2007 Summer Ghent Bar Tour – Let’s Raise Some Wishes!

Posted By Jim On 06/21/2007 @ 10:20 am In Philanthropy | 2 Comments

Are you in the Norfolk, VA area? Do you like to make wishes come true? Well it’s the summer and my buddy Scott is running his Ghent Bar Tour [3] once again for the Make A Wish Foundation. If you’ll remember, the winter bar tour [4] a few months ago raised a staggering $14,000 (crushing the goal of $8k) to help Ashtin and Bradin [5]. Ashtin got his wish of a safe room so his parents wouldn’t worry about him and Bradin was able to go see Spongebob Squarepants, a remarkable achievement. This year, the bar tour will be taking place on July 28th and tickets only $15 now (if you buy before June 30th) and only $25 the day of – remember its going to a great cause. (Use Google Checkout if you register online, it won’t charge them a fee)

FMF of Free Money Finance [6] and I are teaming together to try to raise some cash for the cause, we’ve both agreed to match donations up to $500 each. So if readers of Free Money Finance and Blueprint can come up with a thousand dollars of donations to the Make A Wish Foundation [7], we’ll get together and contribute a thousand dollars – making the total donation worth two thousand dollars. Any donation of any amount is appreciated!

Some details on the donations, they are made directly to the Make A Wish Foundation and entirely tax deductible (check with your tax professional), but we ask that you mail them to Scott so he can collect it all in a package to present to the foundation. Please email me (jim at bargaineering dot com) if you’d like to donate and thank you!

And, I’m going to attend the tour, so if you are going then shoot me an email too!
