Two Weeks Away from Paul\’s Fundraiser!

From the heart…This has been a busy, but rewarding spring. We have had a wonderful group of people working on Paul’s fundraiser, which, by the way… is two weeks away! Tuesday, May 20th seems like just a minute away when we think of all the work that has yet to be done and how fast time flies.

My heart is full when I think of the strong and steadfast group of people who have been working to make this year’s event another success. We had 16 applicants for Paul’s scholarship, thanks to the staff at Great Bridge High School, especially the guidance counselors who publicized in the in house TV and in the announcements. They encouraged students to apply and helped them out. I am honored and can’t wait to give the scholarships out at the end of this month!

About Paul’s fundraiser, which raises money for the scholarships; the Planning Team, though smaller than some years, has worked diligently and with passion to get it all together for the 20th. We have some wonderful prizes and 3 great drawings for the “big” prizes. They are:

~ A week at an ocean front beach house in Duck, North Carolina, the week of Thanksgiving, November 21-28! What a fun place to be for Thanksgiving!! These tickets are $25.00 each and are limited to 150 tickets.

~ A week at the YMCA Camp Silver Beach on the Eastern Shore of Virginia!! This prize is for a child between 8 and 16 at one of the premiere residential camps in the USA!! These tickets are $10 each or 3 for 25.00.

~A weekend during peak season in a King Room soundfront at The Inn on Pamlico Sound in Buxton, North Carolina, the Cape Hatteras area. It is a two night stay with breakfast included and $100 towards a dinner. This is a beautiful inn with gorgeous views, excellent cuisine and a great place for a romantic getaway!! These tickets are selling for $10.00 each or 3 for 25.00.

Please let us know if you would like tickets.

We hope the community will come out, Tuesday, May 20th, and celebrate Senior Night for the two varsity soccer teams, enjoy some good music and fun times, buy tickets for the prizes and baskets, pick up this year’s T-shirt for a $10 donation, and enjoy hamburgers and hotdogs with a great group of people!! Bring your kids, your parents, everyone you can think of and have a great time with us!!

My family and I, along with the Planning Team, thank you for your support during this special time. It is about remembering Paul and who he was…about helping kids…and celebrating with the community and the soccer teams!!

Please pray for good weather and a great night! Please Join Us!!
