Hope everyone is doing well. I wanted to provide an update on Shane and give more information about the fundraiser.
The fundraiser is this Saturday, June 30th at Mullen High School, from 2pm-5pm. The fundraiser is not a formal event. The event is more like an “open house”. It is going to be a casual setting, wear whatever is comfortable, probably shorts given the heat wave we have been having. There is a time frame but you can show up whenever and leave whenever between 2 and 5. The auction will be closed around 4:35, that will give us time to go through all the lists. You do not have to stick around until the end to collect your items if you are the winning bid. The lists will ask for all of your information that way we can call you and inform you of the winning bid if yo...u leave before the end of the fundraiser. There are many items so closing the auction will be hard work for everyone involved. When you first get to Mullen, there will be a sign of where to park. There will be a table to pay for the food, which is served more as buffet style, serve yourselves. There will also be a table with card boxes if you want to give Shane or Ryan cards, and also a separate donation box. We will also, provide computers to make a donation on our fundraising site if you want. All of the auction items will be displayed on tables with a bid list in front of the item. Please don’t be afraid to ask if you have any questions.
Shane: Not too much to report on except he is improving. Physically he is still doing great. Mentally he is still getting confused and he is still experiencing a loss of memory, short and long. We did get good news yesterday, Shane was able to finally go outside for the first time in a month n half. Hopefully he will be able to continue that everyday until he is released from the hospital. Everything is still day to day but he is slowly improving.
We thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts for all of the love and support. We are closing in on $20,000 already raised for Shane, which is unbelievable. At the fundraiser I will try and get up and say a few words, and provide an update on Shane as well. I look forward to seeing all that can attend on Saturday.
