Hope that everyone has been enjoying their summer, whatever you may be doing. But with the end of summer getting closer and closer, that means September is nearing. However, September brings Playing for the Cure: Brainstormin’ fifty days from today!
Thanks to all of our sponsors (special thanks to our annual sponsor ShelfSpace Marketing, LLC, as well as our presenting sponsors this year, Carla’s Pasta and Specialty Packaging), family, supporters and the committee assisting us this year, I am excited to announce that we have already surpassed the amount donated in each of the previous two years! With an exciting new venue, two great new bands and a tremendous raffle, the excitement is hard to contain. As you know, we are holding the concert in the celebration room of the Stony Creek Brewery. Gone are the days of drinking Pabst Blue Ribbon and on to their craft brews. And if beer is not your thing, they serve wine too. If you think you might be hungry, worry not because this year, we are including a $10 food voucher! Every weekend at the brewery, they have local food trucks come, so there will be something for everyone. The brewery has been great to work with and I am excited to see our event come to life there!
As mentioned in a previous post, our bands this year are Ja2M and Wise Old Moon. These bands are the perfect fit for this venue and are sure to please everyone in attendance. In addition, we have a tremendous raffle and auction full of awesome items donated by sponsors, friends and colleagues. Just to name some, we have two raffles: one for our grand prize, a 50cc gas street scooter, and the other raffle contains prizes such as a foursome of golf to play a round of 18 at one of two courses at Lyman Orchards, tickets to the Goodspeed Opera House, tickets to a UConn men’s basketball game, gift baskets, gift cards and many more. Some of our auction items include an Eli Manning autographed jersey and a dinner for eight at the winner’s house prepared by the chefs at Carla’s Pasta.
But most importantly, by coming or making a donation, you will be helping doctors, surgeons and researchers find the cure for brain tumors. To help a family and spare someone else having to go through what my family and I went through is what this is all about.
I’m not one to ask for much, but please, support this cause and come join us for a beer, some good tunes and some great food at the Stony Creek Brewery! Hope to see you in 50 days!
