St. Jude Auction Weekend Update

Feb 4, 2012

Today marks the 50th Anniversary of the St. Jude Hospital!
It was started by Danny Thomas on February 4, 1962.
It currently costs 1 million dollars every day to keep the hospital up and running. 

Yesterday was truly a great day at the auction.
We were all stunned by the presentation of a check for $58,050 from Central Elementary.
The entire school works hard for the whole month of January to contribute to the auction, and this year they truly outdid themselves.
Fifty-eight thousand dollars!
Can you believe that?

Also, another donor just contributed 99 Grand prize raffle tickets, which is a total of $9,990!

This morning we got up early to participate in the 5k, which had over 500 registrants and raised over $10,000!
We woke up to a downpour, but it didn't bother the 200+ runners who came out for the race!
It was mine and Josh's first race together and it actually turned out to be a whole lotta fun!

Team Rat

It's not too late for you to help out!

We are constantly having auction items every hour (watch the live stream on the website!) and we will be drawing for raffle items all day today and tomorrow 

So far we have already drawn for an xbox, two tvs, two ipads, and two kindles, but you can still buy chances for most of the best prizes like: 
The Canon DSLR, the mac desktop, two mac laptops, a boat, two more iPads, and another Kindle fire, a vacation to the Great Wolf Lodge, lots of jewelry, a lifetime hunting/fishing license, granite countertops, lots of guns, and tons of great gift cards! ($1,000 Visa card!)
