We are less than a month away to the JDRF One Walk on City Island in Harrisburg! We have done so well this year, and again have people coming out of the woodwork to ASK us if they can help. That my friends, is compassion!
Businesses are joining in on the fun as well! We received a donation and great all around support from Hairacy, Etc., in Middletown. If you see Duane, tell him we said hello!
We also have great friends at the Brownstone Cafe in Middletown, and not only did their staff approach us about putting out a donation bin, but the restaurant itself made a nice donation too!
Just this week we also received a nice donation from Deb Sharp and Sharp Cuts in Middletown. Business owners in small communities get it, folks. We may not have a ginormous corporation sponsoring us, but we have many family-owned small businesses, which are the core of our community.
The latest excitement comes from the Capitol Diner, on Eisenhower Boulevard, in Harrisburg, PA. They also asked us if they could help, and are holding a restaurant night fundraiser for us on Monday, October 31! For anyone who brings in this flyer (click on image!) between 5 and 9 PM that evening, they will donate 20% of the total sales. We are beyond blessed with this type of generosity.
And finally, discussions are going rather well with Tattered Flag Brewery & Still Works in Middletown, where we may be hosting our Cabaret Night in 2017, and *might* even have our own official brew on tap for people to enjoy!
The world is a bit of a mess, and I won't even get into our own political system here in the US. But on a regular basis, no matter how much negativity we see in the world, we know we are surrounded by goodness and generosity! We love you all, and thank you for the amazing support we have been granted.
The One Walk is in 25 days, and we are close to being in first place. I will not be surprised at all if we get there folks! You are all just that good.
I'm a Type One Dad, but my emphasis is on the dad part.
