I hate to start a third thread for the F.U. Heroes, but I'd like to see the raffle part of the tour get more attention.  If we can't raise a couple hundred dollars with the raffle, I may have to consider an alternative to the raffle, like auctioning off the board.  But, if I had to do that, I would have to think of a way to be fair to those who do buy raffle tickets.

Here is what we have so far.

Anonymous donor
70sSkater
Grommet
johnnymonskate
Mickey and Loree
Mogulman
skateboardpimp
TonyB

For now, I will not post how many raffle tickets each person buys, in case people would rather keep the amount of their contributions confidential.  But, if you guys let me know that you would prefer the raffle ticket count be posted, I can add that later.

I hope everyone can join in.  Remember, you can donate directly to any one of the charities (Grind for Life, American Cancer Society, Ann's Hope Foundation, Stanford University Medical Center, MACC Fund) and show me your receipt or you can send check or money order to me (PM me for my address).  Each $10 you donate buys one raffle ticket.

Thank you TonyB, Mickey and Loree and johnnymon! 

BTW, I did not mean to imply in my original post on this thread that everybody has to join in the raffle now.  It's fine if you want to wait until the board gets to you.  I just wanted to make sure that the raffle gets noticed and is not buried in the logistics thread.

A little surprised that tickets/donations are so slow. Looks like there are a few missing for the Jam. I know it's not compulsory but it's for a good cause and what's $10 these days....not a lot.

Well, I'm sorry to say that PP has shut us down.  So, we can't use PP as an option and I will have to delete their name from this thread. 

So, here are the payment options I see:

1.  Make a donation directly to any one or more of the listed charities and show me your receipt.  This option has the added benefit of giving you a receipt for tax deduction purposes.

2.  Send a money order to me, which I can hold un-cashed until I make bulk donations to the listed charities, or;

3.  Send me a personal check, which I will deposit in my account.  I will then make periodic donations to the charities as the money accumulates.  This option has the benefit of avoiding any kind of fees (except postage), but I will have to temporarily co-mingle donated funds with my own funds. 

If you choose to mail a payment to me, send me a PM and I'll give you my address.  I have a Post Office box we could use.

Thanks to everybody who has donated so far.

Thanks for the update............

I believe the Clash at Clairemont is this Saturday the 19th and Grind 4 Life normally has a booth set up down there. I'm planning on attending and will make my donation at that time and get my receipt to scan or take a pic of to validate. If they don't have a booth set up or they aren't capable of taking donations at the event I will make the donation through their webpage. Either way, I hope to have that taken care of shortly.

Great job and keep it up.

Mogs~

The Clash was cool and the entire event supports Grind 4 Life. I made a $20 donation and took a pic of the receipt. I watched Hawk on the ramp for a bit and then checked out the booths. We didn't have time to stay for the pool demo as we were off to the Viva LaCosta dinner later that day. Saturday was pretty busy!

70's, I will get the pic off my camera one of these days and get it posted up or PM'd to you. So I'm down for two tickets please.

Mogs~

I had collected $120.00 in donations by PP and personal checks and donated that to Grind for Life today.  Thank you to all who have contributed so far.

Hey Chris, 

Totally snoozed on this, sorry I missed your donation drop.  At this point, what's the best thing to do?

Thanks!

Brian
