FDNY Plaque (http://tinypic.com/52ct93)

The NYFFBC Foundation contacted me telling me they were making up plaques to give to us players who held the Burn Center Charity in February -From the WPBA-myself,Dawn Hopkins,Tiffany Nelson,Kim Shaw,Romana Dokovic,Karen Armstrong) and (Tony Robles&Allen Hopkins)-also donations from (Jennifer Baretta,Jeanette Lee and Karen Corr)-I told them it was not necessary,but they insisted-well, when you here "plaques" you assume a plaque-these are 26 inches high and 15 1/2 inches wide-4 were made (at my request)one for-The "WPBA" "Tony ROBLES" Allen HOPKINS" and "HOUSE OF BILLIARDS"
I would like to thank ALL of you who have donated monies-WOLFDANCER and any others ,because, since February, the pool hall is still receiving checks for the burn center!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
And I just wanted to share what the so-called "FDNY PLAQUE" looked like-I think its awesome!
Thank you ,also,to Mike (cueball) and Blackheart (Jerry Eick)
Stay well!

Great job Carol! It's nice to see your efforts appreciated. So many times charities take these fund raisers for granted. Hopefully this will be an annual event, and become more successful.

Carol, that's a great looking plaque!!!...Congratulations to you,the WPA org...and everyone out there on the east coast, for getting involved, getting behind a worthwhile cause.
Hope you can make it an annual affair.
I have a small suggestion....if we can get some pledges from folks here, $1 a week saved until the next "drive", and we'll make it, one decent donation...in memory of our friend, Dave Syrja....

Wow carol..that is awesome. I hope too that I can make the next one...I do have a request though...Can you try not to schedule it during a snow storm or other bad weather?

take these fund raisers for granted.

I've never organized a fundraiser, but an unusual thing happened-a handful of local people asked me "what did you make out of this"-that pissed me off BIGTIME- Well,if looks could kill, they'd be dead ,because as far as Im concerned, charity means "to give" and anybody who pockets money from a CHARITY needs help-and NOBODY,not one single person made a dime,except the burn center-every cent went to the burn center ,$10,000+ and still counting and I know 14 kids, this summer, will be going to burn camp to be children again /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gifalong with monies to the skin graft research! /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Yes, there'll be another and Im hoping you'll be there! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif-you'd be the perfect person to walk around holding up score sheets-dress to impress,girl /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
