Operation BBQ - Now Taking Donations!

Hi folks,

I hope everyone has had a chance to read about what Sammy Baugh Fan (Mike Hedrick) is doing for our wounded troops on August 15. Everyone can agree that this is a truly great thing. Mike has dedicated his time, money and efforts into making this a successful "Thank You" to our troops.

To pull this off, it will not be free or even cheap. Conservative estimates are in the $2-3k range. Mike is willing to bear this burden, but I do not believe it should all rest on his shoulders.

Many people have PayPal, so I am going to ask that for people who wish to do so, wire your donations to me at chris@skinsfan.us
Every little bit helps. He said that even $5 buys 75 buns. Mike does not have PayPal, so I am volunteering my account for this. I am local to Mike and will try to meet up with him around the the middle of August to present him with a check for the donations received.

As a slight incentive, I will donate $5 for every donation received via my account.

Total: $105
Donations: 4


Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
Chris Payne
Amissville, VA

Re: Operation BBQ - Now Taking Donations!

Thank you for the support and the help.

On a personal note to you all....thank you as well. In my heart I know "you all" love and support the young men and women and especially the ones wounded.

When I meet them I will tell them of your love and support as well.

Thank you.

Now, back to work as this is gonna be big. The cost of 260 chairs, three tens and a stage and sound system I was told is $6,000. Do what?!?!?!?! Oh heck no. we'll get that cheaper or donated.

See what I'm up against? And we have'nt ever started talking about food yet.

Thanks cpayne my dear friend
peace
mike

Sammy Baugh Fan, I had mentioned some thing about maybe getting some pork donated but I struck out on that as I spoke with the guy the other day.

Didn't 724Skinsfan say he was just getting into the Rent-a-Tent business with his dad? Maybe you could talk to him about tents

Re: Operation BBQ - Now Taking Donations!

Hoffmasters Marina gave me $500
Grandmother Millie POrter gave me $100
Randon folks gave me $40

Today I make my rounds to my local business friends. I'd like to end the day with afew thousand bucks. I also may have another source for tents, tables and chairs and stuff to save some money.

I have over 10 Teams and 10 big rig smokers and a lot of volunteers.

Things will get rolling now
