Attention, Do-Gooders: Your Help is Needed
We FITS gals find it pretty difficult - if not impossible - to unglue ourselves from the sofa on the weekend for anything, let alone "giving a little back for the greater good," but this Saturday night we're making an exception.
Why? Because we like kids, because Leukemia is the #1 killer of kids in our country, and because some good local folks right here in South Carolina are teaming up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to raise money and awareness in their ongoing fight against this disease.
Saturday, July 29, the local Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is holding a silent auction from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the Garden Bistro - a great little Sandwich Shop/hangout in the Vista in downtown Columbia (right next to the Art Bar on Park Street right off Gervais).
In addition to the auction, which will include prizes from dozens of local merchants (including an adorable Beagle puppy that Heather S. has her eye on), there will be food, beverages and music from the Black Bottom Biscuits, tunes you can really sink your teeth into!
A tax deductible $20 donation is requested, which is less than you'd probably spend on your bar tabs anyway, folks, and besides - all of that money goes directly to fund research, patient services, public and professional education and marrow donor registry to help combat Leukemia and Lymphoma.
For more information on tomorrow's event, contact Ed Schafer (803-609-5961 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Anna Jacobs (803-682-1529 or email@example.com) here in Columbia.
We look forward to seeing all of our loyal readers there! We may even decide to chip in something REALLY special and auction off a date with our own infamous Sic Willie!!!
