Some kayakers are organizing a benefit dinner/fun night out at the Camel (owned by an active whitewater kayaker) on Broad St. on Saturday night, Jan. 10 to raise money to purchase a
handicapped accessible van. Tickets are $20 and include pasta dinner
and live music all night (drinks also available for extra). A 50/50 raffle will be offered for $3 per ticket.
Here is the website with more info: http://gosheilago.info/
I am definitely going to be there and helping out. If you could
attend, that would be awesome! I would hand deliver or mail your dinner ticket
or raffle tickets, if you cannot attend the dinner. I can tell you that several RRRC members and frequent message board posters have already purchased tickets.
Let's get some running community support out there! Please spread
the word - this is going to be a good time and a great cause.
Feel free to contact Emily @ firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
