As some of you may know, My wife Katie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, or more commonly known as MS. I’ve been doing fundraisers and trying to reach out to other people that have been affected by the disease, either personally or to a loved one. I’ve met a lot of great people along the way that have helped raise money or offered to come to some of the events and contribute. It means the world to me to have so many people want to be involved in one way or another. Pizza Johns, Harvey’s Pub in Essex, and Bill Bateman’s Rosedale are a few that have helped me personally in these short few months. Bateman’s will be having a wing eating Contest on Saturday, August 9th and they will donate the proceeds to the MS Society. If I forgot anyone, please know that you are appreciated.
This past Friday I did a fundraiser at Swan Song Spirits in Perry Hall and I was in awe of the hard work that they put into raising money. The Owners, Mary Kay and Remo are very good friends of mine and once they heard about my wife they talked about putting something together. They reached out to different distributors and had them donate items to be auctioned off. Ravage Deli donated 2 platters for people to eat as they walked through the store. They tied it into a wine and beer tasting and put so much effort into this cause. They raised $1,575 to help fight MS.
I really can’t put into words how much these 2 people mean to me. Honestly, 2 of the nicest people I have ever met and that was before this event. I am truly touched by the hard work of everyone and the effort that was put forth. If you are ever in the Perry Hall area, stop in and support them. Thank you Swan Song Spirits from the bottom of my heart. You will always be friends, but I consider you family.
