deductible donation. If you do not live in the US we will likely be invading your homeland soon so you might as well get used to paying proper tribute to Uncle Sam.

Help a Geeky, former athlete out:

Just follow that link and give till it hurts.

Donation made.

I used to get locked up every year. I kind of miss calling and hounding my vendors for donations.

I see that the MDA has gone hi tech with the internet based credit card giving. Man that makes it a whole lot easier than filling out the slips and hoping the people would pay when they got the bill.

Have fun, enjoy the free food and I say maybe not get knackered but get a good start on it. Free beer always taste the best.

LOL! OMG...that is hilarious! I think I could get in for free...but I doubt if I'd make it back out without a serious tussle!

Derek-
Thank you! Early start on the free beer it is!
Yael-
Nay Sayer! We will make the bail...or die trying! Actually nothing will happen...but IF we manage to get the most money in by March 30th (I've had a late start) they will bring all the Starbucks we can drink to the gym for a morning. I can drink a truck load of americanos!
