I wanted to give you a quick update on TJ and alert you to a couple upcoming fundraisers for TJ and his family.
TJ is doing as well as can be expected after starting his chemo treatments a few weeks ago. Up to last week's treatment, he was doing really well; however, last week's treatment was a bit rougher. But that didn't stop him from going to a week long camp (Camp Okizu
in Paradise, CA) where he is able to spend time with his friends in a similar predicament. He returns home tomorrow. Thanks to the Zaragoza family, Jack and his brother Andrew were able to see PCPA's production of "Fiddler on the Roof" and Andrew pronounced the production "Phenomenal". Drama club representatives had a meeting in TJ and Andrew's "man cave" to kick off show selection ideas for next year, and as the saying goes, "fun was had by all".
Here is an update on upcoming fundraisers:
Allied Arts is dedicating the second weekend performances 8/9 - 8/11 of "Little Shop of Horrors" to TJ Miller. They will have a Lotto tree in the lobby and anyone over 18 can purchase a Lotto scratcher. The proceeds from the Lotto ticket sales on that weekend only will go directly to TJ. One ticket, $5 or 3 tickets for $10. They can be purchased before the show starts or at intermission. The show is directed by Randy Schwalbe and has current as well as alumni CUHS drama students.
We will be having a drive-thru/dine-in pasta dinner on September 4th. We have started selling tickets, so if you would like to buy some, get in touch with Lani Zaragoza and we'll get some to you. Mark that date on your calendar!
We're almost there with the flights for TJ and his family to Hawaii, we have all but one return ticket purchased all with donated miles. We are still looking for miles to purchase the last return trip ticket, so if you or anyone else you know has United Mileplus Miles that they can donate - it would be a good good thing.
Things are brewing in terms of "The Lion King", more news to come on that soon.
Two other opportunities to help are:
That's it for now, more to come! Please forward this to your friends and family, and thanks for all your support for the Great TJ Miller
