St. Baldrick's Update (#2)

With only a few days before the Friday deadline, SGF ATCT is getting very close to reaching its goal!
I want to thank everybody that has already made a contribution to the St. Baldrick's Foundation to support my nephews' efforts to raise funds for research for a cure of childhood cancers. With just a few more donations, I'll be joining the boys for a head shaving event on Saturday.

In addition to the local Air Traffic contributions (including staff and administration), we have also received donations from a supervisor that hasn't even reported to the facility for assignment, an AF technician and the elevator maintenance guy that was in the facility and saw the notice.

Some of my NATCA friends from other facilities have made contributions, as well as family and church friends. I know that you will all get a thank-you from the boys. I want to make sure that you know how much I appreciate it, as well. If there are still Facebook friends, Twitter followers or regular Out of My Hat readers that would like to make a contribution, you can do that here. Just click on the "Make a Donation" link and follow the prompts. I know that there are many places that you can (and do) give your charitable dollars. For those that have chosen the St. Baldrick's Foundation for this event--Thanks!

WOW...as of right now, $1,731.00 has been raised! That is fantastic. I have no idea who most of the donors are, but I would like to send a giant 'Thank You' to them all. I am counting down the days to John's head being shaved. I have a mental image that I can't stop laughing about. It will be great to see his head look like a giant cue ball!
