~ La Familia ~ Chances to Volunteer !

Hola Familia...

Cuz TJ sent me an email about something he has been a part of for The American Cancer Society...I thought it would be good to let everybody know about another opportunity to help ! I have copied and pasted it below to leave it in his words !
I volunteered for the 40th Annual Cattle Baron's Gala at Sunset Station last night. It is one of the biggest fundraisers for the American Cancer Society in Bexar County. I don't have any numbers but it seems like it was a big success! The greeters at the front keeping track of attendance were estimating close to 800 people attended. It is a fun event to volunteer for. The guests are treated to great food and entertainment (last night was Steve Warner). In addition, there are many venues where "yellow rose" memorials, pins, pictures with a real longhorn (one of the more popular), Texas Hold 'Em, where the guests pay for the venue by making minimum donations. Plus there's the silent and live auctions for many different things - everything from golf course certificates to trips, etc. I think most metropolitan areas have their own version of this event - so people can always watch for it in their community. This was the second year I volunteered for this event and it was well worth it - you meet a lot of people who are there for someone they know.

Luv Y'all like Cuz's...
Cuz Andy & Cuz Marjorie
