Bowling (not about 6-6 seasons or Fitz’ shirts)

Coming off the success of AvivoPak, the goEMAW BBBS bowling team entered their scheduled event with a balance of $4,517 raised for Big Brothers Big Sisters. goEMAW dominated the evening, both on the scoreboard and the accounting ledger.

Your humble author frankly got fairly pak’d, so I’ll be posting details of the evening in the BBBS thread on goEMAW.com. I’ll need the other pak’rs to help plug in some details. I don’t remember putting on our pak head masks, let alone hanging the banners and then taking the giant check to Manhattan.

There’s still time to donate. We gathered we’re a little less than $3,000 behind the leading small company, Eby Construction. We met Mr. Eby at last night’s event and he took great pleasure in telling us they were “Boomer Sooners” and that they didn’t anticipate planning losing their championship to a bunch of purple pussies, notwithstanding him immediately running out the side door before I could execute a chokeout.

Once again, donations large and small can be made at the following links:

Don’t forget, we have a number of prizes that will be raffled off to the donors, including gift certificates to Houlihan’s in Manhattan and the Michael Beasley signed basketball. Details are in the thread on goEMAW.com.

KEEP THE PLEDGES COMING!

AvivoPak was a smashing success, raising $800 for the goEMAW Big Brothers Big Sisters fundraiser. Pledges from many goEMAW’rs have been coming in all week as well, with our total funds raised as of this posting at $3,760.00.

We’re still hoping to get to a total of $7,000 which should secure us the golden bowling pin trophy.

Amabassador’s Level ($100+) donors thus far include EMAW dignitaries EMAWgeddon, Saul, LSOC, Meek, Levi and others. Pete is the lone Governor’s Level ($200+) donor. That said, we welcome all donations, however small, as we work towards our goal.

Again, donations can be made at any of our team members’ pledge pages:

We’ll continue to update our progress here. Thanks for all your help.

goEMAW BBBS Fundraiser

goEMAW is hosting a buffet dinner at Avivo Pizzeria in Wichita on Tuesday night, April 5 from 6-9 p.m.

The rumblings are true. It’s time once again for the annual goEMAW philanthropy, benefiting Big Brothers Big Sisters. This year, goEMAW.com has registered as a small business and is competing to be one of the top 5 companies in that category, for which it would receive the golden bowling pin trophy at the awards ceremony in December. It’s hoped that the ceremony will coincide nicely with the HugginsPak and that many of you can be in attendance.

Unlike every other company we’re competing with, we only have one team with which to raise all the money. Despite that handicap, the goEMAW team has already raised $2,215.00 as of this posting. We’d like to raise $7,000 which would almost assuredly get us first place, but by last year’s standards, $4,500 should get us in the top 5.

The event is Bowl For Kids’ Sake, although the bowling aspect isn’t prevalent anymore. Our team is bowling April 15, but there are no more “per-pin” pledges, and donations can be made for a month or so after that. That said, we’d like to have this project pretty well wrapped up by that weekend.

In addition to asking for straight donations, we’ve organized a dinner this Tuesday April 5 at Avivo Pizzeria in Wichita. Starting at 6pm, WichitaPizzaCat has arranged for a buffet dinner to be provided for the low cost of $10, with all proceeds going to the BBBS fund. If you’re anywhere close to Wichita, come to this. If you’re not, get anybody you know who can go to go.

Amongst others, team members include MIR, Gooch and myself. Donations can be made at:

A who’s who of (go)EMAW celebrities have already donated. We hope you can spare a few bucks, too. We haven’t asked for much (anything?) the past year+, but we’d really appreciate everyone’s help on this project.

Also, Haverhill has already been put on notice that he will be banned if he doesn’t donate $100. Not sure how he’s coming along with that but if you like having him around, you can always donate the money in his honor to keep him here.

Please help out, and get in touch with any of us if you have any questions or any ideas on how we could spread this even more.

T-Y,

Trim
