UPDATE: Dax's Day raised over $15,000 for St Jude!!
Have you heard of Dax Locke? He's a little boy from Washington, IL that lost his battle with cancer in December of 2009. You can read his story here, it's a journal written by his mother. As a mother of two boys, it's incredibly heart wrenching, so bring your kleenex along.
I have been asked to participate in a fundraiser for St. Jude in Dax's name. Here's the info on it:
Dax's Day this Saturday (Feb 20) at Five Points from 10-4! No admission fee, Dora the Explorer, face painting, and balloon making for the kids. Raffle & Silent auction (must be present to win) drawings at Noon; 3 silent auction over at 3. Over 30 vendors. We will be on Channel 31 on the 17th at 6:20 and channels 25, 19 on the 19th at 6:15. Hope to see you all there!
As a little fundraiser of my own for the show, I've decided to have some special cards available for purchase that day. They are 4.5x5 inch folded cards, each with a little boy's silhouette and "Cherish Every Moment", a phrase that families from St. Jude use.
You get 5 cards with envelopes for $10, with $5 of each purchase going directly to St. Jude.
