Good evening family and friends. One last reminder on our upcoming Congenital Heart Awareness Night at Busch Stadium, Saturday May 18th. We are trying to get all tickets sold by end of the day tomorrow as we owe the Cardinals ticket money Friday. If you are out of town and cannot make the game, consider buying a ticket or two to donate. Becky has promised to personally hand-deliver your donated ticket(s) to a family in the St. Louis Children’s Hospital CICU to help make their day if only a little bit better. For ticket purchases, visit our events page and click “Reserve your tickets here” (http://www.mightyoakes.org/How-You-Can-Help/Events.html). We have sold almost 500 tickets, an utterly astonishing number considering we’re a “small”, family-and-friends type of foundation right now with still so much room to grow over the coming years. We’d like to sell 700 total tickets, but we realized that was a stretch goal. Whatever the end number is, we’ll all be sitting in the same 4-5 sections together! We cannot thank everyone enough for their continued support of the foundation we started in honor of our precious Oakes.
We are still attempting to identify a place to meet before the game, for those so inclined. I will keep ticket-purchasers updated as the event gets closer. By the way, most of the t-shirts are in and they are AWESOME!! We’ll be distributing tickets and apparel shortly. It is bound to be a magical night.
Greg, Becky, Isla P. (the brand new 4 year old today!)
