I am contacting you again because you have helped us in the past and I hope you will help us this year to take a HERO fishing.
This year has been especially tough raising funds for MAD 7 due to the economy. Nevertheless, the dedicated folks that call themselves MAD are going to forge ahead and have MAD 7.
This is who we are: http://www.militaryappreciationday.org/phpBB3/home.php
This is what we do:
Our troops are tired, they are under-supported and often forgotten.
MAD does all this for FREE for our TROOPS, OUR HEROES! They are treated to a day of deep sea fishing, onshore family activities and a southern style BBQ at the end of the day. It is our way of saying One, Simple, THANKS!
Will you help us make this happen this year? We need the following:
Money: any amount will help. You can donate on line here: http://www.militaryappreciationday.org/phpBB3/donate.php or mail a check to Military Appreciation Day, Inc P.O. Box 77453 Charlotte, NC 28271-7010.
We need folks with boats willing to take some heroes out fishing on June 2nd, leaving from Morehead City NC.
Our food needs are 350 hamburger patties and 200 slices of cheese. We have secured hotdogs at a price of $12 per 100 and need about 800 hotdogs if anyone wants to step up and finance them. We need a dessert to feed about 400.
We need folks to help us serve the meals at 11:30 and 5:00 on Saturday. We have a Captains’ meal on Friday night for the volunteers and will need servers then as well.
I hope that what MAD stands for and the video of what we do will help you make the decision to help us this year.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you will help take some real HEROES fishing. Ideas and contacts to make this happen are appreciated. If you cannot help, please pass this email forward.
Feel free to contact Bubba or myself with any questions.
