Most of you know Rob and I as those people that run Monster Fest (or any of the other things we organize/participate in). We don’t usually put our personal life on social media or bring it into any of the things we run. We try to keep things separated. This year however has been a very difficult one for us and it is going to make one very significant change to Monster Fest.
Last December, my Dad died of Cancer and just over 2 weeks ago my Sister, Becky, died of Liver Cancer. Another member of my family is being treated for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma currently. The biggest Monster at Monster Fest this year, in my opinion, is Cancer.
So, this year at Monster Fest our charity will be Relay for Life. We are still going to raffle off the prize basket(s) at the end of the day BUT proceeds from the sale of all the raffle tickets from the prize basket(s) will go to my niece’s (Samantha Bowers) Relay for Life fundraiser. Sam is Becky’s daughter and she has done so much to help raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society. I know Becky is so proud of her, and so am I.
Please visit Sam’s Relay for Life table at Monster Fest and purchase a raffle ticket for a $1 each (and feel free to make any additional donations you like). Also, be sure to check out the other things she will have for sale to help raise money. 100% of the proceeds go directly to Relay for Life.
You have all donated so generously in the past and I know I can count on you to do so again for this very worthwhile cause.
Thanks for your support and for being a part of the Monster Fest family!
