Well this has to be quick as I am busy writing the name of each person who donated to my Livestrong Challenge Page on the back of thousands of raffle tickets. Today coincidentally is also Spike Lee day here in Brooklyn, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Do the Right Thing”. (Yes, you really are that old, but that’s ok because so am I.) As today is the end of my fundraising efforts (for this event, anyway), I like the theme of “Do the Right Thing”, because each person has done exactly that, and then some (but let’s not trash the pizza joint like in the movie, agreed?)
So thank you to everyone who has donated so far, and to everyone who plans on attending tonight and donating. All winners will be drawn tonight at Layla Jones Pizza (obviously kid-friendly bring ’em) beginning at 5, ending at 8ish. The winners will be posted here on Pistols tomorrow (or Thursday if I have to emergency-sleep the day away tomorrow. Not that I’m tired or anything. Nope, top of the world, never felt better and I have energy running out of my eyeballs. Yeh.)
One Roan note, because after all who would I be if I didn’t name-drop that guy? He decided he wanted to donate something, and offered space on his cast. It was reinforced and re-wrapped yesterday, so it is (sort-of) clean. Roan will be accepting donations tonight to sign his cast, with all proceeds going to the Lance Armstrong Foundation, because as he said, “Cancer is bad and we have to fight.” Then he started throwing crosses, uppercuts, and Muay Thai kicks and something tells me Cancer does not stand a chance.
