Time to Hit You Up for Money

I’m sure a few of you are more than aware of my newphew, Rowen.  He was diagnosed with Leukemia in February ofLast Year.  He is currently 4 years old.  Over that past 18 months, he’s responded very well to the treatments, and while the worst is over, one really can’t imagine how horrible the ‘best’ is.  Especially for a little boy, who doesn’t fully understand his condition.  This is my second year participating in “Light the Night”, an event that raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.  Each year, the people who love Rowen walk with him at this event in his name.

Sure there’s some hokey symbolic light-up balloons in the darkness symbology, but on the whole it’s a very good cause.  Last year we held a benefit comedy show for Rowen and many others lost to Leukemia by comedians I know personally.  Unfortunately this year, two separate offers at venues, and a charity ‘mini-golf’ tournament all fell through, and I was forced to drastically lower the fundraising goals for TeamRowen.com.

So please if you’d like to help others like Rowen, who aren’t as lucky as he is to have the good fortune and support structure he does, click on the link above, or visit TeamRowen.com.  The walk is in Somerset, NJ on Saturday, October 6th.  So I’ve got 72 hours to reach my goal of $500.  We’re already at $350.  I know we can do this.

Who is with me?
