Austin Heineman fundraiser scheduled for Friday

From the "Amanda's Rage Cranking it up for Austin" Facebook page (with a few edits):

(Area band) Amanda's Rage will be cranking it up to help Austin Heineman in his battle with cancer.

 

At the young age of 17 Austin was suddenly up against, and in a battle, with a very aggressive and rare form of cancer called Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor.

 

Austin is now 18. He has completed several rounds of chemo and will soon be undergoing bone marrow transplants in Maryland. He has also had to travel to New York City for several days/weeks at a time for treatment.

 

Austin's father, Jason, has been transporting and staying by Austin's side on each and every trip for treatment.

 

Austin needs your help, support and all-important prayers to continue fighting this battle.

 

Austin's Army is looking for recruits. Do you have what it takes?
Come out March 1 to join Austin's Army & show Austin and his family that they are not alone in this.

 

$3.00 cover/donation - 50/50 raffles - Open donations.

This event will take place at the Batavia Country Club, at 7909 Batavia-Byron Road in Batavia, and last from 8 p.m. until midnight Friday.

For more information, call Dawn at 703-3793.

Fundraiser in Jackson Square will benefit Don Carroll

post by Daniel Crofts in batavia, Don Carroll, fundraiser, Jackson Square, live music

T-Shirts, Etc. and the Batavia Business Improvement District (or "the BID") will present "DC in the Square," a benefit for local philanthropist Don Carroll, on Sunday from noon until 4 p.m. It will be downtown at Jackson Square.

Carroll, who is well-known locally for raising thousands of dollars on behalf of underprivileged youth, was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in April.

Brian and Beth Kemp of T-Shirts, Etc. have known Carroll for several years and helped him every year with Toys for Kids, an annual toy drive Carroll founded to purchase Christmas presents for children who might not otherwise receive them.

"When I found out about Don's cancer," Beth said, "I went to Brian and suggested we host a benefit. Because he has helped so many people, I thought it would be awesome for the community to be able to give back."

They approached the BID to ask if they could use Jackson Square as the venue. The BID went even further and agreed to sponsor the event.

"DC in the Square" will feature live performances by three bands: "Old Hippies," "Soul Craft" and "Savage Cabbage," plus a Chinese auction and a 50/50 raffle.

Items included in the auction and raffle will include all kinds of goodies donated by several local businesses, including:

  • Clothing apparel from Lamb Farms (Oakfield)
  • A goodie basket from Oliver's Candies
  • T-shirts and gift certificates from The Batavian

Coffee Culture Manager Brenda Richardson, who is also helping out with the event, said that M&T Bank has donated money, which they may use for a kids' basket or something similar.

Clor's Meat Market will be providing BBQ dinners for $9. People have their choice of chicken, rib or pulled pork dinners. Each dinner comes with a roll, butter, and two out of the following three sides:

  • Salt potato
  • Coleslaw
  • Macaroni salad

Tickets can be purchased at the Square on July 29 or in advance at the following Batavia locations:

  • T-Shirts Etc., 111 Main St.
  • Clor's Meat Market, 4169 W. Main St. Road
  • Coffee Culture, 6 Court St.

A minimum $2 donation is asked of everyone at the gate.

Jerry Foster, a former teacher and lifelong friend of Carroll's, provided an update on his condition.

"He's completed his third cycle of chemo," Foster said. "He is starting to be able to swallow a little bit, though not much. ... He will be going back to Strong Memorial Hospital to see if the tumor has shrunk enough that they can operate on it."

For more information about "DC in the Square," contact Brian and Beth Kemp at 345-1993 or email [email protected].

Support the NWF Great American Backyard Campout

NWF Great American Backyard Campout, June 23 


 

My name is Elizabeth and I hope you will join me in support of the

National Wildlife Federation's Great American Backyard Campout!

Donations will be accepted until July 31, 2012

 

Let's play some GABC trivia! 

Question: What percentage of kids play outside daily?

A) 50%   B) 10%

C) 25%   D) 75%

Answer: C 25%

Yes, that is sadfully correct.  Only 25% of kids play outside daily—as opposed to 75% a generation ago!

On Saturday, June 23rd, I’ll be joining thousands of families across the country to help American children explore the great outdoors and take the first steps to happy, nature-filled, healthy lives.

National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Backyard Campout will provide an opportunity to open the door and spend a night filled with exploration and fun under the stars all while helping our nation’s kids!

That’s where you come in. NWF’s Great American Backyard Campout is family fun with a purpose: helping American kids benefit from outdoor time. By supporting my fundraising efforts, you can help raise awareness of the important work of NWF programs like Green Hour, Nature Find, Trees for the 21st Century, Certified Wildlife and Schoolyard Habitats that help get kids outside and connected with nature.

Find out how you can make a difference by visiting my personal fundraising page or join me along with the thousands of people who will gather in backyards, neighborhoods, communities and parks to take part in a night that can mark your family’s first step into a lifetime filled with healthy, outdoor fun.

Donations will be accepted through July 31 and are tax deducatible.

I would like to thank you in advance for your support!

- Elizabeth
