I'm one of OB's favorite goEMAWers due to mentoring a kid for the past 2 years in Big Brothers Big Sisters.  Once again, I'm participating in the Bowl For Kids' Sake fundraiser.  From running in the elite goEMAW social circles that I do, it hasn't been too difficult to raise some funds under my name.  However, my Little Brother is on our team and hasn't yet developed the necessary connections for a project like this.

So, I'm calling upon the goEMAW constituency to help.

Why should you?

1) I've turned my Little Brother into total EMAW.  Some of you may have seen the little dude at multiple games in the OOD this year helping me vigorously wave the Puerto Rican flag.  Here he is warming up the hate just prior to this year's basketball edition of the CTR.



2) OB is determined to make Kansas Mentors, of which Big Brothers Big Sisters is a part, a priority in the KSU football program.  Maybe, just maybe, if enough funds can be raised in this next month, he can be satisfied that the mentoring is in good shape and put his full efforts back into football.  PINSTRIPE BOWL CAN BE IS IN REACH!

3) Dedicated readers of goEMAW.com know that dobbie, a skilled bowler, has been invited a couple times to join the team and raise funds for these underprivileged children and has consistently rebuffed the efforts while simultaneously using the opportunity to slam cancer victims/survivors.  I don't know if he just hates charity or can't distinguish a good cause from his disdain for goEMAW, its founder and its members, but this is an opportunity to let him know we're not going to stand for scum like him in our EMAW world.

So, how does this work?  Click here:

http://www.kansasbigs.org/bfks/bowlerview.aspx?id=colegatto

You have the option of pledging a flat amount, or you can pledge per pin, i.e. $0.10 per pin, Cole bowls 100, you'd donate $10. 

Cole's got a lot of EMAW in him but not so much bowling skill.  Anyone who bowls under 100 gets rounded up to 100, so you can count on that or not much more.

Come on, goEMAW, pitch in a few bucks.  You won't get a styrofoam cooler or sporadic "premium" updates that you heard at the last katpak weeks ago, but you'll feel good about helping a good cause and supporting, as 'clams would say, a young buck EMAW.

The bowling event takes place 4/18 in Wichita.  Obviously, anyone and everyone is welcome to come pak with us and can sub in for Cole or I for a few frames.

TIA.

I think I donated, but it just cycled back to the first thing and didn't give me a confirmation or anything.  I guess I'll find out when I receive a bill, unless you can confirm somehow Trim.

I checked.  Your attempt didn't go through.  Try it again when you get a chance.  If it's still not working, I can put your donation down on his paper pledge sheet.

Excellent.  Hopefully dobbs will come around soon to discuss knocking everyone's teeth out and spur on some more eff-dobbs-motivated support.

Thanks SuperG!    :combofan: (but with pak golf heads on both hands)

Come on goEMAWers, donations have been somewhat stagnant.  Don't let dobbie win!

Picked up Cole Monday night to watch the 'ship game.  Asked him who he was rooting for.  Duke.  Why?  Because "Butler beat us so I don't like them".  Now, I know there's some debate as to whether EMAW should've been for or against the team that knocked us out, but the important thing is that he considers KSU "us" and is against any enemy of EMAW.  SUPPORT THIS KID AND OTHERS LIKE HIM!   :ksu:

I was just meaning you should start a thread on Combo-Fanning called Pike or CNS_Casey or whatever and say "Why are you pro-cancer?"

The Trim/Cole combo raised $785!  Don't have exact totals but I believe the 6-person team we were on raised about $1100 total and our company raised about $3500 total.

Cole's high score was an 89.  Trim's was 216!

Yeah, that was inflated by their rules designed to raise money, where a 9 on the first roll counts as a strike.  That said, I only had 2 of those, and I wasn't even "at my best" because the 5 of us were trying to squeeze in the full last game in 30 minutes.  Even without the 9/10 thing, probably my best game ever.  Guess I should speed through it more often.
