For my Friend Chris....


I have a favor to ask.....I have a friend who just had his second surgery for brain cancer this past week. We worked together for 4 years at the Beau Rivage casino prior to Hurricane Katrina in 2005. If you'd like to read more about Chris you can do that here. He is a great guy with 2 children and is fighting like hell to beat this. His hospital bills are staggering. His friends are rallying and have put together a Golf Tournament and various events to help see him through this. The Tournament is going to be on February 11th at the Mississippi National Golf Course. If you will be in the area and would like to participate....you can find out more information on the web site.

Since I suck at golf....I am going to be donating a couple of pieces of jewelry for the silent auction they will be having that day. If you have anything you'd like to donate to support Chris, please email me or comment here. They'd like to have all donations in by the end of the month. You can also donate through Pay Pal directly on Chris' website, doesn't matter how much...every dollar helps. If you don't golf, like me, stop by on Feb 11th to participate in the auction or for some mouth watering baked goods and bring a friend or two.
I will post a few of the items that will be up for auction if I am able to in the coming weeks.
Thanks for your support....!
