Hey 600 Bills Fans (that’s right! 6 freakin’ hundred!!!),
I touched on this a bit in the last e-mail…
I was napping on my couch a few weeks ago – half asleep watching TV – after a long boring day at work. I heard the phone ring. I figured my fiancée would answer it. That’s when she says, “you might want to get up, the Caller ID says Drew Bledsoe!”
Well it wasn’t Drew, but Drew’s father, Mac Bledsoe, calling from The Drew Bledsoe Foundation. We chatted a bit, then got down to business…
The foundation sent each Bills Backer chapter an autographed football to raffle off. All of the proceeds from the raffle are to benefit the Drew Bledsoe Foundation and their Parenting With Dignity program.
Parenting With Dignity is a non-profit 501(c)(3) parent education organization whose mission is to improve the lives of children by promoting and teaching effective parenting skills. The Parenting With Dignity curriculum presents effective techniques for raising responsible, independent children.
Now on to business… This Sunday, we will raffle off the prized autographed football. Tickets will be $5 each. We’re going to offer bonus chances!!! You can purchase 3 tickets for $10 or 5 tickets for $15.
We have a goal to reach. We want to top $500 before the drawing. If we exceed $500, the drawing will take place immediately after the game. If we fall short, we’ll extend the raffle until the Dallas game.
A little sidenote… When chatting with Mac, he mentioned that he was absolutely ecstatic about the fan support he and Drew receive from Bills fans. I told him that is our nature. I let him know that a packed McFadden’s bar is full of Bills fans pulling for his son each week!
I hope all of you will take part in the raffle. It’s a good chance to win a nice piece of memorabilia and a great opportunity to support a worthy cause!
So be there for a chance to win!!! The game is Sunday night at 8:30 against the Chiefs. We looked much better against the Skins, no? We have the swagger back! I also like the matchup of our 3rd ranked D against their 11th ranked O! Plus, the early word is that Eric Moulds will very likely be back in action.
