As I’ve mentioned to some of you, again this year I’ll be taking part in the MS Bike Tour to raise money and awareness for the MS Society. It’s a very worthwhile cause that hits very close to home for me. I could really use your support. I am humbled and honoured that some gracious friends/listeners have supported the cause already. Their generousity is so much appreciated, but I’m looking for as many folks to help out as possible.
This week on Tell the Band to Go Home, I’ll be having my first (and probably last) charity radio auction. I have a whole bunch of CDs, some DVDs, VHS, books, etc that I’ll be giving away in return for pledges to the MS Bike Tour. There are some great CDs (yeah, there’s some mystery junk too) that I’ll be auctioning off on the air this week. You can call or email in a “bid” on any of the items listed, and the highest bid gets the item (hopefully others will still be willing to pay…). ALL of the money goes to the MS Society, so no matter how much you pledge, it will help out. You can bid as much or as little as you want for as many items as you want. It’s all going to a really great cause.
Get in your bid now at: https://msofs.mssociety.ca:443/2008Bike/Sponsor.aspx?PID=1060132&L=2&GC=ORS
Folks who have already given a pledge can request anything they like. I’m still hoping to bring in some new pledges, but those kind and generous folks who donated previously will be looked after somehow, someday.
We’ll be hearing music from some of the discs being given away, including Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, Dustin Bentall, Scott Nolan, Teddy Thompson, Lyle Lovett, and much more. I’ve also got a ton of new stuff to share with you, so whether you’re able to bid or not, tune in.
