I just wanted to say "thank you" to all those who made D.A.D.'s Day 2014 such a success.
While we are still waiting on the final numbers, as of Friday we were at $3,500 and still counting for the Central VA JDRF.
Thank you to all those who donated-from those who chipped in their Dollar Against Diabetes to our anonymous donor who gave $1000 this year. As you all know, this is a campaign that is very near and dear to my heart. Thank you for taking the time to donate online or in person.
Also a big "thank you" to our partners "The Pig and Pearl", "Mosquito Squad", "Call Federal Credit Union," Richmond International Raceway and the Richmond Flying Squirrels for their help in giving us places to be to collect donations.
Thanks to Jon Laaser and Marc Davis for asking to be teammates on this. As sons of diabetics, we are all trying to do a little something but it has big meaning.
I also have to express my gratitude to Shaka Smart and Scott Day at VCU, Dennis Bickmeirer at RIR, The Richmond Hokie Club, and Shelley Sowers over at the Richmond Kickers for their donations to the online auction which raised over $1,500.00
Finally, a big "THANK YOU" to my favorite co-host my Pop and to the best D.A.D.'s Day assistant their is-Momma McElroy. Love you both.
If you didn't get a chance and would still like to make a donation, you can mail a check to:
