Thank you to all who came out the last 5 years and made this event such an incredible and enduring success. Over the last 5 years you have raised over 100k dollars. The money that you donated and the support you have given me has had an incredible impact on my life. I hope those who have made it out in the past, can come and make the event another resounding success. Those who haven't been, you're missing out and hope to see you this year.
To those who don't know about the event, the Curl-a-Thon, is a fundraiser put on by my friends and family at the Philadelphia Curling Club, which I've been a member of since 1997. The event is open to everyone (friends, family, strangers etc.), there will be food, drinks, and curling going on from 6pm Friday, March 8th to 10 pm Saturday, March 9th.
There will be a raffle that will end on Saturday night, with all proceeds going into a non-profit fund (HelpHOPELive, formerly NTAF) set up in my name to help offset continuing medical costs. You're donations over the last 5 years have aloud me to purchase a wheelchair van, rugby wheelchair, pay for aide assistance and many other related items.
Stop in Friday or Saturday, say hello, have a beer, try your luck and enjoy this years Luau Theme . We will have food and drink over the course of the weekend for a small price. If you're feeling adventurous and would like to try curling, Saturday March 9th from 6pm on there will be open curling for all to try for a small fee.
To my wheelchair friends, the club is NOT currently accessible and does NOT have an accessible bathroom. However, please don't let this discourage you, we have plenty of people to help you bump up and down a few small stairs. And if your interested in getting out on the ice in your chair, we can make that happen too. Just give me a heads up.
