IT ALL ENDS TODAY!!!! Don't let it win.

To enter a raffle to win a BRAND NEW BLACK CAI for the 2010-2013 Camaro SS donated by CAI Inc ($399.99 value, and I will ship to you for free!!!), just use one of the links below to donate to a great cause - finding cures for pediatric cancer!:

Once you donate, I get notified of your donation soon after and then send your raffle entry #'s in email! If you'd like to purchase tickets using a check or Money Order, please make it out to "The Jimmy Fund" and contact me for address. Once payment is received I will send your entry numbers via email. Raffle purchases will end at midnight on July 3rd and the drawing will be 11PM (EST) on July 4th - while we celebrate US Independence, may the future bring us all independence from cancer that kills our children!

I know it's hard to trust charities these days, with the news rife with stories about shady people claiming to help kids with cancer. This one is for real though, there's nothing fishy about this - 100% of your donation goes towards pediatric cancer research. Well, there's something fishy about this, your donation is directed, by my choice, to support the cutting edge pediatric cancer research of Dr. Wolfram Goessling's Zebra Fish lab - www.fishing4stemcells.org ! Dr. Goessling practices catch and release - his research is performed on transparent live (but sleeping) fish using ultrasound. Yes, transparent Zebra fish, it's pretty cool and, face it, transparent mice would be creepy.

Please contact me with any questions, which I will be glad to respond to quickly about anything at all.

The PMC and The Jimmy Fund are 501(c)(3) charities, your donation is eligible for tax deduction. Learn more about The Jimmy Fund and Perini Clinic by clicking here!

Thank you all very much!

Mike

Couple of tips....

Please be sure to enter your email address when you make your donation/ticket purchase at http://www.pmc.org/MM0249. If you don't, I won't know how to get your numbers to you! When this happens and I can't locate the person, I can send USMail, but that's really slow and $$$$ compared to email of course

Also, when you make your donation, there is a box that says:

[ ] Check this box if this gift is a tribute

If you check that box, you can fill out a short form in Honor or Memory of someone and a letter about your donation will be sent to that person, or loved one, acknowledging your donation. It's a very nice gesture.

There's also a box where you can send a note that will show up on my profile and your kind donation will show up as part of the road the cyclists ride on - supporting them! It's pretty cool. If only I could make it have a Camaro zip by...

Hey,

Just wanted to say best of luck to you and your son. I'm a university student and just got my Camaro, LOL --paying by the month-- so money's tight! regardless I donated $10.

It's a great thing you're doing here and I'm happy to support the cause.

- Anthony

Anthony, thank you very much for your well wishes. He is doing very well, thanks to research and care - the exact thing you are supporting.

You are very fortunate to have a Camaro in college - that's awesome. I drove a Pinto in college

To answer an often asked question: I can NOT take Paypal, sorry. It's against their policy to use Paypal for things like this. I know...you'd think there would be exception to the rules for a charity event.

Thumbs up

To answer another often asked question: I'm very sorry but I can not accept trades of merchandise for raffle tickets. This effort is specifically to raise funds for pediatric cancer research and if I accept merchandise, I will then have to auction/raffle/sell that merchandise. Also, there will be questions around the value of the item. However, like this generous donation from CAI Inc., I will accept donated items that I could then auction/raffle/sell (without expectation of anything in return - except helping keep kids from dying from this insidious disease. ).

Raffle ticket purchases are coming in now - thank you so much!

Guys, THANK YOU SO MUCH for donating this unit. I will get some pictures up this weekend, just a crazy week.

Not much raffle purchase activity at this point, I hope people are just waiting to purchase the week before!

Hey guys. I read the info at the links here in the post and feel this is a good cause to support. I hope a few more of you will support this member in his effort to fund research into pediatric cancer. I bought a couple of tickets and hope some of you will also. You may win the prize!
Note - I'm not in any way connected with this raffle or the charity, I just think it's a worthwhile cause.
